I've got a question - I'm creating 4 nodes cluster, storage will be directory on every node, can I use the same name of storage on every node? Will it work?
How to do it properly to migrate vms with local storage disks?
 
Hi,
I've got a question - I'm creating 4 nodes cluster, storage will be directory on every node, can I use the same name of storage on every node? Will it work?
yes, that is recommended. The storage configuration is shared across all nodes, so if you have the same local storage on each, you only need to configure one entry for it.
How to do it properly to migrate vms with local storage disks?
Migration for both VMs (online and offline) and containers between storages of the same type work. When the storage has the same name, it's even easier, otherwise you'd need to explicitly specify the target storage.
