Adding Storage HDD from a Synology NAS


New Member
Aug 15, 2023

i´m pretty new to all this, but managed my way through setting Proxmox (8.0) up on my G4 800, with an M2 as only disk. Working fine so far.
The reason why i did this, is because i wanted to ultimately switch from my Synology NAS (old Kernel, some Docker Containers not working anymore).

So, long story short: I took the (btrfs formated) hdds, plugged them into my new server and - well, at least they appear (see attached pic).
But how on earth do i do the following 2 things:

1. I have an Windows 11 VM running - how can i have these disks appear within it?
2. I have Jellyfin Docker running - same question here: how can i access them?

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

You are running a 20TB btrfs raid0?
One option might be to set up a Linux VM as a NAS, passthrough the two HDDs and then use SMB shares within your VMs and docker containers. But keep in mind that unprivileged LXCs won't allow you to mount SMB/NFS shares directly.
No RAID at all ...those are single disks from 2 different NAS Systems.
I was just able to install and run XPenology successfull ...and add the 2 hdds in question with "qm set 103 -sata1 /dev/disk/by-id/ata-TOSHIBA_HDWG31E_Y1G0A06DFUWH".
To my suprise it´s working :)
So, that basically fits all my needs, exept that i can´t do the same within Jellyfin which is runnin in a lxc. i installed it by running this script:

is there any way i could add them with another command? (don´t shoot me, first time linux user).
