Can I check "KRBD" on existing Ceph VM Storage

I store my VM Disk images on CEPH storage.

I´m wondering if I can check the "KRBD" option on existing storage, without losing data?
You can, it just tells KVM to use the Kernel RBD client instead of the librbd. Any VM stopped -> started, will use it.
