    Configure or disallow concurrent backups

    hmm thanks spirit, I really thought that this as a think that could be improved, instead of creating schedules manually for each node, since takes some trial and following to proper setup backup times to not overlap, considering the classic "backup everything on the weekend" scheduling.

    installation and boot via NVMe

    I think Wolfgang suggested this workarround for you to be a friendly neighbor, since it appears that you already bought the hardware without proper infos on support from the manufacturer (if you have more infos on it, please let us know) I believe most of the binaries on proxmox are possible to...

    For performance curiosity: What would be the use or gain in performance using a NVMe disk for system / boot device?
