    I have Cluster on 4 Nodes over Proxmox 5
    3 nodes working with Ceph Shared storage and one node with with local ZFS
    now, I want to migrate LXC container from node #4 with localzfs to
    Node #1 with Ceph storage, and I got this error:
    Code:
    2017-10-11 16:38:56 ERROR: migration aborted (duration 00:00:00): storage 'localzfs' is not available on node 'server201'
    TASK ERROR: migration aborted
    any option to migrate and select the storage in target node?

    Regards,

    Thanks wolfgang!
    any plan to add this to GUI?
    mean, add storage drop down under the target destination, show the available storage options for each target node for example?

    Regards,

    You can first try to change to host and then the storage...

    I thought we had already drawn it.

    Please open a feature request for this.

    Hi,
    sorry I wrote the wrong way around.
    Add the ceph storage to the last node, migrate the VM on that host to the ceph storage and then change host..

    Regards, Jonas
