I know there are plenty of guides on doing this, but I'm just wondering if simply specifying a tag at VM creation, and then mounting that inside the VM is the proper way to do this.


The reason I ask is because generally you never want to have 1 disk mounted under two separate systems, correct?  Doesn't that just guarantee file system corruptions?


Maybe I'm not fully understanding the process here, but after reading several guides I'm a bit worried to just follow this advice blindly.


I'm trying to mount all of my shares, so is the best way to do this to specify each one separately, e.g.

Personally I just use NFS to mount them on my guest machines. I only mount the shares that I need.

Not sure what are the best practices however so I'm curious to hear about what others have to say. I've never used the built-in option in the template to use a share.
