Currently I have my Proxmox installed in a (let's call it) host_A, and I need to migrate the whole installation (VMs, CTs and ZFS data storage) to another host (let's call it) host_B.
Host_B is another computer, with his own motherboard, CPU, memory and disks.
After this migration, host_A...
I installed Proxmox on a corporate environment in order to use it exclusively for managing containers (our VMs are already managed by VMWare...).
The network is working, but I realize that my containers stop to respond to external pings for long periods of time, but not when I'm pinging...
I forgot to say that this a home server. I don't use a switch with those capabilities, but instead a simple router (Netgear Nighthawk AC1900/R7000), running xwrt-Vortex as firmware.
Is there anything else that I can do with these hardwares?
My Proxmox server is running on a Supermicro X11SSL-CF motherboard. It has 3 ethernet interfaces: 1 for IPMI and 2 regular ethernet interfaces for general use.
I have just one network/subnet (192.168.0.0/24), and I'm using only one NIC.
Is there some use for this second interface? And if...
In my despair to restore the system I didn't take notes of the step by step in a detailed way. And even if I had took, they would not be accurate, because some commands failed in a first attempt but worked after the fourth or fifth tentative after I done three or four changes (and I...

I was using proxmox normally until i did a reboot and after that the installation seems completely broken.
The first sympton was the pve-manager, that wasn't listening on 8006 port. To summarize, that's the situation right now:
$ apt update

Are there any risks involved in using bind mounted folders in containers and sharing these same folders through samba?
After using a bare metal Ubuntu for more than 6 years, I decided to use Proxmox and containers and I'm loving it. But, I realized recently that Plex...
Thanks for all replies.
I realized now that I can use Duplicati to make "local" backups. As it's already running in one of my containers, adding another "backup rule" will be trivial.
Although it's not a native Proxmox solution, it will work for my needs.
Yes, USB device is not safe, but is better than nothing, at least for now, before I can upload 15TB of data to Backblaze B2 at 10Mbps. Maybe it will be ready before the sun become a red giant...
Another option would be attach the enclosure to another Proxmox node in order to use the Replication...
This won't be a one time job, because my intention is to keep both storages in sync. The VMs/Containers are already being backed up through the Backup resource in the GUI.
Previously, before started to use Proxmox, I used lsyncd on an Ubuntu 16.04 LTS for the task, and it worked fine.
My Proxmox installation has a ZFS raidz2 storage. Plugged in the host, via USB 3.0, there are a Mediasonic Probox with 4 more disks.
What's the best (or the correct) way to backup some or all the ZFS data to these disks in the enclosure, using Proxmox native resources?
Thanks for reply.
Yes, I'm getting to this conclusion too.
Sometimes I think that Proxmox is overkill for what I need, but at the same time I like the "containerisation/compartimentation" that it provides. It's very nice to separate things so them don't mess with each other.
