Unsecure Live Migration

Apr 8, 2018

first I want to say "Thanks" for for Proxmox PVE software!
Also we did upgrade our 4-Node cluster from version 6.4 to 8 without any problems.
Its well documented and also the pveXtoX tools for checking servers before the upgrade process are very helpful.

my reason to write this post is that I want to increase the speed for migrating the VMs from one to another mode.
So is it to recommend to disable the secure transmission mode in a private network to increase the transport speed?

if I want to use the insecure method, what do I need to get this configured?
Is it enough to edit on each node the /etc/pve/datacenter.cfg file and change the migration / type property to "insecure" ?
Is there anything more to do?
