- Add Plex UID and GID for NFS on Host
- Start Plex Server container mounting the config and data volumes from NFS
- Setup NFS mount on PRT Slave Host

- Start PRT Slave container mounting the config and data volumes from NFS
I've created a Github project that's a combination of Tim's and Weston's work wrapped up with a shell script:
