I like to add, though not explicitly asked. While it is technically
possible, the cluster will lose its enterprise support. As Ceph is under
support on Proxmox VE nodes too.

Better split out Ceph to a separate cluster and use the Proxmox VE nodes
as clients. To keep the Ceph client and cluster package versions close
together, you could use Proxmox VE without subscription for the separate
Ceph cluster.
