  1. VMs freezing and unreachable when backup server is slow

    From the file I read In fact, depending on the backup speed, VMs are not slowed down a bit: they are slowed down a lot, freezed or even crashed. On Windows machines, I receive the ESENT/508 error: svchost (1008) SoftwareUsageMetrics-Svc: A request to write to the file...
  2. blocking traffic in-between VMs

    The main firewall problem on the node seems resolved using this patch. Ref: EDIT: anyway, the vm/ct firewall still doesn't work
  3. blocking traffic in-between VMs

    I found this error in /var/log/syslog: /var/log# pve-firewall restart Dec 30 17:02:36 pve1 systemd[1]: Reloading Proxmox VE firewall. Dec 30 17:02:36 pve1 pve-firewall[2448715]: send HUP to 1278 Dec 30 17:02:36 pve1 pve-firewall[1278]: received signal HUP Dec 30 17:02:36 pve1...
  4. blocking traffic in-between VMs

    I'm looking again now to the firewall, and I see now that the firewall is completely open, not blocking anything for both the nodes and the VMs. Probably I was wrong when I created the post, or something changed. I tried restarting pve-firewall and dis/enable the firewall settings, without...
  5. blocking traffic in-between VMs

    Hi, I have a pve on Internet, I want to block any traffic between VMs, and allow them to go to Internet only. I enabled the firewall on datacenter, node and vm level. The node firewall works, I can only connect to it from my office public IP address, but the VM pve firewall doesn't DROP...
  6. nesting not working with newer kernels

    No, unfortunately I don't know that. I can bet that it's a 5.4, anyway. I'm using kernel pve-kernel 5.4 on Pve 7.1, without any problem so far.
  7. nesting not working with newer kernels

    Hi all, I just subscribed to a nested PVE VDS from Contabo. The first thing I did was upgrading to PVE 7.1, after that I imported some VM from my onprem server, just to see they don't start: linux vm starts with kernel supported virtualization = no, while Windows VMs get stuck at boot (blue...
  8. very poor performance with consumer SSD

    Thank you for your really good answer. I have a pair of customers' ceph clusters with enterprise ssd, and they work with no problems. As this is an internal/test cluster, I went with consumer SSD for economical reasons, but I have thrown on these too much time! The thing is, the SSD connected...
  9. very poor performance with consumer SSD

    I have a pair of HPE DL360 Gen8 dual Xeon, 64GB RAM, 2 hdd 10k sas for system (ZFS RAID1) and 4 consumer sata SSD They're for internal use, and show absymal performances. At first I had ceph on those SSD (with a third node), then I had to move everything to NAS temporarily. Now I...
  10. move cluster node configuration

    I have a cluster with P420 RAID controllers, and very bad performance with SSD. I know I can configure the controller in HBA mode, but then I will lose the system RAID1. I would like to switch to HBA mode, reinstall the system in ZFS raid1 and then move the configuration from the old...
  11. encrypted archives still coming through

    I just hit this problem too. I think, as a suggestion, that the "Block encrypted archives and documents" really blocks it, the Heuristic Score thing is not very intuitive. Thanks.
  12. ceph install broken on new node

    Do'h! I still didn't add the new nodes to the ceph network. I feel so stupid...
  13. ceph install broken on new node

    All nodes are reachable, and the cluster is ok: These are software versions, I did an apt upgrade of OLD3 yesterday: pveceph status in old nodes works, while on new nodes returns got timeout
  14. ceph install broken on new node

    I didn't read correctly, sorry. This is the first of the new servers: root@NEWSERVER1:~# ls -al /etc/ceph/ total 12 drwxr-xr-x 2 root root 4096 Jul 15 17:12 . drwxr-xr-x 92 root root 4096 Jul 15 22:31 .. lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 18 Jul 15 17:12 ceph.conf -> /etc/pve/ceph.conf -rw-r--r-- 1...
  15. ceph install broken on new node

    I added the second new node (it's the fifth), and used the pveceph install command. The result is the same, "Got Timeout (500)". The new nodes are a bit more updated, 5.4.15 against the 5.4.13 of the older ones, but there are no ceph packages to upgrade in those. Also, the new ones are...
