I'm new to running virtual machines and I have a couple questions.
I have a Fedora 14 box with an 8 core Bulldozer processor that is running VirtualBox with Windows. This machine has several terabytes running in a software RAID and holds all of the files uploaded to the site.
I need to be able to SSH into the Windows VM from the other servers. To make the Windows VM appear as an independent server on the network, do I use "Bridged networking"? Is this the most optimum way?
Also, I have a piece of command line software I'll be using through SSH that needs to run on the Windows machine. This software expects some files to be in a default location and this cannot be changed. I have the Windows VM auto-mounting the RAID storage to the "E" drive and the CLI software needs to operate on some of these files.
The default directory should be C:\Common Files\example. Is it possible to "alias" the "example" folder to the E:\ RAID?
I really appreciate any help I can get. As I said, I'm quite new to virtual machines besides the cross browser testing I've done before.
