Ahhh ok , I thought about going with freenas because before my old friend who is also a linux sysadmin had a crossover from my nas to my server. which worked great. Would like to re do that but I don't know if freenas would erase my drives after I change it
In a Linux container, mounting network drives is a bit different -- You'll need to mount the drive on the host (in /etc/fstab), create the folder to which you want to mount it on inside the container, and then edit the lxc configuration file in /etc/pve/lxc on the host.
Example, add one mountpoint on my crashplan ct, lxc 107:
You'll need to edit the /etc/pve/lxc/107.conf file on the ProxMox host in question:
mp0 points to the hosts location, mp points to the containers location
For each additional mount point, just count up:
and so on
Keep in mind, I already have samba shares mounted to /Storage/* on the ProxMox host via the /etc/fstab file:
\\<nas-ip-address>/Backups /Storage/Backups cifs username=<user>,password=<password> 0 0
So, I'm going to use Proxmox for my server mainly because I like It's fun and I know about Debian a little. but PPMguire told me about a way to make windows into a NAS which I'm more leaning twoards that because it's hella simple. Would you be able to show me when time comes possibly how to mount a NTFS network share to plex in a Ubuntu Container?
