new to BalenaOS, trying to mount CIFS

Good morning all,

I just installed balenaOS (production) on a RPI4 and was trying to create a mount point on the host OS to connect to a SMB share I have on my network to make it available to my containers.

I tried using the terminal and the entire filesystem appears to be readonly so I can’t create directories or even modify /etc/fstab

Is this intended behavior or have I missed a step someplace?

Anyone else have experience doing this?

For your use case have a look at
