Create ZFS in Proxmox
ZFS is in Proxmox GUI is meh. You can't add more content other than Disk Images and Containers? What about my ISO? This guide will show how to add all content via everyone's best friend, the Terminal.
- At least 2 or more disk
- Wipe the disk (Either in fdisk or Proxmox)
Wiping the disk
via Proxmox GUI
Go to the Proxmox webpage and wipe the disk. The option is under your node -> Disks. I will be setting up Mirror raid level for "/dev/sdc" and "/dev/sdd".
If the command line is your way, you can run the command below. Make sure to replace the device id with yours.
# dd if=/dev/zero of=/dev/sdc bs=512 count=1
"zpool create" command will create a new ZFS pool to create more ZFS dataset.
example: zpool create tank raidz sda sdb sdc sdd sde sdf command i run: # zpool create local-zfs mirror sdc sdd
By default, after you create your zpool, it will be mounted in the "/" directory.
Mounting to Proxmox
Go to the Proxmox web UI and add a new Directory.
Now I test the new Directory by uploading a new ISO.
Checking ZFS Health Status
Proxmox UI will automatically detects the ZFS and insert it in the ZFS page.
