Sorry, I do not think I understand your reasoning/plan. Please clarify. > Is it fine? If the question is: "I have a HC hosted-engine+gluster on 3 hosts + another host. I want to move the hosted-engine (on one of the hosts? not clear) to external iscsi storage. Will the new engine be able to access the gluster storage on the existing hosts?" Then, sadly, I don't know. I *think* it will work - that gluster does not need the engine to function - but never tried this. > What pitfalls can I except in this case? Many, if you ask me - mainly, because it's a flow probably hardly anyone ever tried, and it definitely goes out of the set of assumptions built into the basic design. I strongly suggest to test first on a test env (can be on nested-kvm VMs, no need for physical hosts) and to have good backups. But in theory, I can't think of any concrete point.
