Seeing outside drives with server loaded as a VM RRS feed

  • Question

  • I currently have home server installed as a VM on my main workstation box.  Is there a way for it to see the drives on my home box to share the content?

  • Whether it can be done, and how you do it, will depend on your virtualization tool; if you can mount a physical drive to a VM, Windows Home Server will be able to share data from it. Please consult the documentation and technical support for that tool for exact capabilities and procedures.

    Edit: Assuming you're running Windows Home Server 2011, that is. Windows Home Server V1 requires you to let it manage data, not some other tool/computer/etc.

    I'm not on the WHS team, I just post a lot. :)
