Hi, we're getting started with proxmox and I want to ask you about 2 things.
I have a lot of users who have access to disks of a limited number. How can I expand the disk pools on promox to make one big disk and scale it all the time?
The second question is can 1 virtual machine use the resources of 2 proxmox hosts?
I would like to use the TrueNas system for connecting and scanning disks, on which I will share disks via iSCSI

Not sure what you're asking with regard to the disks but each VM can only use the resources of the host it is running on

For example, I have several servers with FreeNas installed and proxmox disks are shared with nigo and proxmox sees it as one large virtual disk. Can he do it?

Still not sure what you mean but Proxmox is very flexible with regard to storage and how it is allocated and shared. Possibly you could 'virtualise' your FreeNas servers under Proxmox if that turned out to be the best way to achieve your objectives.

TrueNas will do for me as disk arrays, for example, 6 and each of them will have disks, e.g. 3x 8TB which in total gives 144 TB and now I want to scale it and in proxmox I want to see one large disk, i.e. 144 TB. Can I do this? You may not understand me a bit because I use Google Translate

If you have many hosts, and each host has 3 x 8TB, then you can create Ceph or Gluster storage pools which span across the hosts
But then how do I connect the shared drives with truenas? After ISCSI?
