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

    Probably each of the backups may had this message, but just noticed it . Since the meaning of sparse is something which is here and there it felt like the backup doesn t consistency or something
  2. 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...
  3. [SOLVED] Save some from frustration if you cant access GUI or PVE has no connection at all

    hm.....nope. But first I need to check what happens if I manage to make the port active fist. @Dunuin .... well I did make it Active and nothing happened but I found that the problem is probably the 10gb card itself even it lights up when you plug a cable in. So many months I assumed all the...
  4. [SOLVED] Save some from frustration if you cant access GUI or PVE has no connection at all

    ...which is exactly as I set it up, meaning even though the real 10gbe card has 2 ports, i need only the one configures so I have setup a static (of course without gateway). By the way I ve set up MTU 9000 on the port. From the NAS side I ve configured a static to the corresponding 10gb port...
  5. [SOLVED] Save some from frustration if you cant access GUI or PVE has no connection at all

    Thank you for the time and answers Perfectly understandable. Probably so many times in conversations someone could just pop up and say this instead of it is tricky. Try and see...etc Even though on my system I have a setup like you said, meaning x3 vmbrs (each one based one a bond which in...
  6. [SOLVED] Save some from frustration if you cant access GUI or PVE has no connection at all

    By that you mean -> set it on nics omly and bonds or vmbrs will use that value or set it on all of them? Sorry but your answer was very phrasal and lost the meaning. Normally you don t means I could be able to use-configure just the nic and don t use at all. Afterwards go to cli ping nas...
  7. [SOLVED] Save some from frustration if you cant access GUI or PVE has no connection at all

    That might seem more reasonable explanation. Because it makes sense first the hardware to be initialized and afterwards the software services like vmbr (if you can call it a service protocol or whatever that might be). i haven t tried with auto, only on vmbrs . I still have that line at bonds...
  8. [SOLVED] Save some from frustration if you cant access GUI or PVE has no connection at all

    Nice for the clarification of the abbreviation. So you are saying that it should be playing with the line auto enp7s0 (without deleting it or put a has #) Then do you have an explanation of why it doesn t? PS Each bond i have based on 2 ports is configured as LACP (802.3ad). Of course the same...
  9. 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...
  10. [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...
  11. local time for RTC option when VM acts as NTP itself

    ...... after a dozen of tries I think I figure it out. Proxmox parameter needs to be set to off and at the same time inside the WinServ vm needs to alter the value of a registry word. You can add it (instead of searching your way into it among clicks) from powershell and the command reg add...
  12. 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...
  13. VM storage conf for 3rd time

    Three lines from the results indicate you have absolutely right. The pool upon which zvols are being created for each VM hasn t that attribute while the specific VM's Zvol has it. Probably this is why on the new server I can t get the volblocksize because I don t have any VMs yet created...
  14. VM storage conf for 3rd time

    Default is 8k as I noticed. By the way which command would give me the that 8 from cli. tried zpool get volblocksize pool_name and zfs get volblocksize pool_name. Since that pool will be used by VMs so the correct command would be something with zpool get what? in order to see that 8k from...
  15. 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...
  16. Passing a Physical Drive through to a VM in ProxMox

    ... sounds reasonable. Don t know if that is the case though. Not an expert
  17. 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...
  18. How to manipulate the extra raw storage of a VM

    Did it!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! My way, but did it!!!!! Here follows an example as I would like it to be read from me by someone else's answer Node 1: Make a backup of the VM with the extra storage and locate it at /var/lib/vz/dump/...vzdump-qemu-103-2022_03_16-01_06_43.vma.zst Copy/move this...
  19. How to manipulate the extra raw storage of a VM

    ... probably, but it seems weird since the snapshot is self is part of the storage and depends on that. So when you move only the snapshot to another place, that other place doesn t include the origin of the snapshot just the snapshot. Its like you move only the links to another place and the...
  20. How to manipulate the extra raw storage of a VM

    Depends. Are you talking what happens in GUI or inside the .conf file? Because in GUI nothing happens and nothing ever will :) In .conf it automatically adds the line unused0: local-zfs:vm-102-disk-2. Basically what I ve answered to @Dunuin <<<Only one line inside the VM s .conf file...
