Hello all,

i have a Question.

I search for the cli commands to create Resource Pools and add Groups/Users to this pool but i don't find it.

Thanks and best Regards
You can use the API with the pvesh tool to create a pool.

pvesh create /pools --poolid mypoolid --comment mycomment

You can then use pveum (see the section "Pools" in man pveum) to add permissions to this pool. Pools cannot be created with pveum yet. There is a feature request on our Bugzilla for this.
