Hi,I want to have a fileserver as VM running under proxmox. Currently I have two options to get access an internal harddisk from different VMs / Proxmox:1. passthrough the hdd to my NAS-VM and have an NFS- or CIFS-share to access the disk from proxmox / other VMs2. like 1st, but have the disk mounted in proxmox as well (or other VMs)With 2nd option I faced the issue that there were corrupted data on the disk. But with 1st option I am not able to monitor the disk via SMART...Does anyone have an idea how to solve my issue? I need SMART-capability and access from different servers (at least my NAS-VM and proxmox itself) to the harddiskregards,astrakid
