  1. Shared Storage on a Gigabyte Home Network

    Hello all, I have been thinking of setting up Shared Storage for 3 Proxmox nodes. This will mean 4 systems (NAS, pve1, pve2, pve3).

    I've had this problem for a while here now, and I've turned the internet upside down trying to figure it out, but there is very, very little information out there about this specific warning.
