Is it possible to make a shared folder in 5.3


Dec 7, 2018
Hey guys,

Just so you know I am coming from using VMware. So I am trying to see if there is similar functionality here. If not, that isn't a big deal.

So this is what I am looking for.

On my VMware setup I had one server (vm) that was VPN box that shared a folder (or hard drive) that to a non-vpn server (also a vm).

I am trying to see if Proxmox can do this. I tried to create a virtual hard drive but it doesn't seem like I can just share the folder between the two.

Any help pointing me in the right direction would be greatly appreciated.

no this is not supported. But you can make an internal NFS server to provide this service.
Yes it is possible with containers at least.
If you run containers it is possible to bind mount folder into vm container.
