ZFS replication and snippets


New Member

Is it possible to create a storage that can store snippets on a zfs pool and replicate it across the nodes? It seems the zfs pool storage type only accepts content types of disk image and container.

What is the recommended way of sharing cloud init configs across cluster nodes?
If those files are small you could simply put them into /etc/pve as that folder is used by PVE for exactly this purpose.

Disclaimer: I have no insight to the technical implications and side effects. But for me it just works :)
