NFS share from node


Nov 11, 2023
I may be approaching this the wrong way... I have a disk with existing files, I'd like to share the contents with vms and containers in the single node.

root@hive:~# cat /etc/pve/storage.cfg
dir: local
        path /var/lib/vz
        content iso,backup,vztmpl

lvmthin: local-lvm
        thinpool data
        vgname pve
        content rootdir,images

btrfs: the_vault
        path /mnt/the_vault/pve-storage
        content snippets,iso,backup,rootdir,vztmpl,images
        is_mountpoint /mnt/the_vault
        nodes hive

nfs: files
        path /mnt/the_vault
        export /space/files
        options vers=3,soft


This is likely complicated by the fact that I'm also using the disk to store snippets,iso,backup,rootdir,vztmpl,images. is my node's IP and I'm not sure at all what export is supposed to be. I looked all over the web and found nothing of note.

Am I doing this all wrong? I'm starting to guess I may need to split the "the_vault" partition into two. One for access to isos, backups, ect. The other for the nfs share...

Also not sure what I could use under content, since nothing seems to be related to just using the existing files.
