Hello Aaron,

nice to see EC pools are coming. ;)

AFAICR, there is an undocumented location for a ceph.conf,
`/etc/pve/priv/ceph/<storage-name>.conf`.

The config should have the following content.
```
[client.admin_ec]
rbd default data pool = ceph_pool_ec
````
Then rbd will use the data pool. This should probably work for all storage operations.

Newer ceph versions should also work with the config db option.
```
ceph config set client.xxx rbd_default_data_pool ceph_pool_ec
```

Cheers,
Alwin
