Add new node with latest pve version to existing running cluster


Oct 21, 2022
Hi all,

I've running 3 nodes cluster with version "pve-manager 7.4-3 (running kernel: 5.15.102-1-pve)".

Recently, we received a new server on which i had installed Proxmox and done apt updates and the version is "pve-manager 7.4-15 (running kernel: 5.15.108-1-pve)".

Even though pve-manager and kernel versions differ, can i add this new server to my existing running cluster? (3 +1 = 4 nodes).

Thanks in advance.
You can. But same version is better sometimes.
If you use HA, you will have problem with quorum with 4 nodes.
