  2. [SOLVED] Questions about upgrading PVE 5 to 7

    I have an old PVE 5 installation running on Debian 9 - what would be the safest way to upgrade? Should I first upgrade Debian 9 to 10 and then to 11 and then PVE 5 to PVE 7 or is there danger there? Any thoughts please?

    for some reason, after a reboot and dpkg --configure -a followed by apt --fix-broken install all is good.
  4. [SOLVED] dpkg hanging when upgrading PVE kernel

    For some reason, it ends like 3h ago? ls -al /root/.bash* -rw------- 1 root root 11177 Aug 25 09:19 /root/.bash_history but you are on the right track, I'm on a weak connection and I have either copy / pasted something wrong or when reverse searching the bash history with CTRL+R selected...

  7. [SOLVED] dpkg hanging when upgrading PVE kernel

    any hints? I'm kinda stumped on how to fix this. I did an apt-get update followed by apt-get dist-upgrade which kept hanging so I pressed CTRL+C When running apt-get dist-upgrade again I got E: dpkg was interrupted, you must manually run 'dpkg --configure -a' to correct the problem. but this...
  8. Intermittent backup problems, need some hints on how to debug

    nothing special. PX is on a VPS from a German provider, PBS is on a KVM from a US provider. tried mtr - no issues found. tried iperf3 between the two and TCP is ok, plenty of lost packets when using udp hence I switched back from using the wireguard VPN solution to plain simply connecting to the...
  9. Intermittent backup problems, need some hints on how to debug

    talking about ressources there is almost no noticable usage. I am analyzing both server's stats with netdata and I see no peak during the benchmarks. at all. they are idle. checked the logs and didn't find much on both. on the target (PBS) I see a few failed benchmarks which say "broken pipe"...

  13. Intermittent backup problems, need some hints on how to debug

    hi there, 1 Proxmox server and 1 PBS with different providers. Both servers are up to date. Backups worked fine through tailscale (wireguard based VPN) then went from taking on average 10 minutes to 5-8 hours with similar backup sizes. Switched back to connecting to PBS via public IP, same...
  14. Disable ZFS ARC or limiting it

    What exactly do you mean by "on the same line"? Something like this? options zfs zfs_arc_min=4294967296 zfs_arc_max=8589934592
  15. [SOLVED] How to let logrotate handle PBS log?

    ah, I see, that seems to be the case, thanks for pointing it out. I guess eventually the old ones will be deleted. I was just wondering since auth.log seems to go back till the 3rd of February ls -al /var/log/proxmox-backup/api/ total 20205 drwxr-xr-x 2 backup backup 18 Apr 12 00:00 ...

  17. [SOLVED] How to let logrotate handle PBS log?

    The log directory seems to be getting out of hand so I was wondering if anyone could share his logrotate config? /var/log# du -cksh proxmox-backup/* 20M proxmox-backup/api 7.0M proxmox-backup/tasks 27M total
  18. [SOLVED] Backup failed with an error I am unsure about

    ###edit### all this fiddling around didn't help. I will now delete all backups via PBS GUI, remove the storage from PVE and start from scratch.
  19. [SOLVED] Backup failed with an error I am unsure about

    ok, that was the problem. /etc/pve/priv/storage/STORAGEID.enc contains a fingerprint of the PBS /etc/pve/storage.cfg contains BOTH encyption-key AND fingerprint. Encryption-key is NOT as expected the STORAGEID but rather the fingerprint contained in the encryption-key. This is all very...
