hi guys , your responses were very useful.
Lets suppose  I have my 3 nodes running and forming a cluster.
Please confirm:
a -Can I add the ceph storage at any time ?
b- All nodes should be running the same pve version ?
c- All nodes should have 1 or more non used storages with no hardware raid
to be included in the ceph ?
Those storages (c) should be exactly same in capacity , speed , and so ...
What can goes wrong if dont have 10 but 1 gbps ports ?
