    Proxmox VE Seems to have added this fairly recently I had a Proxmox VE 5.2 node that I did a dist-upgrade -y on for a new install.

    I looked at an older Proxmox VE 5.2 machine and it was not there. Datacenter-> Node -> Disks and it now has various storage creation options. One of them is ZFS. You can create zpools directly via this GUI and monitor health status. Proxmox VE 5.2 ZFS Storage Screen.JPG

    I just did a fresh install off a 5.2 iso and I didn't see it.

    OMG upgrade and reboot and there it is! It even adds to Proxmox so you don't have to do that extra step

    Options for RAID level are:
    • Single Disk
    • Mirror
    • RAID10
    • RAIDZ
    • RAIDZ2
    • RAIDZ3
    This is GREAT. When did they add it?

    Yea. No destroy option, but they are going a good direction.

    I just looked at a Proxmox VE 5.2-5 machine that we added a few drives to. It did not have the ZFS/ LVM GUI.

    I just did the install and subscription as I am finding it easier than other platforms to learn on; since command line is not my best attribute.
    Also I noticed with my x9drd supermicro board bios update they added a ton of fixes and bifurcation, I mention this because it was for the microcode updates wondering if other had noticed this as well.

    Maybe they have fwupdate daemon on in the background
