    Hey , another question the NAS you run how well you recommend it for what I'm doing. Which is just using it for PLEX media and a Single Network Share?

    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

    I'm a Linux sysadmin so ProxMox is my go-to

    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: /Storage/Backups,mp=/Storage/Backups

    mp0 points to the hosts location, mp points to the containers location

    For each additional mount point, just count up:
    mp1: /Storage/Dropbox,mp=/Storage/Dropbox
    mp2: /Storage/Movies,mp=/Storage/Movies

    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
    etc etc

    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?
