Jupyter-fs not working on Zero to JupyterHub on Kubernetes

Hello there!

I am working on deploying a Zero to JupyterHub on Kubernetes instance in a university context. Students and researchers should be able to access the universities smb/cifs storage on their own. This is where I came across jupyter-fs. I installed jupyter-fs through a Dockerfile and while jupyter-fs works as intended when I run the container manually in docker, jupyter-fs does not work if the same image is deployed in Zero to JupyterHub on Kubernetes. I am uncertain on why that is. (I used the helm chart v1.0.0.)

Has anyone implemented jupyter-fs Zero to JupyterHub on Kubernetes successfully?

I am grateful for any suggestions or help in this regard.
