Moving containers and VM's to my new Proxmox 8 node

I've just finished installing proxmox 8 on a new machine and I've created a cluster in order to move everything over to new proxmox 8. When I try to migrate an offline container, it's looking for storage of the same name on the new node. What I was hoping was to choose the destination storage when doing the migration.

What am I doing wrong?


for the migration to work, you will have to have the same storage available on the target node, see

So either create the storage on the target node with the same parameters or go the backup/restore route to transfer your CT to the other node.
