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...
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...
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...
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...
I have Windows 10 running in a KVM instance, & it's audio icon says there's no audio device installed. See screenshot .
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?
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?
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...
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...
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.
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.
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...
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...
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...
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...
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...
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...
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...
