  1. Multiple unclustered hosts

    I have (currently) two unclustered hosts running PVE 2.3-13. Is it possible to manage them both from the same browser window under the same Datacenter heading or do I need to have two separate browser windows open, one for each host? NBD, just curious... Garth
  2. Two Node Cluster

    I just converted two UBS 12.04 KVM hosts to PVE 2.1 with latest patches. All was going well until I created a two-node cluster (no HA configured) and then the NFS shares went inactive on the first node in the cluster. I didn't have to add NFS to the second node. They just showed up there when it...
  3. Coming back to PVE (maybe)

    Got it! I had to move the existing files under the right subdirs in each store. Now all is working. I'm back! :-) Garth
  4. Coming back to PVE (maybe)

    Greetings, it's been awhile. I currently run two UBS Precise KVM servers with both using a NFS server for stores, including QCOW2 images and various ISO files. Among others, there is a W2k3 VM running virtio drivers for disk and network. I've been reading the wiki about moving from KVM back to...
  5. Add LVM Storage

    I'm going to start from scratch and do it again. I did everything in that doc but it didn't show up as available in the ADD Storage pulldown until I just happened to look at it again. I added it as a directory and it worked but that's not what I want to end up with. Thanx for the responses, Garth
  6. Add LVM Storage

    I have a new Dell 710 with two RAID stacks. The first is mirrored 300GB spindles that PVE installs on which has the vg name of "pve". The second is a 5TB RAID5 stack split into two 2TB and one 1TB partitions. These three partitions are then grouped with LVM into a single vg of 5TB called...
  7. KVM Limits

    Let me rephrase to a more reasonable question. What I am looking for are real-world experiences of running Windows VMs on kvm; how many, how big, how busy. Do you overcommit memory? CPUs? Disk space? I intend to do some serious testing but some initial advice would be welcome. Thanx, Garth
  8. KVM Limits

    All, I work for a company that develops and sells Windows-based software. I currently run an ESXi v4 box that is a dual quad-core Xeon with 32GB and a few TBs of DAS. It is currently running a collection of Windows Server 2003 and 2008, both 32 and 64 bit, a large number of XP VMs, and a fair...
  9. KVM or OpenVZ

    I kind of figured that was the case but wasn't sure. Thanx, Garth
  10. KVM or OpenVZ

    Is there ever a time when KVM is preferred over OpenVZ when either is an option? Just curious... Garth
  11. Sockets and Cores

    Sounds good. Thanx, Garth
  12. Sockets and Cores

    Running 1.5 24 and I see the option to select Sockets and Cores when building a KVM VM. I have a dual Quad Core box so would it be better to select two sockets with one core each or one socket with two cores? This would be for Ubuntu 8.04 server. Thanx, Garth
  13. Create VM in Different Store

    When I try to create a new VM, be it VZ or KVM, I don't see any place in the setup screen that allows me to select the store I wish to use. Have I missed something in the docs and, if so, can you point me in the right direction? Thanx, Garth
  14. Remove migrated locked deleted KVM VM

    What I'm doing is messing around where I shouldn't be. :-) That said, after migrating a linux KVM, it wouldn't start stating that it was locked(migration) even tho the migration completed with good results and the VM only showed up on the box it was migrated to. So then I physically deleted the...
  15. Remove migrated locked deleted KVM VM

    Newly built 1.5 18 clustered with older 1.3 box. Migrated Linux KVM and all seemed to go well. VM wouldn't start with locked message in logs. Restarted but no help. Searched forum and wiki but no clear answer. VM was not absolutely necessary so I physically deleted it and rebooted. VM still...
  16. 2 TB Limit

    I just rebuilt my main server with 1.5 18 and tried to add a 2.4 TB LVM datastore. Prob is it states that there is only 2 TB available space. Do I need to ensure that all partitions are less than 2 TB? Also, if I only use KVM should I upgrade to the 32 kernel? Thanx, Garth
  17. Recommended Install

    Sounds good. That's what I'll do. Thanx, Garth
  18. Recommended Install

    There will be at least one Windows Server 2003 and one Windows XP. The rest will be Linux servers, typically Debian or a derivative distro like Ubuntu. Thanx, Garth
  19. Recommended Install

    Do I need to use the latest KVM Drivers disk with 1.5 or is it already included? Is virtio still a good choice for the network? Thanx, Garth
  20. Recommended Install

    I'll take your advice. 1.5 it is. Thanx, Garth Up to now, I have only used KVM and it still does everything I need. Including KSM would only seem to make it better. Is the 2.6.32 version a test version or is it considered stable? Thanx, Garth
