    PVE Ceph Rules for HDD Pools of Different Sizes

    I apologize as I am sure this question has probably been answered a thousand times but I cannot find appropriate documentation and I'm still too new on my Proxmox/Ceph journey to apparently get the right google terms. I have a 3 node Proxmox Cluster with all HDD Disks and an already setup...

    Little bit a ceph beginner here. I followed the directions from Sébastien Han and built out a ceph crushmap with HDD and SSD in the same box. There are 8 nodes each contributing an SSD and an HDD. I only noticed after putting some data on there I goofed and put a single HDD in the SSD group...
