Does it give a particular message?

When I mix sizes, I was sure it allows me, but uses the smaller size for them all?

But haven’t created on Proxmox

dont remember exactly but the words different drive sizes were part of it… i did a zfs with the 2 matching ssd’s… gonna ditch that setup now going back to try the 3 ssd’s as one zfs pool before i do kinda like to know what i can do…

isnt there an option to define the size when you are using zpool create?

check the man page

Wow, they really didn’t give much to go on… standard out should give more error info. Which doesn’t help, I guess.

Could give a try on the CLI, if that’s not too troublesome? I was really hoping there would be an output.

Although sometimes it just says add -f, which can just break stuff.

Like an error message /dev/sda is in use, use -f to force it, when really that drive is being used for the OS.

Sorry to not be any help, but the error they gave is terribly vague
