I read that the Enterprise repo versions are sightly older than the community repo version to have more stable versions for subscription users. So it might be possible, that the Enterprise repo version hasn't the feature implemented I am asking for.
I would like to know if the Custom...
I have a TWO node cluster (NO HA!) with DRBD8 backed virtual disks.
Each virtual disk has its own DRBD8 instance and DRBD8 is running in single primary mode.
I wrote a Proxmox Storage Plugin to activate the DRBD8 volume and to make it primary only, when the VM is started.
Today I was...
I am benchmarking my setup and found, that the disk write performance in a VM is appr. 42% less than on the host.
I am using dd for testing. I know it is not ideal, but it should give an
estimation and a lot of others are using it, too.
I have a LSI RAID1 with a BBU configured in...
I try to use DRBD 8.4 with Proxmox 4.3. DRBD 8.4 lacks the Auto-Promote feature, so someone needs to do the primary setting. I don't want to use the primary-primary mode on my disks to be more secure.
I thought to use a script prior to starting a VM and after stopping it, which checks...
I am playing with Proxmox 4.3 and DRDB9.
I followed this guide, because it explains how to setup DRDB (8.x) on top of a physical disk (I don't want to use it on top of LVM). I did install "drbd-utils", because Proxmox 4.3 comes with DRDB9.
I was able to configure DRBD9 correctly and it is...
I have two test nodes (PVE 4.1/no subscription).
Both servers have only SSH access.
I am using two shell scripts to activate two ssh connections with port forwarding:
$ ssh -X -L 8007:localhost:8006 -L 3129:localhost:3128 email@example.com
$ ssh -X -L 8006:localhost:8006 -L...
I tried to clone a vm with the command line, by
qm clone 101 103 -name WebServerNew -format raw -full 1
but got "unable to parse volume ID '/dev/disk/by-id/scsi-SATA_WDC_WD40EFRX-68_WD-WCC4EHJF6HLX-part1'"
This partition is a raw mapping into my virtual machine:
First I installed my system with the Bare-metal ISO Installer. I decided to go for a system without LVM (LVM is not really required) and so I installed the system according to this.
First of all, there is something missing in the description of "Install Proxmox VE on Debian Wheezy".
First I did an install via USB with the Bare-metal ISO Installer.
When I used the shutdown button or the poweroff command, the system didn't properly shut down.
In both cases I saw the "Will now halt." message, but nothing else happened.
Then I did a second install with a Debian Wheezy...
Hi, I would like to test Proxmox VE to get rid of ESXi.
So I decided to add a new disk to my ESXi host and use it for a Proxmox test installation for performance tests.
The new disks are on an LSI RAID controller. I created 3 volumes. One for the Proxmox system another for the virtual machine...
