New novice user trying to use Proxmox. This software is very unpleasant.
could this possibly be any more over complicated and unfriendly?

```
creating data pool 'cephfs_data'...
pool cephfs_data: applying application = cephfs
pool cephfs_data: applying pg_num = 128
creating metadata pool 'cephfs_metadata'...
pool cephfs_metadata: applying pg_num = 32
configuring new CephFS 'cephfs'
Successfully create CephFS 'cephfs'
Adding 'cephfs' to storage configuration...

```

its a brand new install for gods sake. Shouldn’t this stuff be working by default?

And now I can’t even delete this CephFS garbage because it says it’s all in use

This is absolutely hideous
 
It’s holding my entire installation hostage

every aspect of it won’t delete, ranging from a nonsensical timeout error to complaining about being in use. I think I’m just gonna wipe out my entire Proxmox at this point, I am so sick of dealing with what have been a 2 second task

i would never buy Proxmox and I was considering it - nothing works properly

It seems like you are trying to create a Ceph 'cluster' with one node which is kinda pointless since Ceph is a clustered file storage. You need to have at least 3 nodes for a properly working Ceph cluster, which is why you are running into those issues.
