Path for ISO Share Folders

Postby T-One » Fri Apr 08, 2011 7:53 pm

Hello,

is it possible to set a path where the mounted ISO Share folders are displayed? If i Mount a ISO file via the "ISO Share Folders" Menu the mounted ISO will be displayed at the top of my NAS in /[isofoldername] but i want them to be mounted in a subfolder of my qnap, is that possible? I have about 40 ISO-Files to mount and with all ISOs mounted at the top-level it will be get pretty messy.

Thanks in advance

Do you know where the qnap software stores the configs for the loop mounts?
maybe i can change them by hand...

If you don't want to use the built-in functionality for this, then you should not mess with the config file it uses at all.
You can mount ISO images on your NAS using the same "mount" commands as any other Linux distro.

To figure out how to do this please consult Google.

There are issues to consider when working on an embedded Linux machine, so please research this very carefully.
For example the "/etc/fstab" on your NAS resides in the RAMdisk, so you'll need to figure out how to manipulate it safely at each boot to get the desired results. If you are Linux CLI savvy, then perhaps you'll want to look into it. If you aren't then you would be well advised to not attempt it.

I can share that it is possible. (I do it here, in order to support my PXE Server on my NAS). I am loath to provide a script example of how I do it, as playing with the "mount" command can be dangerous if not used properly. Please research it yourself, so that you are fully aware of the issues in play.
