I've got a 2016 server that we're moving up to Google Cloud Services, and part of it entails connecting a Google Capture Device to the network to move the data. We've opted for NFS Capture as the best way to deal with this, but I've never messed with this, and have a question:
I've mounted an NFS share on the drive containing the data I'd like to share. I'll call it D:. It's in a shares folder, and is empty. Am I going to have to move the data I want transferred over to this, or is there a way to simply allow the device to access D$? The drive is close to full, and while it's a virtual drive that I could theoretically expand, I'd prefer to not have to move the 26 million files over.
I attempted to simply create a shortcut, but my Ubuntu VM didn't know how to handle that. I assume the same will be true for the Google appliance.
TL;DR - I need an effective way to capture an entire drive on a production machine and have to use NFS shares to grant access to the device used to capture the data.
