[PVE-User] ZFS over iSCSI...

Good question. I'm also in process of setting up new production HA
cluster with iSCSI shared storage over 10Gbit network and I also thought
of ZFS of course with all it's features. One thing that bothers me is
that ZFS is known and designed to work well with direct access to the
drives, which is not about iSCSI of course..

Quick research did not bring anything useful. There's short page at
https://pve.proxmox.com/wiki/Storage:_ZFS_over_iSCSI, however it is very
general about such setup.

So I guess LVM on top of iSCSI is what I'm going to stick with for now
to setup new HA cluster with shared storage.
