How to move ceph mgr to a specific mgr node


Oct 19, 2021

I have a ceph cluster with 6 nodes, and 3 nodes has mgr installed, and one (Proxmox2) is active and 2 are standby. I had an active zabbix agent installed on proxmox2, so it will send ceph info to zabbix server and it is working fine. But, every time when I have problem with proxmox2, ceph mgr automatic moved mgr to other node, and proxmox2 will become standby after I resolve issue. then I lost ceph data on zabbix server, I have to stop other mgr node in GUI and force it to move back to proxmox2 (because I have 3 mgr nodes, everytime I have to move twice in order get back to proxmox2)

wondering whether there is a command that will manually to move mgr from one node to a specific node? thanks for your help.
