Assuming you wanted sync and not just a shared volume the guest/host running rsync to push/pull would work the best. But to be totally honest what I do right now to allow guests access to stuff on the host file system is just CIFS/SMB shares. It would probably be better to do NFS shares but I have a few windows guests that don't play nice with NFS.
There is a bit of future work here though where someone could make some guest utils and stand up a file system bridge. There is some demand there and honestly it could be as simple as what virtualbox does where it provides a CIFS/SMB share through a local pipe. Whatever the solution is there I would lean more toward CIFS/SMB since it does have better cross-platform compatibility. --- Jason Barbier | E: ja...@corrupted.io GPG: 0x40B8FA1D72EF0D89 (https://keybase.io/kusuriya) On Mon, Jan 22, 2018, at 7:45 AM, tech-lists wrote: > Hello lists, > > If I have two bhyve hosts, production [p] and reserve [r], and on both > there are identical guest[s]  and , what is the best way to sync > the guests?
