  1. [Feature Request] Backup comments?

    Can we get the ability to add comments to a backup we create? I'd really like it if I could add something like "Before installing game server files" or whatever. Even if the backup gets deleted in backup cycling, that can be super handy. Please? :)
  2. Daily backup tasks spike Linux RAM cache, never gets freed up, pushes into swap

    I have 3x Proxmox VE nodes in a cluster, and the issue I'm about describe has been problematic for me for years now. I've been trying to find the "proper" solution to this problem, but alas, I find more criticism for the method I use than real solutions. A few years ago I learned about the...
  3. ZombieLand / RIDL / Fallout (CVE-2018-12126, CVE-2018-12130, CVE-2018-12127, CVE-2019-11091)

    Hey so ZombieLoad was announced today : https://www.zdnet.com/article/patch-status-for-the-new-mds-attacks-against-intel-cpus/ No, I'm talking about the new speculative CVEs, not the movie. What's the response from Proxmox devs as to when we can see patches for this?
  4. Former Cluster, just disappears

    I'm not sure when this happened, but recently when I check the "Cluster" section of my Datacentre, it says there's no cluster. Except, it has been a cluster for over 5 years now, currently with 5x nodes. The whole cluster is 5.3-11, and I have been maintaining and upgrading it since about 2.3...
  5. Open vSwitch - InfiniBand

    Can I use Open vSwitch to interface Virtual Machines with an InfiniBand network for the purpose of having the Virtual Machines talk between each other (on same/different cluster nodes) over the InfiniBand network? And/or other purposes too?
  6. [Feature Add] Timestamps in backups

    Hi Folks, One of my nodes fell on its face last night, and I am uncertain why exactly. But that's not what this is about. I was looking at the backup log, and it looks like it happened during then, as quorum was lost and the backups were unable to make the changes to old backup stuff as...
  7. Upgraded to 5.0, nodes seem to want to SWAP more

    Recently upgraded from 4.4 to 5.0-23/af4267bf, and now my nodes are putting more into SWAP than before, even though they're at about 50% RAM usage on each node. This is really annoying as this can lead to higher IO latency, and I periodically flush my SWAP back to RAM in times like this. Sure...
  8. SNMP indexing shifts on reboot (libreNMS)

    Hi Folks, This is an issue I've been having for months, and I am not entirely sure where the cause is, but it might be proxmox. I've been having it since 4.3, and it happened in 4.4, and is now happening in 5.0. I use LibreNMS to monitor many things, including a bunch of proxmox nodes, via...
  9. CVE-2017-7494?

    Hi Folks, I'm asking about this : https://arstechnica.com/security/2017/05/a-wormable-code-execution-bug-has-lurked-in-samba-for-7-years-patch-now/ I just saw that an update is available as of this writing, for samba stuff, are these updates to address this CVE? Or is that a WIP? Thanks,
  10. ZFS on proxmox could be better

    Hi Folks, First, I think ZFS being in proxmox now for a while is awesome. I love ZFS and really think it's one of the best filesystems out there. That being said, I've recently seen some important shortcomings with it's implementation in proxmox, and I really hope my concerns can get addressed...
  11. Can't change forum avatar

    When I click on my avatar in my profile it says I don't have the necessary permissions to view this, and I'm pretty sure that's how I'm supposed to change my avatar. Please send help.
  12. qemu-guest-agent documentation improvement

    Hi Folks! I'm just actually checking out the qemu-guest-agent for Linux stuff, and I noticed a few areas of the documentation that would benefit from clarity. I'm referring to : https://pve.proxmox.com/wiki/Qemu-guest-agent My thoughts: The page should mention the VM needs to be turned off...
  13. VM Import/Export feature

    I would really like to see Proxmox with VM Import/Export features. It would be nice to have support for various different VM packages so I can export product VMs to my clients, or import VM packages between other environments I work with. Also when making a new VM it would be nice to have the...
  14. [Bug] Starting VM in Datacenter webgui, still thinks it's off (kinda)

    This is a small GUI bug, and so far I've seen it happen in the Datacenter scope, but I'm not sure if it happens elsewhere. I right click on a VM that's off. It turns on, and works, just like one would expect. I stay in this scope, don't reload page, or whatever. The VM is on, but I right click...
  15. Multichannel SMB/NFS?

    Hi Folks, I suspect the devs might be able to better answer this, but here goes. What's the current state of Multichannel support for SMB/NFS in Proxmox VE? SMB 4.4 added an experimental version of SMB multichannel, but people have been reporting a good amount of success. NFS 4.1 added...
  16. [feature request] Check boxes for migration of VMs

    Hi Devs, I know that I can individually migrate VMs, and also select "migrate all VMs", but I would like a granular middle ground. There are VMs I don't want to migrate off hosts (such as offline ones), and stuff like that. What I was hoping was a way I can check a list of VMs I want to...
  17. FreeNAS/FreeBSD hot-plugging of disks not working

    Hi Folks, DISCLAIMER: THIS IS FOR LAB TESTING, NOT FOR PRODUCTION, PLEASE LEAVE YOUR PITCHFORKS AT HOME. Okay, so I'm trying to run a FreeNAS VM here to test all kinds of configuration scenarios, including disaster scenarios of course. This is FreeNAS 9.10, latest version as of this writing...
  18. Migration problems when updating, quick tip

    So one of the clusters I work with has been in operations for going on 3 years now. It's a 2-node that was recently expanded to 4-node, but the added 2 nodes are for lab work. The first 2 nodes have a 2 votes each, so nodes 3 and 4 can be turned off when lab work is not being done. Now, in the...
  19. [Feature request] streamline acquisition of public ISOs, such as VirtIO

    Hi Folks, This is directed at the proxmox devs. I went to check out the github repo, and wasn't sure which was an appropriate place to stick this, so I'm posting on the forums for now. I think it would be nice if we could have a streamlined way to download to our ISO storage common public...
  20. Cluster, quorum, and backups

    Hi Folks, Long time Proxmox user and supporter (I help on IRC where I can). One of the clusters I work with, has been 2 nodes for years now. Recently 2 more nodes were added to the cluster, but with the intent of being temporary "lab" space. As such, these nodes were powered down out of hours...
