  1. Storage 'Buffer' does not exist

    Still don't know what the 'Buffer' error means and why the CT would not be removed with the referenced commands, however removing the /etc/pve/lxc conf file in CLI did the trick at destroying the container from GUI. cd /etc/pve/lxc ls rm <lxcid>.conf Hope this helps someone else.
  2. Storage 'Buffer' does not exist

    Attempting to remove (i.e. destroy) container in pve 6.4-13 and receive Error: storage 'Buffer' does not exist. Container not running and attempted the following at CLI: root@proxmox:~# pct unmount 204 root@proxmox:~# pct destroy 204 -force -destroy-unreferenced-disks -purge storage 'Buffer'...
  3. Snapshot won't delete

    What does qm listsnapshot <VM number> report for that VM? You said it's displayed in the web GUI, is it also listed in the CLI?
  4. Problem: Web GUI is inaccessible after mounting volumes

    I've gotten I/O errors from having a full volume. lvs and check that your data is not 100%
  5. Snapshot won't delete

    I ran into similar problem and discovered I was using the wrong name for snapshot. Try the following: lvs (list snapshots on VG designated as snap_*) qm listsnapshot <VM number> (will list the snapshot name after -> designation) qm delsnapshot <VM number> <snapshot name> The snapshot name...
  6. VM io-error, local-lvm out of memory

    @CAppa2 I feel your pain. Proxmox evidently doesn't have a safe guard to prevent LVM-thin volume from exceeding storage capacity and once this occurs, VM's are rendered inoperable with I/O errors. From experience, I would definitely NOT try lvresize command. In my case, doing so resulted in...
  7. [SOLVED] Resizing pve data

    So there is no way to decrease the LVM thin volume without erasing the entire database?
  8. EXT4-fs error (device dm-xx): ext4_mb_generate

    Anyone have suggestions for fixing the following error: EXT4-fs error (device dm-15): ext4_mb_generate_buddy:747: group 1, block bitmap and bg descriptor inconsistent: 2616 vs 613 free clusters after lvresize --size +1G --poolmetadatasize +16M <VG/LV> I was attempting to increase the LVM-thin...
  9. Removing Snapshots CLI

    @bbgeek17 Thank you for the suggestion. The code entered returned error: -bash: awk{print $1}: command not found. However, using your code I was able to tease out the correct means to removing snapshot from CLI: lvs (list snapshots on VG designated as snap_*) qm listsnapshot <VM number> (will...
  10. Removing Snapshots CLI

    For anyone who urgently needs space and can sacrifice a VM in order to free LVM-thin space and thus regain functionality, you can use the following command to permanently remove a sacrificial VM: lvs remove <vm name> lvs will show LV data with <100% and should function once more. *Do NOT try...
  11. Removing Snapshots CLI

    Proxmox stopped working secondary to LVM full storage. LVS command shows data 100% and several files labeled snap_vm... I would like to delete these snapshots so that I can restore functionality for the VM's, which currently will not load secondary to full storage. I attempted: qm...
  12. Unable to Edit fstab: [ Error reading lock file /etc/.fstab.swp: Not enough data read ]

    @bbgeek17 THANKS!!! Your article is spot on. I deleted the fstab.swp file and can now edit etc/fstab. If anyone else finds this chat, you can also follow these steps as outlined in 1. Navigate to your Project folder: cd /etc 2...
  13. Unable to Edit fstab: [ Error reading lock file /etc/.fstab.swp: Not enough data read ]

    @bbgeek17 Thank you for the reply. There is plenty of storage space on all drives, but you bring up a good point... There was an episode previously where syslog file overfilled the boot SSD with errors from an USB device. I deleted the syslog file, removed the device and all was forgotten. I...
  14. Unable to Edit fstab: [ Error reading lock file /etc/.fstab.swp: Not enough data read ]

    Any attempt to edit the /etc/fstab file in Proxmox VE 6.4-13 with nano results in [ Error reading lock file /etc/.fstab.swp: Not enough data read ]. The file is empty and will not save any changes. Please see following file status information: cat etc/fstab # <file system> <mount point>...
