Sharing data between LXC, virtuals and other station in LAN


Jun 20, 2021
I am a novice user of Proxmox, but at the same time delighted with it :)
I want to use Proxmox at home, for a home server, for my own use and that of a few friends.
I have a question about good practice.
I would like to have some virtuals and LXC in it. But I would also like some of these virtuals to share disk resources between each other and between my work computer, i.e. I can easily copy data between them.
What is the best way to do this? Is NFS a good idea? Maybe another protocol?
I will add that I am using LVM, not ZFS.
Ok, thx.
In that case, please help me how to run this NFS? I would like the Proxmox host to be an NFS server and share one of the drives or preferably one partition. Does Proxmox support this or do I have to separately install NFS into Debian and configure it manually?
