Proxmox exempt on virtual machine cluster

Jun 28, 2019

Is possible to configure a specific proxmox node to not participate to the available cluster nodes when creating a virtual machine?

This node does not have RAM/CPU for KVM guests, but I want to use it to only for the Ceph Cluster (monitor/osd)...

Any tips to accomplish this?
Storage can be restricted to specific nodes. So you mark your storage available on all nodes but exclude that special one.

For storage nodes ok, just not participate from the CEPH Cluster, but how can I do that for KVM host? I mean, when creating a virtual machine this host should not be displayed as an available host to accommodate this new virtual machine..
