I am testing the new version of PVE together with ceph and I am having some problems.

These are my steps:

1. Burn 5.4 release 1 iso with Etcher
2. Install on SSD (USB) with ext4
3. Disable enterprise repo, enable no-sub repo, run dist-upgrade
4. Run wipefs -a on all ceph drives
5. install ceph-luminous from GUI
6. set public ip to be ip of pve node and CIDR 16, first ceph monitor is pve node
7. create OSDs for 4 drives, bluestore and no separate journal
8. Create pool "rbd" , size 3, min size 2, crush rule "replicated", pg=16, add storage=yes
9. download CT template ubuntu 18.04
10. create CT 8 GB drive on rbd
ERR - unable to create drive >> TASK ERROR: unable to create CT 200 - error with cfs lock 'storage-rbd': rbd error: got lock timeout - aborting command

11. deleted the pool and created a new pool with 128 pgs
12. tried to create a new ct - failed as the node timed out trying to list content of the local storage
12. tried to delete the CT - failed, tried to reboot in gui - failed, tried to shutdown in gui - failed, used virtual console to press ctrl-alt-delete - node rebooted
13. deleted the CT
14. created a new ct on the new rbd
ERR - same error >> TASK ERROR: unable to create CT 100 - error with cfs lock 'storage-rbd': rbd error: got lock timeout - aborting command

15. Open storage rbd - content - communication failure
