I use a PBS server for that kind of thing. You can do a backup of all the running VMs to the PBS server, down one of the VMs, and do a live restore of it on the new PVE server, total downtime is about a minute as the VM boots at the start of the live restore.
The other day I had a drive problem, so I restored the VM from a 2 day old PBS backup onto another server, before I did that, I took a snapshot of /var/mail using proxmox-backup-client. When I tried to restore /var/mail it complained the files already exist and wouldn't proceed. Is there a way...
FreeBSD 11.4-RELESE VMs don't seem to be honoring the powerdown signals, they stop all the processes and site there. I wonder if that's why they wont backup to PBS? They will vzdump ok. In fact they won't even backup to PBS even in stop mode, the error message from:
qmp command 'cont' failed -...
Update, ran out of ideas, so I rebooted the PVE 7.0 server and the VM is able to do backups to both PBS servers again.
I has rebooted the VM several times just in case something apt updated needed it.
So in the end it was the PVE 7.0 server reboot that cleared the problem.
I have a Proxmox 7.0-10 server that has 3 VMs running on it, 2 are FreeBSD the other is Debian 11 running mostly email.
All 3 VMs were recently moved across from a 6.4.9 server to the new 7.0 server whilst the were shutdown, using ftp for the HD raw image and the .conf files, all 3 are running...
I am interested in using the new BTRFS option in the Proxmox 7 installer, on a single SSD. The installer wants me to choose a RAID level, however RAID is not something I plan to use, it's the other BTRFS features that caught my interest. Which RAID level should I choose for a single SSD setup?
Is it possible to move a USB external drive, which is currently used for a PBS datastore, from one PBS server to another? Nothing has been encrypted, it's just the PBS it is currently attached to has to be relocated to another site, so I am spinning up a fresh PBS on other hardware hoping to...
I am a new PBS user, I have feature request to help people like me.
The datastore -> content window would be useful to also display the VM Names along side the VM group number just like it shows in brackets when using PVE. I struggle to remember the function of each VM by number alone, and rely...
Thanks, that seemed to work.
A recap of the steps involved for anyone interested.
I created the /etc/pmg/templates directory as the docs said to.
Copied /var/lib/pmg/templates/main.cf.in to it
Edited main.cf.in as follows
Nowadays there are over 1,500 TLDs, I would be lucky if 50 of them were the source of legetimate emails we receive, so how do I block 1,500 TLDs I don't wish receive spam from?
In sendmail I just add a single line for each TLD or domain into /etc/mail/access and make a hash db from it.
That link you posted describes a FreeBSD 10.1 bug, and it says the bug doesn't happen with 9.3-RELEASE. You have got me curious now, I am going to try some of the other FreeBSD installers to see which ones crash on Proxmox 6.2.4 and which work. I can update my FreeBSD 9.3-RELEASE system, but...
I moved a FreeBSD 9.3-RELEASE vm across from a Proxmox 6.1.5 server to a fresh 6.2.4 server, just using local drive (xfs) storage for the VM and it seg faults just after the FreeBSD kernel loads on 6.2.4.
It's just the FreeBSD amd64 GENERIC kernel.
that seems to show the correct size.

I set up a glusterfs test on two identical Proxmox servers to try and learn a bit about it.
On both servers I created a 200GB xfs formatted partition /dev/sda4 mounted on /storage and created/started the glusterfs volume also called storage.
I added the storage volume using the Proxmox GUI...
I wouldn't jump into the Spectre, microcode patch. Intel are saying it's buggy and caused reboots.
