I have a remote Ubuntu server and I'd like to create a virtual disk image there and use it with IMDISK on a windows machine.
For that I tried using DEVIO. I created an empty file, created a partition inside it (with fdisk), then formatted it into ntfs (with mkfs). Then I start DEVIO
/devio_Linux_i686 -r 666 /dev/image1.img Successfully opened 'image1.img'. Image size used: 268435456 bytes. No master boot record detected. Using entire image. Total size: 268435456 bytes. Using 268435456 bytes from offset 0. Required alignment: 1 bytes. Buffer size: 2097152 bytes. Waiting for connection on port 666. Press Ctrl+C to cancel.
Then I run IMDISK on Windows machine
C:\Windows\system32>imdisk -a -t proxy -o ip -f xx.xx.xx.xx:666 -m Z: -b 264192 -s 134217728 Creating device... Created device 6: Z: -> 18.104.22.168:666 Notifying applications... Done.
But the drive, created by IMDISK is unformatted. And I cannot format it from Windows machine, because
Cannot format. This volume is write protected. Format failed.
Where am I wrong? Should I create better image file with some specific tool?
Thank you for your help.
