I just set up a NAS and I'm wondering if anyone has a guide/best practices/etc for using the NAS to store the VMs (Workstation Pro 16.2 based).
In an ideal world, there would be some way to open the VM and have it download from the NAS, run locally, and then when closed pushed back to the NAS. I'd assume this is the most performant way to use my PC (i9-12900K, PCI-E 4.0 NVMe SSD) but it seems that I need to do this manually.
Alternatively, I've just moved over to a 10G Ethernet network so I could run the VM from the NAS but this does seem slower than running it locally so I'm wondering if maybe there is something I need to configure or there is a different way to set up the VM so this is faster (iSCSI/LUN/etc).
If anyone has comments/suggestions/guides I'd really appreciate the education.
I'd be interested in this too. I've recently setup a 4TB RAID NAS and would like to move my VMs from my local drive to the NAS and point to the NAS.
