We're having some problems replacing a PVE node in a cluster. These are the steps we've taken so far:
Turn off pve03 (out of 3).
From pve01, remove pve03 from the cluster with: pvecm delnode pve03
Unrack the hardware.
Mount a new server to become the new pve03.
Perform clean install of...
I have an LXC container running on a Ceph pool. It's running just fine. It has a nightly backup set up to run. For the last week or so, the backup keeps on failing with:
vzdump 60180 --mailnotification always --mode snapshot --mailto firstname.lastname@example.org --quiet 1 --storage nas01-backup-7x...
I've installed PVE 4.0 beta and I ran 'pveam update' to get the latest LXC templates. I then proceeded to download the 'Ubuntu Trusty (standard) template, which downloaded just fine, showing up as 'ubuntu-14.04-standard_14.04-1_amd64.tar.gz'. However, when I launch an image based on this...
I have a need to maintain a VM in Proxmox as a template that gets shipped as a .qcow2 or .vmdk disk. However, before shipping it, I'd like to make it as small as possible. During installation of software inside the VM I download fairly large files, which then add a lot of "used" space in the...
I've got a few servers with:
vmbr0 - 2x 1G NICs bonded (OVS Bridge)
vmbr1 - 2x 10G NICs bonded (OVS Bridge)
In order to make it simpler for other people administrating and creating VMs I was looking for a way to indicate the vmbr/NIC speed in the name, like:
I have a small cluster that I've had running for a while. Because I now have a wildcard cert for one of my domains, I'd like to use that cert for my PVE cluster. Of course, the cert is not for the domain name configured for my cluster. So, I want to change the domain name, but not the host...
I'm a bit confused by the bridging setup. Here's my setup and what I'm trying to achieve:
Firewall with multiple WAN IPs, providing NAT to the VMs in the DMZ
DMZ (192.168.9.0/24) on eth0/vmbr0 connected to a dedicated switch directly off the firewall
On the http://pve.proxmox.com/wiki/Roadmap#Roadmap it says that "More storage plugins on the GUI" will arrive or are being worked on. Can the Proxmox team share some more details of what is being considered?
I was wondering if anyone has tried to use Swift for Proxmox backups? I have a Swift cluster and a Proxmox cluster. If possible, I would like to run my backups to Swift's object storage instead of using more expensive block storage, which is better utilized for my VMs anyway.
This may not be the right place for this question, but I figured I'll try anyway.
I've built an OpenSUSE image that I want to use as a base image with the intention of "cloning" it over and over. Obviously, I want to regenerate the SSH config and recreate new keys for security reasons.
I've recently started using Salt (SaltStack.org), an amazing remote execution management app. I can see almost unlimited ways of using Salt and was curious if:
anyone has been using it with Proxmox, and if so, in which capacity;
the Proxmox devs have looked into it; and if
[SOLVED] SNMPD on Proxmox 2.0
I tried to install SNMPD on my new Proxmox 2.0 box but I get a message saying "No candidate version found for snmpd." Does anyone have any ideas on how to get SNMPD so that it's possible to monitor the node.
I had a "close call" today in my small, but important to me, testing Proxmox cluster and just wanted to post the outcome as a testament to Proxmox, Linux and a bunch of the open source technologies behind the scenes. So, here we go:
Earlier this evening I had a sudden power outage. Since I have...
In previous 2.0 releases I was successful in mounting a few NFS shares. However, recently, after running aptitude update && aptitude full-upgrade my NFS mount points don't work anymore. I tried to delete and re-add them, but it doesn't seem like it can read the NFS exports. It still works...
I created a VM through the 2.0 UI. Now, I'd like to remove/destroy it. In the summary tab in the UI the "Remove" button is greyed out so I can't delete my VM. I tried to SSH to the box and run:
vzctl destroy 200
... but when I do that, all I get is a "Container config file does not exist"...
In the past I've relied on the RSS feed on the wiki to get timely information about new releases and general news. For some reason the RSS feed doesn't seem to work in most RSS readers anymore. I've tried it in Google Reader and on several RSS aggregators on both an iPhone and on...
I've done cluster upgrades quite a few times, but because it's not that often that I do it, I don't recall my exact steps. I looked at the wiki, but I couldn't find much in terms of procedures for upgrading a cluster. That said, I should probably document how I do it. But before I before I...
I lost Internet connection in two different VMs, one KVM and one OpenVZ, after an ISP outage. All other VMs appear to work fine. The DNS works in the two affected machines, but I can't ping out to any resource outside my local network. Any ideas would be greatly appreciated.
Thanks in advance!
I'm running 1.7 with 2.6.32 kernel in a 2 server cluster. I have one OpenVZ machine running and a few KVM ones. Ever since I upgraded to 1.7 I can't get the OpenVZ machine to shut down. All my KVM machines shut down just fine. In order to shut it down I have to force a reboot of my Proxmox...
