hello,
i'm new to proxmox ve.
2 node in cluster 5.3-8 version (soon i'll add a third node). I have add some local drive (1 for each node) and add storage (zfs) from datacenter/storage. Storage seems to work fine on his node but is not accessible from the other node.
Code:
pvesh get /cluster/resources
reports that storage involved status is: unknow ... and on the gui the icon of the storage have a question mark.
Code:
pvecm status
reports:

You need to use a shared storage if you want to access it from multiple nodes in a cluster.
Check the following link to see which storage type is a shared one:
https://pve.proxmox.com/pve-docs/pve-admin-guide.html#_storage_types

You can however restrict a storage to a node via datacenter settings, this way you can get rid of the ones with the question mark when they a not available on a specific node.

Ok. zfs local storage can not be shared.

How ?
Thank you.
 
Datacenter->Storage-> choose the one you want to edit-> in the newly opened window check the nodes drop down and check the nodes where you want it to be displayed
