[PVE-User] RBD Storage from 6.1 to 3.4 (or 4.4)

If you can afford the downtime of the VMS you might be able to migrate the disk images using "rbd export | ncat" and "ncat | rbd
import".

I haven't tried this with such a great difference of versions but from Proxmox 5.4 to 6.1 this worked without a problem.

Regards,
