Virtual Linux as NFS server

Oracle VirtualBox Guides.

http://www.mede8er.click/Guides/NFSGuide.html

This guide uses a fixed VHD which Windows can mount to be loaded with media.

This guide uses Windows Pro Tools for NFS clients to fill the ext4 drive via network access.

Hyper-V guide.

http://www.mede8er.click/Guides/HyperV.html

Copy files by making NFS drive Online or Offline. No virtual drive is used.

Upgraded to build a Generation 2 Virtual Machine, by disabling Secure Boot in its emulated motherboard firmware (not the actual motherboard bios).

Hyper-V guide being updated to use VHDX for the media store. That is natively supported by Windows and can be mounted to place media on it.  Hyper-V prefers using virtual drives.

Debian has some kind of memory leak.  If i use Dynamic Memory it always ends up using all  the memory allowed.

I am testing Ubuntu-Mate, which is also pihole compatible.

The trick to changing its system files like fstab and exports is the command "sudo caja".  That opens the file manager with Root priviledges.

The original VirtualBox guide  has been changed to use a VHD for media storage.  Despite what Microsoft says, its possible to create a VHD bigger than 2TB.  That means we can use a format  that both VirtualBox and Windows supports, making it easier to load media.
