  2. Copy vm backups from datasource to another (similar to sync)

    I wish to preserve a backups from various datasources (at least 2) into a new datasource with a much longer data retention time, the only thing I can seem to do is to a sync between datasources, but that will bring in data from all vm's, I just need a specific vm to be synced over with a longer...
  3. [SOLVED] MergerFS, can't mount a new disk

  7. ISCSI - MergerFS - multiple pools on hosts

    I've been digging around for a SAN. ISCSI seems okay - the 1GbE (or x4) is acceptable for media streaming under 4K. I am utilising MergerFS to group several disks into one pool, but looking at a high availability disk shelf, I was wondering if anyone new if it might be possible to add the ISCSI...
  8. [SOLVED] zapped disk- not unused

    I ran sgdisk --zap-all /dev/sdb vgdisplay/lvdisplay shows nothing about the disk. The storage entry loads no size info- I removed it from storage as well. I can't seem to remove the disk from Proxmox.
  9. PBS - VE can't start backups with TOTP/Two Step Auth

    I've added two step auth and PVE can't start backups with error error fetching datastores - 401 Unauthorized. I don't really want to add a new user just for backups... I'd need to change owner for all backups, etc. Am I missing anything to make it painless to have TOTP and have VE just use...
  10. [SOLVED] CFIS won't show any shares

    I have a Samba server that I have working on a cluster and Samba share VM. I have used this CFIS server many times, use it on the LAN, I know it works. However, for some strange reason, a Proxmox host suddenly had the CFIS offline which was working for several days. I restarted, removed and...
  11. [SOLVED] Spread backup over multiple datastores for faster disk restore/backup

    Is it possible to have backups (from a development point of view) to put backups of a VM in various datastores so different bits are stored on more than one disk, so when it comes to restoring, you're utilising more than one disk (which can be faster than reading from just one disk when...

  15. EFI - Restored Windows10 - can't change processor to HOST

    i had a difficult time testing a restore of a Windows computer of mine as a VM. I had to use IDE, EFI disk, use the right BIOS (ovmf). But, I can't get it to use HOST CPU, it just won't boot and I was wondering if anyone knew how I can get that working.
  16. [SOLVED] CFIS - can't move/create disk

    Similar to: https://forum.proxmox.com/threads/cant-use-nfs-share.53463/ I can add it as a network drive on Windows and create a file just fine - I can touch /path/filename on the node for the CFIS. But moving the disk to the CFIS gives create full clone of drive sata0...

  18. [SOLVED] Multiple backups parallel since 6.3 - hanging system

    Since around 6.3 newer updates, Proxmox has been running multiple backups, some on the same disk, not all, and I've had 3 at the same time - previously it did one at a time and didn't start new ones until the previous one completed. Today my system broke badly, I managed to stop the tasks but...
  19. iotop -o - identifying user

    I have some high IO usage from a VM, and iotop -o isn't so helpful with a generic userid that I can't translate into what VM it's coming from. I was hoping I could get some sort of filepath to the process which would lead me to the disk number (and of course the VM ID but no luck so far)...
  20. Veeam Backup in LXC's and VM's

    Has anyone here managed to get backups working in LXC's? And by backup, I don't mean just doing a filesystem backup. If not, I am not sure how good the path exclusion is, I have loads of mount points.
