    Pre-install questions Proxmox/CEPH

    Awesome. I don't see that stated in the docs, but now that you've made it clear I don't need to worry about that. :) Part of the goal with my move is to do away with a shared storage backend that I no longer trust. I think this probably gets me there, and will provide the peace of mind to...

    Pre-install questions Proxmox/CEPH

    Thanks, Alwin. After reading the thread where people document their Ceph performance, I'm not sure I'd be happy with that solution. I can see backups really slowing things down if I were to go that route. So, with storage replication: can it failover automatically? Searching shows some...

    Pre-install questions Proxmox/CEPH

    I ran a Proxmox cluster for a while a couple of years back and was reasonably happy running on ZFS as local storage for VMs, but wanted native support for Veeam so I moved to Hyper-V. I'm not nearly as happy with Hyper-V, and am at the point where I'll either install reinstall my VMs on bare...

    No quorum after removing cluster nodes

    I'm in the process of migrating from Proxmox to another virtualization platform because business needs require Veeam, and Veeam doesn't support Proxmox. To do this I've been pulling a node, configuring it using the other hypervisor, and pushing a restore of my VMs to the new hypervisor. I've...

    Migrate VMs from Proxmox --> Hyper-V?

    Yeah, but I didn't want to say that because it's cool. Though I'm happy I didn't need to be that involved. Or at least, not yet. ;) Proxmox occupies a very good niche, with great utility and a very reasonable price. I'm glad I learned it. Business needs change (and businesses change...

    Migrate VMs from Proxmox --> Hyper-V?

    Thanks, Thomas. My first trial run with a Centos 7 machine worked once I selected the recovery kernel. I haven't tried the Ubuntu machine yet - I may need to try your solution there. It's innovative though. I dig it. :D

    Migrate VMs from Proxmox --> Hyper-V?

    So my business focus has changed a bit, and now I'm selling backups and DR. Which means I'll be running Veeam, which means I need to switch my cluster to Hyper-V or VMWare in order to support the most useful functions that Veeam offers. Is there a solid tutorial on migrating to Hyper-V? Is it...

    Trying to mount an NFS share with username/password

    Thanks, folks. I've always done it on an IP basis in the past, but I'm using an existing QNAP machine now and the ip address permission system was really hard to find. Once I located that backups started to run. Thanks for all your help. :)

    Trying to mount an NFS share with username/password

    Thanks, Dominik. I tried it as v4 but that wasn't the cure, so I'll look into another form of sharing.

    Trying to mount an NFS share with username/password

    OK, let's try this a different way: Has anyone successfully mounted an NFS share that required a username/password?

    Trying to mount an NFS share with username/password

    I'm missing something really simple here. I've got a network share that's password protected. In /etc/pve/storage.cfg I changed the options line to state: options vers=3,username=myusername,password=mypassword (not my real username/password, of course.) When the backup task tries to...

    Optimizing proxmox

    As a related point, not directly related to your question, I saw this the other day: https://blogs.technet.microsoft.com/filecab/2016/11/18/dont-do-it-consumer-ssd/ I thought it was a solid breakdown on performance issues between enterprise- and consumer-grade SSDs, and why you want the former...

    ZFS on Linux 0.7.7 Disappearing File Bug?

    This is actually the link I was looking for. No wonder I couldn't find it here.

    ZFS on Linux 0.7.7 Disappearing File Bug?

    There have been a couple of other threads about this, but I only saw one in a quick perusal of the forum. As I understand it, if you're using the enterprise repository you aren't affected.

    Looking for pointers on small business setup

    So, here's what he needs to know: RAID1 is a mirror. One drive fails and things keep on chugging. Two drives fail and you're screwed. RAID10 is a way to string lots of RAID1 mirrors together. You can get better speed this way, and recovering from one failed drive is faster than with the...

    Looking for pointers on small business setup

    If you dig around there are some recommendations, but I'd look at Samsung SM863 drives for an affordable cache disk. Size isn't all that important: basically ZFS is going to queue up disk writes and synch them all to disk every 5 seconds or so, and synchronous writes that happen between those 5...

    [SOLVED] ZFS 0.7.7

    I don't have any idea, but I'd assume so. I'm just monitoring to see how Proxmox wants us to react to this.
