Question on NAS setup on proxmox


New Member

Hi folks,

I'm a newbie and I got a server configured to have a 2TB RAID0 for system itself and 10TB RAID5 for other purposes under a hardware raid controller. I want to use a proportion of that 10TB as a NAS VM/container running on PVE. But I'm not sure how I can do this. It's strongly discouraged to use ZFS on top of hw-controlled raid so I can't use pve itself to manage the storage and bind the zfs dataset to the containers. And I don't think it's possible to pass through only a proportion of the 10TB disk to the NAS VM. Is there any way out? Thank you so much in advance!
