I came across Cockpit and its ZFS manager which works on PVE 6.x fresh install and also PVE 6.X upgrade from pve5to6 with a few ln- s

It can take take of 98% of zfs cli such as trim, attache, detach, replace, snapshot, rollback, clone and etc...

To install cockpit on PVE 6.0,
Code:
echo "deb http://deb.debian.org/debian buster-backports main" > /etc/apt/sources.list.d/buster-backport.list;
apt update;
apt-get -t buster-backports install cockpit -y;
apt install git -y;
git clone https://github.com/optimans/cockpit-zfs-manager.git
cp -r cockpit-zfs-manager/zfs /usr/share/cockpit;

systemctl enable cockpit.service;
systemctl start cockpit.service;

#for pve5to6
CMDS="cat grep echo lsblk"
for ONE in $CMDS ; do
  echo -n "Check $ONE in /usr/bin... "
  if [ -e "/usr/bin/$ONE" ]; then
    echo "Exists"
  else
    echo "not exists, do link"
    sudo ln -s /bin/$ONE /usr/bin/$ONE
  fi
done

Hi, has anybody tried cockpit with proxmox 7? Debian is supported by cockpit but the thing worrying me are all the dependencies cockpit wants to install. I am afraid I will mess up the proxmox.
Damn I really want the ZFS manager....
