How to create a Proxmox cluster
You need to know how to SSH.
Need to know how to work in the Linux terminal.
Basic Linux knowledge.
A minimum of 2 servers (virtual or physical)
The servers must be connected to the same network.
NOTE: If you want to use High Availability, you need 3 servers.

- To create the cluster, type:
pvecm create VECluster01
You can replace the VECluster01 with the name you want for your cluster.

pvecm add pve1
instead of pve1 write the hostname, or the IP address of your other server that is already in the cluster.
You can check the cluster by typing:
