Delete directory setting for partition


New Member

Somehow my storage partiton has been assigned to directory /mnt/datastore/store1 which seems to be the mountpoint for the partition. How do I change this? I can change everything else! I want my datastores to be located under /Storage and not under /mnt so I need to remove and replace this Directory setting.

the mount unit is a systemd one it should be under /etc/systemd/system/mnt-datastore-store1.mount
(see 'man systemd.mount' how to configure these, not that the filename is relevant!)

if you change the mountpoint of your datastore, you also have to adapt the path in /etc/proxmox-backup/datastore.cfg
