Adding an OSD requires root

We've split users into groups and allocated different roles to each group (essentially admins and non-admin users). Non-admin users are limited to performing VM functions, while users in the admin group have the built-in role "Administrator" applied. This should give them the ability to perform any Proxmox function, but we noticed that adding OSDs as these users does not work and the error outputted is:

Permission check failed (user != root@pam) (403)

Is there a way around this? Logging in as root to add disks is sub-optimal.

Thanks in advance for any replies.

currently not via the gui

via the cli you could implement some sudo rules for this

we want to improve those things in the future but for now there is no privilege that has 'root' access for things like this
