> If you have existing NFS exports that you were using with PVE 1.x and you want
> to use them with 2.0 without moving files around or changing the mount points,
> you can create symlinks to let PVE 2.0 see the files.
> For ISO directories:
> # mkdir /data/iso/template
> # ln -s .. /data/iso/template/iso
> For backup directories:
> # rmdir /backup/pve/dump
> # ln -s . /backup/pve/dump
> rmdir is needed because it's likely that PVE has already created an empty
> "dump" directory. In my setup it didn't do so on the ISO directory because it's
> mounted read-only on the PVE servers (it's managed from another server).
