Connecting Two Proxmox Servers: Linking vmbr1 from Server 1 to Server 2

Hello everyone ! I have two physical servers with Proxmox, but my second server is not used because I want to connect it with the vmbr1 of the first server. Is it possible ?

Hi all Proxmox users! I recently acquired two physical servers on which I installed Proxmox. My first server is developed operational and works without problems. However, I end up with a second server which is currently unused. I would like to find a way to bind it to the vmbr1 network of the first server in order to maximize my resources and optimize my infrastructure.

I was wondering if any of you had ever encountered a similar situation or had any idea how powerful such a setup might be. I did some research and read the official Proxmox documentation, but couldn't find any specific information on how to link two Proxmox servers in this way.

I understand that Proxmox offers many powerful and flexible features, but I'm not sure if such a configuration is supported directly. I'm aware that I could set up a VPN gateway or network bridge, but would like to know if a simpler, integrated solution is available.

If anyone has any advice, suggestions, or experience with this setup, I would really appreciate your help. I am open to all ideas
