this host already contains virtual guests (rant)

I tried to add my second host to a cluster, and guess what, I cant.
Are you really aware of the time this will take for 500GB+ of hosts?

I started this journey because Proxmox works with all the hardware I have, It just does not work with the intelligence of a common human.

This is a rant, I know, so I'm going to go to sleep, and hope that this product will get better.
My hopes is not getting high though, after meeting the "You cannot connect to a readonly NFS share unless you already have some folders there" error.
The fix is easy and works in all situations not just proxmox. First you get sleep and then you write emails/posts/rants. If you dont follow that sequence then even your rants dont make any sense. Just a stream of consciousness.
have a good night - tomorrow is a new day.
