Hi all,

I'm trying to understand how mount points work and effectively have mounted disks within a container which I can share over NFS and SMB with OpenMediaVault6 NAS.

I've cloned a working privileged CT and mounted a point from an NFS drive 500GB for testing purposes.

when i run lsblk I can see the mountpoint and its marked as type "loop".

In the openmediavault dashboard it does not register as a drive.

Would I need to mount this to the fstab or something to achieve my goal?

End goal is to mount many virtual drives for different functions which I can access by different operating systems and also have PBS take backups of these disks.

Can someone please advise/point me in the right direction?

TIA

Edit: I've tried to create a directory and mount the share but im getting a read only error... i can create a file in the share though so not sure where im going wrong now :(

I dont think I completely understand your setup or what you are trying to do. Can i have the output of mount from the CTs?

What is the command you using to mount? Are you trying mount -t ntfs ?

so this is how I have tried the mount point:

https://soogs.xyz/wp-content/uploads/2023/07/image-1.png (ignore that capacity is showing as 0 - VM hosting shares is offline (had to pass the drives through to another VM to do mass transfer)).

I have various NFS shares (NTFS drives) and I have created a 500GB test mount using the GUI as above image.

What I want to do: have shared folders I can backup via proxmox backup server - so my thinking is mount shares to a CT and back that CT and its mounts... does this make sense?

Thanks.
