  1. Feature Request: advanced restore options in GUI

    What I'm missing are more advanced options when restoring backups: 1.) a way to set the target storage for each individual virtual disk Right now you can only choose a single target storage and all virtual disks will be restored to that storage. But often my VMs got virtual disks on different...
  2. Feature request: volblocksize per zvol

    What I'm really missing is a option to set the volblocksize for single zvols. Now it isn't really possible to optimize the storage performance even if ZFS itself would totally allow that. Lets say I got this scenario: ZFS Pool: ashift=12, two SSDs in a mirror VM: 1st zvol is storing the ext4...
  3. [SOLVED] Schedule-Problem nun mit PVE 7.2 lösbar?

    Moin, Jetzt wo auch die PVE Backup Jobs mit PVE7.2 die vollen neuen Scheduler Features nutzen können (was ja vorher nur PBS konnte) wollte ich mal fragen, ob sich mein Backup Problem damit lösen lässt. Problem: Ich möchte jeden Tag genau ein automatisches Backup haben. 6 Tage die Woche (Mo-Sa)...
  4. "Too many redirections (599)"

    I sometimes see this message when opening the summary of a VM or summary of a storage: Google just finds 4 hits for "Too many redirections (599)" and none is explaining why that is happening or if/how it could be fixed. And especially opening a storage summary can be quite slow (it needs 5 to...
  5. Why can't sync tasks keep the protected flag?

    Hi, Just read this in the documentation: https://pbs.proxmox.com/docs/managing-remotes.html Is that technically not possible or just not wanted? Because I'm thinking how to make my PBS redundant and this would be a problem. Right now I'm doing once per day from Monday to Saturday a daily...
  6. Cluster and Backup setup questions

    Hi, Right now my Homelab looks like this: Server A: - bare metal Debian with PVE 7.1 ontop - runs 24/7 - local ZFS storage for VM/LXC disks backed up to PBS on server B - I backup the system disks to my PBS VM on server B by booting into a Debian USB stick that then uses the...
  7. PBS-client grub and just backing up partitions

    Hi, Right now I'm backing up my main PVE node by booting into a Debian USB stick thats got a bash script that uses the proxmox-backup-client to create a blocklevel backup of my complete two 100GB mirrored system SSDs. This works fine so far as the SDDs are small and don't store guests. But now...
  8. Someone running OPNsense 22.1 inside a VM?

    Hi, Did someone else upgraded a OPNsense VM from 21.7.8 to 22.1? After upgrading to 22.1 I can't shutdown the VM anymore because the VM gets stuck with 100% CPU utilization and I need to hard "Stop" that VM. Console then looks like this until I forcefully Stop it: VM Config is this: agent: 0...
  9. Backup partitions and bootloaders using PBS client

    Hi, Right now, if I want to backup by first PVE nodes system disks I boot into a debian and use the PBS client to create a blocklevel backup of the complete mirrored 100GB system disks. Thats fine as the disks are small and guests are stored on other disks. But I'm planning to switch my two...
  10. Using qemu agent to run code inside VM?

    Hi, I want to monitor a VMs RAM usage from the host so I can dynamically adjust the "minimum RAM" by script so ballooning won't remove more RAM than the guest got free or available and caching isn't wasting that much RAM. My idea was to run free -b inside the guest and monitor total RAM and...
  11. [SOLVED] Smart-Steckdose für Homeautomatisierung?

    Moin, Ist jetzt kein direktes Proxmox Problem aber ich dachte ich frage da trotzdem mal hier nach Erfahrungen, da ja hier so viele Leute PVE für ihre Heimautomatisierung nutzen. Ich würde gerne den Stromverbrauch meiner PVE-Server überwachen (gerade 400€ Stromnachzahlung eingetrudelt und...
  12. [SOLVED] Happy new year!

    Happy new year everyone! May you not be forced to restore your backups this year or atleast only willingly to upgrade your servers with some nice new hardware. :) I wanted to use this opportunity to thank the Proxmox staff members for the great work last year. Last year I've upgraded my PVE...
  13. discard inside LXCs?

    Hi, Just tried a fstrim -a as root inside my LXC with this result: fstrim: /: FITRIM ioctl failed: Operation not permitted So looks like doing a TRIM inside a unprivileged LXC isn't working. So do I need to setup discard/fstrim at all inside my LXC guestx or will PVE do a fstrim for all LXCs...
  14. Backup swap disks?

    Hi, I purged most of my backups and I now I was thinking about excluding my linux swap and windows cache virtual disks from the backups so that this often changing (so not deduplicatable) but unimportant data doesn't fill up my PBS datastore. Especially because I plan to store more backups for...
  15. What happens to a HBA when not PCI passthroughed?

    Hi, My homelab is running out of ressources and instead of buying a forth server I was thinking about merging stuff down to 2 servers. Electricity in Germany is way too expensive :( Right now I got 1x bare metal PVE + 2x bare metal TrueNAS servers. And I would need another PVE server to be...
  16. Backupgrößen-Unterschiede "snapshot" vs "stop"

    Moin, Ich bin mit PVE 7.1 von einem täglichem "stop" Backup zu einem wöchentlichem "stop" Backup am Sonntag + täglichem "snapshot" Backup an Mo-Sa gewechselt. Was mir da jetzt erst einmal auffällt ist, dass da die täglichen "stop" Backups immer nur den datastore um 3GB haben anwachsen lassen...
  17. Different backup retentions

    Hi, So how are the new backup retentions working? Until now the documentation recommended to set retentions PBS for the datastore and not using retentions through the PVE WebUI Backup tasks. I updated my PBS from 2.0.13 to 2.0.14 but I can't see that anything changed except for that new...
  18. root not able to chmod all folder after chaning user-remapping of unprivileged LXC

    Hi, I wanted to install UrBackup inside a unprivileged LXC and this UrBackup LXC should store the backups on a NFS share on my TrueNAS server. On my TrueNAS server I created a dataset mounted at /mnt/HDDpool/UrBackup", created a user/group "urbackup" (UID/GID 1130) and set this user/group...
  19. Inhalt von zvol in andere zvol kopieren

    Moin, Ist jetzt kein spezifisches Proxmox Problem, eher ZFS im allgemeinen, aber ich dachte ich frage mal trotzdem hier. Ich habe da ein zvols welche ohne native ZFS Verschlüsselung auf einer verschlüsselten Festplatte liegen und volblocksizes von 16K oder 64K haben. KVM nutzt teils 512B und...
  20. Meine Erfahrungen beim PVE 6 zu 7 Upgrade

    Moin, Ich hatte da einige Probleme beim Upgrade von PVE6 auf PVE7 die sich scheinbar lösen ließen, daher dachte ich mir ich teile die mal hier, falls jemand die gleichen Probleme hat: 1.) Grub konnte nicht auf die Systemplatten geschrieben werden Wichtig wäre hier wohl zu nennen, dass da mein...
