perhaps a different approach might help me, can anyone point me to good write up on adding an additional disk on a harvester node. The official documentation is not even accurate for multi disk management ( and that is even before I should be able to specify a new storage class in settings where the parameters of existing storage classes do not appear, nor does that tab/iframe/element have any fields in creating a new storage class. I'm thinking some adventurous community member's tutorial or blog post might help.

Is there a reason you want it as an additional disk and can’t just use something like raid0 to combine the storage?

my little Intel NUC has no RAID card.
I have another nvme in there that I had previously dedicated to swap space for esxi and their associated VM's swap virtual disks, that way I could overprovision memory by using something almost as close to the speed of RAM. I'm running into disk pressure issues having everything running on the one nvme, so was considering a separate one for certain workloads.
once I start creating VM's with rancher to simulate my GKE hosting and then add minio, things start to get wonky with the many layers involved.
It's going to be AWESOME when you guys fully integrate harvester and rancher as opposed to me having to run kubernetes on kubernetes. I'm loving what Rancher Labs has collectively accomplished and hope that with SUSE $$$ you guys can pull this off. It makes sense... just needs some polishing.

Hi @bright-fireman-42144, Is your question that creating a VM with another NVME disk? If yes, I thought you need to do two things. 1. Add extra disk to harvester node 2. Create new storageclass Then, you could create VM on the above disk (storageclass) I am working on the Harvester 1.1 documentation for multidisk management still shows screenshots for disks instead of storage . Hope that would help you to add disk easy. Then, you could check for how to create new storageclass. If you have any question about adding extra disk, feel free to replay on this thread and ping me. Thanks!
Hi @bright-fireman-42144, The multi-disk management is updated on the latest doc. You could follow this page to complete adding an extra disk. If there is still something that makes you confused, feel free to let me know. Thanks!
