mount problem is still happening any ideas badger? its been booted for 4+ hours. 

 

Do you have an ip address?

 

ip add 

 

Can you ping "tower"?

 

ping tower

 

Can you ping the ip address of "tower"?

 

ping X.X.X.X <--- Whatever that is

 

If you have an IP and can ping the IP Address of "Tower"...

 

showmount -e <--- Whatever that is

 

Post back with what you find.

@Badger and Shortbus, Thanx for the reply's!

 

I just changed my unraid network.cfg and arch.cfg to  reflect "br0" instead of "xenbr0"  and rebooted the unraid machine.  (figured maybe it didnt link xenbr0...)

 

Same problem see below:

Its booted fine, but I do not see anything on /net

 

And this command ]  not work, maybe I use swedish keyboard, need to use ctrl key.....

 

 

config file

name = "archVM"
bootloader = "pygrub"

1. It is Ctrl + ] to escape the VM console.

 

2. You won't see anything under /net until you tell it where to look.

 

ls /net/Tower/  <--- this will show you /mnt if it worked

Thanks, now I see my share  :D

@ironicbadger

It show my NFS share, but now I like to see my samba share, but thats maybe is not implemented yet  ;)

 

Thanks for exelent WORK!

I've been consumed with XBMC today, but if you want to have a go at doing it yourself and then sharing the resulting auto.master file I can add it to the next build.

I thought the Arch img was supposed to auto mount the shares?

 

I can manually mount it via

IronicBadger, thanks again for providing the ArchVM image! It may not be mandatory, I just went through the process of changing LOCALE and Time Zone on the image you created. Others may want to do likewise; if so here's the poop scoop:

 

For LOCALE: https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/Beginners'_Guide#Locale

the image is set for en_GB and one can use ^W while in nano to search for the string

 

For TIME ZONE: https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/Beginners'_Guide#Time_zone

since there's already a symbolic link in the image use "rm /etc/localtime" before adding the one for your time zone. I believe there's no reason to worry about HW clock

It doesn't yet auto mount samba. It does automount NFS.

 

You could edit the VMs /etc/fstab file to make the samba stick between reboots. I installed the relevant samba utils, just didn't configure them to automount. That's why it works manually.

Tracking, how do i get it to automount NFS. I used samba as a work around because i could not get NFS to work.

 

cd /net/Tower/mnt/user/nameofshare

 

Update Tower to match your servers name. Also to see what shares are available run

 

showmount Tower -e

 

Example...

 

root@Tower:~# showmount unraid -e
Export list for unraid:
/mnt/user/Media *

thats whats not working

 

[root@ArchApplianceVM .custom]# showmount Tower -e
clnt_create: RPC: Unknown host
[root@ArchApplianceVM .custom]# cd /net/Tower/mnt/user/Data
-bash: cd: /net/Tower/mnt/user/Data: No such file or directory
[root@ArchApplianceVM .custom]# cd /net/Tower/
-bash: cd: /net/Tower/: No such file or directory

 

tower is my server name =)

No just arch.img not sure what the zip file was called, i downloaded it last night...

 

also

 

1. i have my plex lib on my unraid cache drive, do you have a good example on how to symlink the databases with the pacman installed version of plex?

2. Is there a way to make the arch img bigger (expand it)

Symlink is

 

ln -sf <source> <target>

 

The Arch img is fixed. I can make a bigger one if you want, but I'm also experimenting with making the /home directory independent of the rootfs (the OS) so you could potentially mount the /home dir via NFS to an unraid share. Not sure how well that'll work due to the network delay at start (same for every VM regardless of VM).
