  1. 3 Server DRBD

    I'm interested in building a PVE Cluster consisting of 2x boxes running DRBD plus a third in place as a failover. I would be using 3 PVE instances on OVH, plus shared NFS storage consisting of an AWS EC2 instance running 's3fs-fuse' exporting the S3 mount via NFS. I see there are instructions...
  2. Disk Passed Through to KVM Errors When Starting the KVM

    Hi, When I start my fileserver KVM VM from the console I see the following error: WARNING: Image format was not specified for '/dev/disk/by-id/ata-HGST_HTS721010A9E630_JG40006PG0EVED' and probing guessed raw. Automatically detecting the format is dangerous for raw images, write operations on...
  3. IP Address Passthrough to pfSense KVM

    Hi, Long ago, I had set up PVE to pass the external IP address through to a KVM firewall by doing something like the following: PVE's vmbr1 was on eth1 with a static address of 0.0.0.0. vmbr1 was eth0 on the KVM running the firewall distro. The firewall distro had its eth0 set to the external...
  4. How To Connect To KVMs With Just 1 Public IP Address (Kimsufi VPS)

    Hi, I have PVE4 installed on a Kimsufi VPS, & I have just the one IP address on vmbr0 with which to access the host. As such, I have my KVM set with NAT selected in the network interface, since there aren't any more addresses that can be assigned to it if I were to use a bridge. How do I need...
  5. How to Enable Audio on Windows KVM Guest

    Hi, I have Windows 10 running in a KVM instance, & it's audio icon says there's no audio device installed. See screenshot [1]. I'd like to be able to hear remote audio when connecting via RDP, but it doesn't work. How can I do that? Could someone help me please? Thanks, -J [1]...
  6. Storj dataserv-client

    Hi, I think it would be cool to have a Storj appliance to make it easy to allocate disk space to the project. https://github.com/Storj/dataserv-client
  7. Selecting SPICE console downloads a file rather than opening a console

    Hi, I run Sabayon 15 with Chrome as my default browser, & when I select a SPICE-based console, it downloads an extension-less file rather than opening a console. I installed spice-gtk 0.28, but the behavior persists. What do I have to do to get this working?
  8. Allocating All Available Memory to VMs

    Hi, My PVE box only has 8GB RAM, & I run 2 KVMs- one with 4GB, & the other with 3GB. I'm wondering if I can allocate 4GB to the one which currently only has 3GB, and still have enough for the underlying host processes to run unencumbered. I don't use ballooning, as it's been problematic in...
  9. How do snapshot backups work?

    Hi,When I do a snapshot backup of a KVM whose disk is on LVM, does it only backup the portion of the disk in its state at the point of when the snapshot starts? For example, if I start the backup before starting to compile an app, does it include all the partial disk writes that occur after I...
  10. PVE freezes during NFS backup

    Backup storage is FreeNAS zfs w/ highest compression & dedup on, in a Virtualbox sparse allocated default hdd. VM 100 is a firewall/gateway & it keeps dropping the internet connection, perhaps affecting the NFS share's availability (my guess- I dunno). PVE aptitude upgrade is current.
  11. Cheap Cloud iSCSI/NFS Service Provider?

    I'd like to add a 2TB RAW disk image via NFS or iSCSI for approximately $40/month US. Googling results come up with the cheapest I can find being $80/month at Softlayer: http://www.softlayer.com/file-storage I'm here to see if any PVE users know of a better option. Thanks, -J
  12. BOUNTY: Custom kernel config for PVE KVM's

    I've customized my linux-4.0.4 kernel for use with a KVM guest w/ virtio & VMWare display. The .conf is here: http://pastebin.com/JNdZ8VnN I'm posting it here in hopes that someone w/ more experience w/ configuring kernels could edit the .conf file as I have it configured such that it's more...
  13. [SOLVED] How to bond eth0.1 w/ vmbr5 to put a vlan on an internal-only bridge

    I want to give eth0.1 its own internal bridge so I can give a KVM guest eth1 to access eth0.1. What I tried already broke networking completely & I had to fix it w/ a Live CD- all that will remain unsaid... (I should've known it wouldn't work) I'd like to run my next idea past the community...
  14. Timeout when creating qcow on NFS storage

    I have an NFS share from a Windows box on my PVE box, currently with backups & iso's. Today I tried to add an export to add virtual disk functionality over NFS. I can create RAW disks fine, but if I try to create a .qcow, it times out each & every time, no matter what I do. The network isn't...
  15. Changing VM disks from 'default-no cache' to 'writeback' significantly reduces IOWait

    Hi, I discovered lately that changing all the VM disks to 'writeback' has decreased the IOWait by orders of magnatude. Just an FYI for everyone who might be dealing with IOWait. -J
  16. Feature Request: KSM Graph

    I just think it would be nice to be able to see how KSM is doing with a graph rather than watching a number.
  17. [SOLVED] Enabled TFA & got locked out

    Tonight I enabled TFA according to the instructions on the wiki, & got myself locked out. I was eventually able to utilize it properly by creating the user.cfg file as detailed at the bottom of the wiki article, & rebooting via ssh. Just wanted to document it here in case anyone else has the...
  18. How to create a TigerVNC auto-login shortcut in Windows

    Hi, I've followed the instructions on the Wiki to gain access to my VM via TigerVNC, & it works properly from Windows 7. Now I'd like to configure the client to automatically connect to the console when I launch it from a shortcut. First I tried saving the connection from the TigerVNC client...
  19. How to run a script on the PVE host when a VM is launched

    Hi, I have s3fs-fuse running on my PVE host, but it fails to mount when configured from a standard startup script in /etc/init.d because the host doesn't have internet access until a Multi-WAN gateway KVM launches & initializes. I'm looking for a way to script the mounting of the S3 bucket to...
  20. Cannot ping through NAT

    Hi, I can't ping either way (VM to PVE or PVE to VM) through a NAT'ed interface. I've tried setting its interface to 'NAT Mode' & 'Bridge Mode' (using the bridge with NAT enabled), and either way I can't ping through the NAT. But PVE can ping the internet. Here is my /etc/network/interfaces...
