What's the compatibility like here. If one node creates a v2 image,
can a host which only knows v1 still use that v2 image for booting

Only very old clients won't be able to open v2 images when they only support v1.

Ceph is however a fast moving project where almost all users are on the most recent versions of Ceph due to new features and bug fixes.
