So I am planning on running a Server with all the goodies mostly things like Plex, Blue Iris, etc..
So I wanted to install the VM’s / Core stuff of course on my SSD and then I wanted to give permissions to use say Folders on my 2x 10TB disks for storage, backups, etc.
I don’t want to VM partition the drives or anything like that. As in if my system were to die or crash I could easily take the disks out and throw them into another PC and grab my standard files and such.
I looked into Proxmox but was not a fan of all the command line and ZFS stuff.
I also considered a NAS like VM but I’m not sure if I can say pass over the entire Disk Drive to the VM so it acts like it owns it and treats it correctly.
I’m a bit of a newbie but either way wanted to know if ESXi would solve this and make my life easier.
