    Hi, There's something I think I'm doing wrong. I have Proxmox on a host with a ZFS pool inside. How do I best access the files on the ZFS volumes from containers? I have read suggestions to serve the files over NFS directly from the host. This seems like a round-about way (ZFS > host > NFS >...

    [SOLVED] Bind mount to reflect Samba mount owner/permissions?

    I have a few containers running on Proxmox and have a challenge with a Bind mount vs a Samba share. Container 101 has a directory shared via Samba (it's effectively my NAS).
