in my old clusters/ servers the disks on iscsi-lvm storages.

for rbd import i have to mount the old storage in my new environment, right?

it is possible to change the vm-id in this way?

do you have an example for me?

thanks a lot

You would need to do a move disk and manually copy the vmid.conf (if not the same cluster). Better use backup->restore.

No. A backup->restore will take care of it.
