  1. [SOLVED] BSOD: System thread exception not handled

    If you've installed the VirtIO-SCSI drivers, and your virtual machine is configured to use SCSI, the one issue I've noticed is that sometimes when you add SCSI to a VM in Proxmox, it adds an LSI controller, which Windows also doesn't have drivers for. This setting used to be under Options for...
  2. Download 5.3-1, get 5.3-5

    Okay, that explains most of what's going on. pve-manager and proxmox-ve have two different version numbers. pve-manager's version number is what is displayed in the web interface. Though I do get a different version of pve-manager than you do, but that could just be an update going through or...
  3. Download 5.3-1, get 5.3-5

    Size, SHA256, and CRC32 are the same as yours. When did you download your ISO, and does it install 5.3-1?
  4. Download 5.3-1, get 5.3-5

    I downloaded what I thought was going to be Proxmox 5.3-1, and after installation I got 5.3-5. I'm not used to this number incrementing until I've run through the update process. I just wondered if the Proxmox folks could verify the ISO on the website? This is the sha256sum of the...
  5. New to ZFS and Proxmox

    With ZFS storage, your virtual disks' cache will need to be set to writeback.
  6. How do YOU do Disaster Recovery ?

    Agree, host backups should be continuity scripts. We still put our OS on mirrored SSDs, just because it's a pain to have downtime to re-OS a system. But when you have to, it should be as fast as possible. For protecting data, we've got a couple of layers of redundancy, and then the backup...
  7. How can I mount a my VM ZFS dataset?

    Proxmox uses ZFS zvols when it creates virtual disks on ZFS storage. If you want to mount them inside of Proxmox, you can find them in /dev/mapper/poolname/zvolname. So you your instance you might do, mount /dev/mapper/poolZFS/vm-100-disk-1 /mnt/temp Make sure you turn off the VM first, of...
  8. Importing OVA assistance

    The way I've done this, granted has always been done with OVA files, is to just extract the VMDK from the OVA file. IIRC, the difference between OVA and OVF was whether or not compression was enabled? It's been a while since I rolled VMs in ESXi. tar xvf somefile.ova Once I have the VMDK file...
  9. ESXI Migration to Proxmox - Very odd issue

    Ah, yes, if you've got a bunch of VMs to do this with, manually resetting passwords isn't a good way to go about it. Proxmox can use VMDKs. Maybe it's worth using the unconverted VMDK file(s) in a Proxmox VM to see if the issue still occurs. If it doesn't, then there's something about the...
  10. ESXI Migration to Proxmox - Very odd issue

    Were there multiple disks associated with the VM originally? Is it possible /etc was on a secondary disk that isn't getting mounted in the new VM for some reason? It might be worth booting to a LiveCD ISO and mounting your virtual disks one by one to make sure that you can see all of your files...
  11. [SOLVED] Windows server 2019

    Try the latest VirtIO drivers and see if there are drivers for 2019. https://fedorapeople.org/groups/virt/virtio-win/direct-downloads/archive-virtio/virtio-win-0.1.160-1/
  12. use case evaluation for pfSense on Proxmox setup

    You may be out of luck entirely. IIRC, current versions of pfSense require AES-NI on the CPU. The E8400 doesn't have it. Virtual or physical, you may just want to junk that box.
  13. [SOLVED] ZFS snaphost as normal user: permission denied

    I'm not familiar with zrep, but I'm wondering if it was designed with a dedicated user in mind. Your delegation command looks good. Grab a snapshot by running, zfs list -t snapshot -r rpool/data/vm-207-disk-1 Then see if you can destroy the snapshot using your dedicated user. zfs destroy...
  14. How do I share physical drives to Freenas VM?

    It's not a requirement of ZFS unless you want to take full advantage of all of ZFS's features, like the ability to self-heal the data on the file system. Actually, I think you're more than likely correct. I mean, I think you're wrong to not only use a RAID controller with ZFS, but actually...
  15. Proxmox 5.0 Adding Tape Drive For Windows Backups

    I believe that's a USB tape drive, yes? It used to be that you needed to manually alter the VM configuration files to pass through USB devices. However, these days there is a USB Device option when adding hardware to a VM. Have you seen documentation on using this feature in the web interface...
  16. Slow speed on SSD ZFS pool

    I'm wondering if you're running into issues of the block sizes not lining up. But now that you've rebuilt your zpool, and set it to use 4k blocks, maybe you'll have a better time running the Unity builds. If they're not better, maybe go the other direction. Make Proxmox use 32k block sizes, and...
  17. Slow speed on SSD ZFS pool

    I'm not sure what HD Tune is measuring. Is it just straight streaming transfer speeds, or is that random IO? Or, more importantly, what is your workload, and what kind of IO does it rely on? Also, can you give us a screenshot of the Storage section in the Proxmox UI? I'm trying to figure out if...
  18. Homelab server setup

    As far as storage goes, I personally use all consumer grade disks for my own builds, and for my small business clients. Honestly, I don't even use any of the special Reds or Purples or Golds or whatevers. I haven't seen any tests that show these drives provide any additional performance, or...
  19. More information about replica's files

    The USED column tells you how much space the snapshot is taking up. The AVAIL column tells you how much space the snapshot has available to it. I think a - is displayed here because snapshots are immutable. The REFER column tells you how much space was used on the referenced dataset or zvol when...
  20. Help interprete ZFS stats (Grafana / Telegraf metrics)

    I've gotten a lot of the soft lockups, as well as just experiencing atrocious performance with RAIDz2. RAIDz2/RAID6 just isn't very good for performant small block operations. You might be able to skirt around the issue by having a couple of SSDs mirrored for ZIL and L2ARC. But ultimately I...
