    There are already some traces of BTRFS handling code in the installer, it may get picked up again in the future. It'd be nice to see some of this fixed: https://btrfs.wiki.kernel.org/index.php/Status

    Quoting from https://pve.proxmox.com/wiki/Storage_Replication : Storage replication brings redundancy for guests using local storage and reduces migration time. It replicates guest volumes to another node so that all data is available without using shared storage. Replication uses snapshots to minimize traffic sent over the network. Therefore, new data is sent only incrementally after an initial full sync.

    From https://forum.proxmox.com/threads/proxmox-ve-5-0-released.35451/ : For all organizations using local storage the Proxmox replication feature is a great option to increase data redundancy for high I/Os avoiding the need of complex shared or distributed storage configurations.

    As a conclusion, Ceph is already a distributed network storage, Storage Replication makes no sense for it. It applies only to fast local storage, with remote send/receive incremental capabilities like ZFS, BTRFS.

    Hi,

    Hmm, I cant reproduce that here – at least not with simply setting swap size to 4GB.
    Note that you do not get a real feedback if it works until you look in the installed system, we're trying to improve this a bit.
    Can you please open a new thread with information how to reproduce? I.e. your disk size, file system used, entered settings in the disk dialog and anything else which could be rellevant. Thanks!

    Hi, sorry for wasting your time and repeating my question.

    Is Cloudinit planned in 5.x branch? - I see patches already present in git, what prevents from releasing them?
    What is correct documentation regarding using drbd 8.x in PVE5?

    Thank you in advance for answers, I will completely understand, if you will answer:

    We do not support DRBD, the 8.4 modules are in the kernel as normal.

    It is on the road map.

    Its planned and released when its ready. See Roadmap

    DRBD8 is not integrated in the current Proxmox VE storage model and therefore there are no docs for this. But yes, some used it with success on older 3.x setups, accepting the shortcomings and with manual configs. These setups can now migrated to 5.x, as the DRBD8 kernel module is still available.

    DRBD9 integration is maintained by an external storage plugin, maintained by the DRBD creator/vendor. But as far as I know they did not yet provide this plugin and kernel module for Proxmox VE 5.x series.
    If you want DRBD9, contact the maintainer.

    Thank you, will wait in next releases, hope, it will come in one of 5.x (in roadmap there is no "target version", that's why I was asking it).

    Thank you for answer, does this mean, that https://pve.proxmox.com/wiki/DRBD is still relevant?
    Because on the top of page I see:

    [solved issue]
    I updated and I'm currently using
    `Virtual Environment 5.0-23/af4267bf`
    and I can see beta label at left top side of proxmox webpage

    Am I still using beta or just mislabeling?

    Not really, this article is for 3.x and no one here is testing these old and unsupported releases (or checking outdated docs.)

    To be exact it seems to be the time until the ssh command is executed, so ~12 seconds.

    Kind Regards

    Thanks for pointing that out.
    For some reason, when I read "Storage Replication", I was thinking Disaster Recovery (DR).

    Regarding ceph upgrade notes, it's only matters if I use ceph on proxmox node, isn't it?
    If I use own ceph cluster on separate nodes (11.2 "kraken") I can upgrade to 5 without problems, right?
