Hi,

during the training this week, we have play a lot of different storage (zfs, lvm-thin, ...)

and all students said that define nodes local fs in datacenter  /etc/pve/storage.fg is really strange.


for example, how can you define a storage name "local" with zfs on node1, and another storage "local" with lvm-thin on node2 ?

or if you want to define a local storage on node1, you need to define it in datacenter then restrict it to node1.


also, if you are on gui on node1, and want to define a zfs storage on node3, you can't because you can parse zfs vols of node3 from node1.



Couldn't it better to define local storage in

/et/pve/nodes/xxxx/storage.fg


and shared storages in

/et/pve/storage.cfg

?
