  1. Meaning of <<INFO: backup is sparse:>> during VM backup

    Hi i d like to know what is the meaning of ......... INFO: backup is sparse: 54.26 GiB (49%) total zero data, even though it seems to finish successfully . .... and the rest of the message INFO: transferred 109.00 GiB in 731 seconds (152.7 MiB/s) INFO: archive file size: 39.43GB INFO...
  2. KVM: SMP vm created on host with unstable TSC; guest TSC will not be reliable

    Hi As the title clearly states, I noticed that message when I started a Vm with qm start command and noticed that at syslog (probably it is going on for a while or since the start of the VM creation). Searching for this error, doesn t really help a lot. To me it seems like an...
  3. [SOLVED] Save some from frustration if you cant access GUI or PVE has no connection at all

    Hi Happened me before a year, happened again yesterday after an update which was correlated to pve update. At least the first time it happened I had a pop up message if I would like to update or keep the /etc/network/interfaces file. Now without warning or anything updated, I reboot the...
  4. local time for RTC option when VM acts as NTP itself

    Hi I am trying to figure out what to do about the local time for RTC option for a Vm (WinServ2019) which acts as an NTP and syncs time from an external source. To my understanding, letting option as default, so enabled, makes VM thinks its bios clock is Proxmox's clock, right? Should I...
  5. VM storage conf for 3rd time

    Multiple times I have configured proxmox from scratch and storage is my weak spot. I am always trying to set the best possible options for the use case scenario, still finding myself weak at determining which these best options are, for storage. Once more, the disks used are 512 native...
  6. Passing a Physical Drive through to a VM in ProxMox

    I will be as quick as possible, since the question tends to be specific to one option of the command. As the titles states, in an effort to pass through a usb-hdd to a VM I did the following from cli First identified the usb disk Id with ls -n /dev/disk/by-id/ Afterwards, passed that disk to...
  7. How to manipulate the extra raw storage of a VM

    Hi I am struggling finding a way (at least the most proper / valid one) on how to move the raw disk space of a VM (after detaching it) to another VM (on the same or different server) My installation is based on zfs. I Installed two Win10 VMs and I gave the first one (VM id 102) a second...
  8. Passing through Hdds with qm set command

    Hi I ve seen a different way to pass disks to a VM when an hba card is out of a question for some reason. You find the id (disk-by-id) of the drive (which doesn t change like sda sdb...etc) and you pass it through to the VM with the command qm set id_of _the_vm -iscsi(0,1,2,3....n)...
  9. Is this a right way to shrink a .raw secondary disk attached to a VM?

    Hi Before posting this I ve read all 10 posts about shrinking disks but none of them seemed to be the <<<correct>>> officially approved way, so I thought to give it one more try. Backend info: PVE is installed in a mirror zfs and the VM is a win 10 test machine installed on the local-zfs...
  10. Proxmox UPS and Power Loss

    Hi Has someone deployed a configuration where during power loss and when the batteries level are critical-low / below a certain percentage, UPS informs proxmox and proxmox shuts down all VMs gracefully? Does the way goes UPS->Server (idrac / ilo) ->proxmox? Thank you
  11. 10Gbe car/ports needs configuration?

    Hi Noticed today that by default after installation of prox, if you go to node->Network you can see all port's active status as Yes (nothing unusual here). Since though the network card of the server has 4 ports (2 of which are 1gbe and the other 2 are 10gbe), the 1gbe ports have active...
  12. ZFS Raid 10 mirror and stripe or the opposite

    Hi In a zfs raid 10 of lets say 8 drives, which is the default way of proxmox configuring the drives assuming the process is done from gui? Mirror vdevs then stripe them or the opposite Method 1 like 2disks in mirror vdev1 / 2disks in mirror vdev2 / These 2 disks stripped in vdev3...
  13. proxmox management interface matters?

    Hi I d like to ask about a use case scenario that I am into. Proxmox will be installed on a server with extra 10g card apart from a quad intel i350 (4x1g ports). What I want to accomplish is have a quick net path between Proxmox and a Nas server in order for Vm backups to be transferred...
  14. Drive sectors for Prox OS matter?

    Hello I need to set up 2 servers for Virtualization in a production environment, so as I always do, ordered 2 ssd's for a zfs mirror installation. This time I ordered datacenter type ssds and specifically the below ones (I could have gone with others too but the budget and availability...
  15. Flooding message with worker

    Hi I have noticed in one of the node's syslog the message proxyN pveproxy[281281]: worker exit proxyN pveproxy[2775]: worker 281281 finished proxyN pveproxy[2775]: starting 1 worker(s) proxyN pveproxy[2775]: worker 297145 started proxyN pvedaemon[283507]: <root@pam> successful auth for user...
  16. Weird messaged during booting VM with passed-through hba controller

    I tried to be as explanative to the title. Possible problem is with the hba adapter (LSI SAS 2008) i am trying to passthrough to a TrueNas Scale VM. - Checked passthrough requirements in bios (VT-X VT-d) - set in /etc/kernel/cmdline (I use uefi boot) the extra parameters...
  17. Snapshot proxmox installation itself

    Hi Is there a way to snapshot or backup the installation in order to have a way to revert back if something happens from updates? The installation is on a mirror zfs in uefi mode in case that matters. Thank you in advance PS By backup I dont mean to take an image of the disk containing...
  18. Benefits of using uefi intallation for prox instead of bios

    Hi Even though until now all the prox installations have been done in uefi mode I am not really sure what is the benefit of that. On the contrary needs more work when you have set prox in mirror zfs mode and also needs to alter different paths during passthrough configuration for instance...
  19. Backup Prox OS upon mirror zfs installation

    Hi Since I still havent found a more convenient-easy (at least for me) way to backup the OS which resides on a mirror zfs 2 ssd disk configuration , I thought to post my way and possibly have a feedback for an additional way that would be possible for my configuration. (Please don t mention...
