Mapping local drive to VM XPEnology


Recommended Posts

Hi All

 

I managed to create a small fast XPEnology machine running on my NVMe cache drive and it works great

And it easy to backup and try updates and if it doesn't work just roll back again

 

But because of the size limit I only have 200G for the Apps and as the primary drive running the DSM

So I was wondering is there any way to pass a local folder on my server like

/Photo/ --> to a Synology shared path folder on the XPEnology NAS

In other VM's this is really easy just to create a new folder and map it to some path in the running VM

 

I am currently running this on a UNRAID server with the built in VM functionality and so far everything works great

To begin with a parsed a full HD to the VM, but I dont like having the files only accessible to the XPEnology VM!

 

Hope someone can share some light on this

Running the latest DSM on a 3617xs + 4 port Intel NIC as a passthrough actual HW

I run a VM of xpenology as well for more cameras in surveillance. I just use "Mount Remote Folder" under file station and use CIFS, check the mount automatically option and for me it works great, keeps all my recordings on one drive.

So is this a SMB mount? or WEBDAV? my automount haven't been stable and I have to remount the shares manually
