[SOLVED] Cluster, local zfs not working


New Member
Jul 3, 2023
I just created a cluster with two fresh and up to date installations of Proxmox VE. As you can see the local.zfs for the second node is not working.
How can I fix this issue?
Please explain in detail as I'm a super beginner.

Can you please post the output of the following commands from the `Homelab3` node?

zfs list
cat /etc/pve/storage.cfg
Thanks for the reply @Moayad.

Here is the result

Is the issue coming from homelab1 being setup as zfs raid 1 as this server has 2 ssd while homelab3 ext4 on one hdd ?

The output of `zfs list` said `no datasets available` maybe you didn't installed the Homelab3 node as ZFS?
No, I installed it at ext 4 because i have only one drive and its on a zimaboard while homelab1 is on r720xd with 2 ssd in zfs, will it create an issue to have one node in zfs and the other one not?

How to solve?
I ended up buying some additional drives for both nodes to be on zfs Raid 1. Again, erased and reinstalled, updated everything and this time it is working great.
