  1. [SOLVED] EACCES: Permission Denied when backing up to PBS.

    Some more digging revealed that the proxmox-backup-daily-update.service creates the /var/log/proxmox-backup/tasks directory with root:root ownership if the directory doesn't exist. maybe this has already been fixed in newer PBS versions but here's how to reproduce in pbs 1.1.13-2: 1. Stop all...
  2. [SOLVED] EACCES: Permission Denied when backing up to PBS.

    After some digging i found out that the culprit was that the /var/log/proxmox-backup/tasks directory was owned by root:root in stead of backup:backup. Whenever you delete /var/log/proxmox-backup directory it is automatically created upon service restart. The api directory is correctly set to...
  3. [SOLVED] EACCES: Permission Denied when backing up to PBS.

    Hi All, I seem to have botched my installation of pbs and cannot seem to find the reason why. whenever i backup a vm it results in: INFO: starting new backup job: vzdump 100 --node stellar01 --remove 0 --mode snapshot --storage pbs INFO: Starting Backup of VM 100 (qemu) INFO: Backup started...
  4. Would a four/five node ZFS storage replication with HA cluster work?

    Hi All, I've setup many ZFS two node clusters in the past (technically 3 node using a small HA node) and CEPH clusters in the past but i'm thinking about the following idea: 4 main nodes and a small HA node 1. Create a cluster using all five nodes. 2. Setup ZFS storage replication between...
  5. Replication

    Would it be possible to combine both ZFS Storage Replication and pve-zsync for a single VM? For instance, we have a 'main' site with a 3-node ZFS cluster (2 full nodes and a small node for HA) using Storage Replication so we have High Availability for the VM Next i would like to have some...
  6. Proxmox VE 6.0 beta released!

    Thanks for the hints! It turned out i had /etc/systemd/system/systemd-udevd.service.d/override.conf configured only containing: [Service] ExecStartPost=/bin/sleep 15 Removing this file before the upgrade fixed the problem. I didn't expect this small change could potentially lead to a broken...
  7. Proxmox VE 6.0 beta released!

    I seem to be running into some major problems during upgrade. The udev and/or systemd crash upon restarting udev after upgrade: When the upgrade proces comes to udev: ----- Setting up udev (241-5) ... Configuration file '/etc/init.d/udev' ==> Modified (by you or by a script) since...
  8. What's about ceph luminous 12.2.7?

    +1 for this I am using EC pools with 12.2.5 so i'm fearing the worst but hopefully my workload didn't trigger any corruption.
  9. Ceph: Erasure coded pools planned?

    Well it's actually the other way around: To use erasure coded pools for RBD you need to create an RBD image on a replicated pool and specify a seperate data pool (which is erasure coded). This ensures all metadata to be written on the replicated pool and the actual data is written to the...
  10. Possible to detect guest hangs in HA using Qemu Agent?

    Hi, In a 3 node CEPH/Proxmox 4 HA Cluster, I recently had a Windows 7 Guest VM hang (BSOD). As expected HA never kicked in because in proxmox' point of view the VM is up and running. I thought maybe the QEMU Guest Agent would help checking for hung VM's but when I checked the wiki page it only...
  11. Weird ha-manager state

    Hi all, We have a 4 node proxmox 4.2 cluster. We cannot seem to get the HA manager in a healthy state. The config of HA looks empty (resources.cfg = empty and ha-manager config shows nothing). BUT the status shows different (same output on all 4 nodes): # ha-manager status -verbose quorum OK...
  12. [SOLVED] Installing on HP Proliant DL380 G5 Fails with grub error

    Thank you both for the replies. I managed to pinpoint the problem to the USB Controller and or firmware. I installed proxmox into a USB Harddisk of 256GB, I guess the HP's have a limit of some sort to be able to boot USB devices beyond a certain size (I've read 4GB will boot, but 8GB and 16GB...
  13. [SOLVED] Installing on HP Proliant DL380 G5 Fails with grub error

    Hi All, I'm trying to revive some old hardware to have some use. I was hoping to create a small test Proxmox 4.2 Ceph cluster with 4 HP Proliant DL380 G5 Servers. Installing Proxmox 4.2 finishes without errors HOWEVER booting fails (in fact loading grub fails) It says: error: unknown...
  14. CEPH is stopped before pve-manager during shutdown of node

    Sorry forgot the version info: # pveversion -v proxmox-ve: 4.1-39 (running kernel: 4.2.8-1-pve) pve-manager: 4.1-15 (running version: 4.1-15/8cd55b52) pve-kernel-4.2.8-1-pve: 4.2.8-39 lvm2: 2.02.116-pve2 corosync-pve: 2.3.5-2 libqb0: 1.0-1 pve-cluster: 4.0-33 qemu-server: 4.0-62 pve-firmware...
  15. CEPH is stopped before pve-manager during shutdown of node

    Hi all, When I shutdown a pve node (using the GUI, select the node and then select the shutdown button in the upper right) I noticed that one of the first services to actually stop is CEPH. CEPH is stopped before pve-manager for instance. When pve-manager is stopped, it tries to cleanly...
