  1. [7.1][OVH][NETPLAN]No network into LXC containers

    Using the OLA (Which I believe might be similar for Scale... I wish I had a client willing to pay for a proxmox cluster with scale server) I use OpenVSwitch with the LACP bond to get a bridge setup. That set, I'm only connecting the OLA/OpenVSwitch bridges to the VRack. On the Internet/Public...
  2. [SOLVED] ProxMox OpenVPN cannot connect

    Simple, you need to firstly understand IPTables, and then to also know the whole datacentre firewalling stuff (which I ignore like a bad turd as I do those on a FortiGate-VM) as you need to also allow the correct INCOMING traffic to make the return traffic complete the connections - especially...
  3. AWS tape gateway? or something else?

    Well, for the deduplication to work, you need at least a backup as close to the current as possible, but the way I "simulate" the above, is to do frequent synchronizations, but then do a pruning of all the old ones I don't want on the remote. Also PBS will NOT sync previous old backups (ie, your...
  4. Is it Wise to Enable SR-IOV in my NICs for my Proxmox Use Cases?

    Q1: what is more important, testing/playing, or getting router/firewall up? Q2: do you need extra speed etc. to consider the SRV-IO etc.?
  5. AWS tape gateway? or something else?

    Using PBS in exactly this manner! actually 2 ways in my case 1 the local backup PBS (having the historical long term backups too) 2a DR DC (same provider) syncing from the local shorter term pruning 2b other side of the world on a different provider syncing also from the local, even more pruning...
  6. non-"threaded" listsnaphost view?

    I'll add `|egrep -i '[a-z]'` to remove the non-text lines ;) But yes, is an option, was just wondering about a less indented output of qm/pct given the "ascii art" I had to look at without the spaces in front
  7. non-"threaded" listsnaphost view?

    doing lots of snapshots (And yes, it would've shortened a recovery for me if there wasn't a problem with pmxcfs causing the snapshots to not happen over this past weekend), and a listsnapshot output starts to degrade after a couple of lines and then after some more totally goes un-bad-aligned...
  8. Multiple Pools per backup job ?

    Either I'm doing something less "designed" or I'm the only one needing/asking for it, but is there a simple way to have multiple pools, selected for backup in the same backup job? The problem I keep getting hit by, is that if I have multiple pools on the same hypervisor /PVE tryoing to do...
  9. Anybody with a delete Backup Group script ?

    FYI commandline option I'll be using for NOW: for i in vm/10119 ct/70011 ct/70012 vm/10301 vm/10300 vm/30406 do proxmox-backup-client snapshot list $i | grep Z |\ awk '{print "proxmox-backup-client forget "$2}' | sh -x done
  10. Anybody with a delete Backup Group script ?

    /me notes he must get a pbs api tool sooner rather than later ;)
  11. Anybody with a delete Backup Group script ?

    <Obligatory don't do this at home warnings> I've moved/copied backups between datastores for separating their retention/synchronisation rates, and now I need to delete quite a number of backups groups in the various datastores, and well... the GUI doesn't work wonders for my finger tips (touch...
  12. Systemctl status 'degraded' in unprivileged container

    ... I so wish systemd won't be as intrusive as clients complains about this exact issue
  13. Debian container boot failures after update to v7.0

    Yeah, other than a simple check for "degraded" then lits up my LXC dashboards like christmas trees
  14. Procedure for PBS system disk recovery? (intact datastores)

    Busy to get some documentation/preparations in place, and the question popped up: What is needed to recover a PBS server with intact datastores, but the rpool/root disk(s) failed got corrupted? (case in point a server with a single NVMe or two similar SSDs that fails together or other operator...
  15. Free Space Management

    Remember that PBS makes use (and assumes relatime set on the the filesystem and that noatime is NOT set) of the ATIME to "touch" the used/referenced chunks during the GC cycle, and then, goes and find all the chunks that have a ATIME of more than a day + 5minutes and only gets removed after...
  16. [SOLVED] Blinking Cursor after Upgrade or fresh install & reboot (Hetzner AX51 Server)

    I had a similar "challenge" on an old (circa 2013) SuperMicro with EFI (before UEFI I believe...) where both the PVE 7.1 and the PBS 2.1 installation ISOs (downloaded as at Wednesday 12 Jan22) somehow installed the GRUB too, instead of sticking to EFI... I eventually did a debug installation...
  17. PBS setup on server with 4 x HD - recommended ZFS setup option

    just note that 4way RAID1 (ie, 4 mirrored copies of the same data) is different from a 4disk RAID10 (ie. a stripe of 2x 2disk mirrors) The 4way RAID1 capable of surviving 3disk failures, while the 4 disk RAID10 is capable of surviving 2xdisk failures, just not the two making up a specific vdev...
  18. Planning new PBS - recomendations are welcome

    your are using 6x units, perhaps consider dRAID, though the "magical" better number is rather 7+ which then gives you that option of a hot sparet o replace the failed unit immediately and do the replacement the next available maintenance slot. I'd go then for a 5disk RAID-Z1 +1 host spare...
  19. ZFS Datastore - Fragmentation with SSD ?

    In the context of SSDs, all writes are "fragmented" by design by the storage controllers on/inside the NVMe/SSDs In the context of ZFS it's the ZFS that was not able to find a contiguous block of size Y and had to split it in smaller chunks (ashift size) and spread that all over the storage...
