FC Storage Mapping to ProxMox

Hi Guys,
We are trying to use ProxMox on our environment.

I wanted to ask
If I'm having a disk mapped from a Nimble Storage, and now I want that all of the nodes will be able to store VM's on it, what is the best way to do it ?

Please see the screen capture.
I can see there my LUN from 4 paths. Now, what should I do in order to be able to start store VMs on it ?
No matter what I'm trying to do, it's not working for me .
[I tried to Initialized disk with GPT/Creare LVM volume group etc.]

Thanks in advance


you have to make one large LUN and use it as LVM on the PVE.
Hi, OK, that's what I wanted from the beggining.
But, how can I do it please ?

[You mean to mount it inside the PVE OS ?]

Can you please guide me little bit ?

Thanks in advance
That's more related to you Storage and not PVE. Delete the 4 LUN and create a bigger one, then mount this LUN again and create LVM on it.
