    we have to migrate about 200 VMs from our old PVE-Hosts/Clusters to our new PVE-Ceph Cluster.

    thanks a lot

    You can import disk images with
    Code:
    rbd import
    command.

    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.
