Replication choose a storage !


Jul 27, 2018

It's seem that is not possible to choose a storage with the replication process, it's really a problem for me.

There is any plan to implement this function, or maybe I miss something ?


Why is this a problem for you?
For example, I have 2 server with RAID SSD + RAID HD, I would like to use SSD for live machine, and replicate on the opposite server on HD, I can trick this, by renaming storage, in the invert on one of the servers, but this case is a simple one, I would like to be able to choose where do the replication will be store on.

Other example, node1 with 1 storage 2To, and second with 2 storage of 1To, I would like to be able to choose on which one It will be replicate.
Well, If I have some free time to in near future, maybe, do you have a feature requests panel/service which list all new features needed/in progress ?

Possibly this is an option. Previously I used two 146GB disks in raid1 (not ZFS) for operating system created during the installation and then manually configured a ZFS partition in ZRAID using two 1TB disks and created the ZFS pool according to the documentation in Proxmox 5.1, then created a ZFS storage assigned to this pool for virtuals and for replication.
