[SOLVED] Replication with different target storage name

Hi All,

I've just upgraded to Proxmox 5.0 and I'm just getting to grips with some of the new features.
First of all I believe congratulations to the dev's are in order. The upgrade was seamless and I was able to get both my nodes upgraded in less than 30 minutes.

I'm currently trying out the replication but am struggling to get it going.
From what I can tell, it expects the target storage to have the same name as the source storage.

In my case, my primary node has ssd's in a pool named vmFlashPool and my secondary node has hdd's in a pool named vmSpinnyPool.

I also have this problem with live migration.

Is there a way to specify the name of the target storage?

If not, is this a feature that may be added in the future?

Yes, this is a planned feature, but currently not available.

Cheers dietmar.

Just checked out the roadmap:

  • live migration with local storage (qemu) to the gui
  • support for external fencing devices
  • qdevice (additional external vote, e.g. for 2-node clusters)
  • Cloudinit
  • Ceph improvements
Cant wait :)

Keep up the good work.

Me to: please, enable to specify the per-node storage where the replica should be done

Me too. Especially my (most important) VMs running on SSD storage should be replicated to another node with SSD storage. That's not possible right now. :-(

candidate here as well ;) Would be a good feature for added flexibility.

Add me to this list too. Would be great to replicate from local-zfs to for example nvme (other local zfs pool) target storage :)

Consider this another +1.

Can anybody from Proxmox comment on this request's status? The last update was 4 years ago saying that it was planned?

The lack of this feature is the reason that i cant propose proxmox in a production environment 24/7 .
