  1. Could not access KVM kernel module: No such file or directory

    I just ran into this on one of my boxes. It had been in production for years, and suddenly stopped working after upgrading to the latest proxmox. Turns out the CPU battery died and apparently the BIOS reset at some point during rebooting and disabled the Intel VT extensions.
  2. Proxmox Updates are Downloading Slow

    Same issues. Getting ~21 kB/s. Traceroute from Washington state ends up in Germany. Are there 'closer' servers?
  3. Windows Update Breaks VM

    Odd. Maybe you should just stop posting on forums. In fact, maybe Proxmox will just delete this forum since no one is paying for it. No one is demanding free support. We are posting about issues we've run into, hoping someone who is more knowledgeable can point us in the right direction or...
  4. Windows Update Breaks VM

    Since some of us here don't know the intimate details of everything from the Linux Kernel, to virtualization, to BIOS, etc...we're mostly hoping that someone with a bit more knowledge can point us in the right direction or give us troubleshooting tips. As a counter-argument though: If you're...
  5. Windows Update Breaks VM

    I'm not blaming Proxmox. I'm saying it appears to only *occur* when running as a VM under Proxmox. It doesn't occur on any of the physical workstations. It doesn't occur on the vSphere servers we manage. It doesn't occur under hyper-v. It only occurs running under Proxmox (qemu/kvm/whatever)...
  6. Windows Update Breaks VM

    We are running in to the same issues. We host a handful of Linux and Windows VMs for clients. Linux, and Windows Server 2012 have no issues. Specifically Windows 7 and Windows 2008 will randomly decide not to boot (going into System Recovery) after installing Windows Updates. I've tested with...
  7. Migration to new 2.2 nodes fails

    I had three Proxmox 2.x servers. I don't recall the exact version, just that they were NOT the latest. These servers worked well--specifically we were able to migrate virtual machines between them. Yesterday we added two new servers to the cluster. We did so by updating the software on the...
  8. 'pveam update' not updating appliance list

    I just popped open /usr/bin/pveam and noticed it logs info to /var/log/pveam.log. It looks like it is updating successfully: Nov 27 21:13:47 starting update [GNUPG:] IMPORT_OK 0 9ABD7E02AD243AD3C2FBBCCCB0C1CC225CAC72FE [GNUPG:] IMPORT_RES 1 0 0 0 1 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 [GNUPG:] IMPORT_OK 0...

    Yes, I have connectivity and am able to do an apt-get update && apt-get dist-upgrade. -A
  10. 'pveam update' not updating appliance list

    I found several threads where people are getting HTTP404's when trying to download templates. The solution was to run 'pveam update' from the command line. I am unable to download the ticket tracker for a client due to a 404 error, so I ran 'pveam update'. The command took about a second to...
  11. Troubleshooting bizarre 'wrong console' issue

    I've run into a strange issue using Proxmox 2.x where it displays the wrong VNC console. root@kvm1:~# pveversion pve-manager/2.1/f32f3f46 root@kvm1:~# Two weeks ago I had this problem and I figured I had just messed something up. I ended up stopping all my virtual machines and rebooting the...
  12. mode failure - unable to detect lvm volume group

    I stand corrected. I dredged up old logs from my problem site from a month ago--the VMs are suspending. I find it funny that a 24/7 outfit that has its servers regularly suspending for several hours at a time hasn't made a peep...
  13. mode failure - unable to detect lvm volume group

    It's working at 3 different sites right now--just not the one I apt-get dist-upgraded.
