    How to share bulk storage across guests using Samba or mount points?

    I've setup my hardware storage layer using LVM/LVM thin, and now I'm trying to figure out how to share bulk storage across guests (e.g. between a Debian server and a Jellyfin container) in such a way that it's not included in container back-ups. I've found two approaches: 1. Samba on Proxmox...
