Hi Andreas,

Thank you for your answer.

It's possible to use the "Move Disk" function, one node at a time?

Thank you again

Since the SSDs are smaller than the HDDs, you can't do that in-place,
which would be the smoothest method.

You can install a second DRBD storage using the SSDs, and use Proxmox'
"Move Disk" function for each VM's disk.
