  13. Query: LXC Fails to start at boot / despite auto-start setting / starts fine by manual intervention after.

    Hi, I am curious if anyone has seen this sort of behaviour before? I have a proxmox host I setup a few months ago. Runs nicely, it seems. There was a hurricane/power outage this past weekend. Proxmox rebooted cleanly, and one of two VMs on the host auto-started correctly at boot. The one...

    Hi, I have a 'fun' question. I am trying to mount NFS export to a proxmox host. They are both in 'public' (OVH) hosting so I've setup firewall rules on the NFS server to restrict access to NFS server suitably / allow access only to this client /and restrict ports used to simplify firewall...

  17. Feature Request to Proxmox Dev Team?

    Hi, I am not sure where to submit a request like this so thought I would post it here. I hope that OK. This is I think a minor GUI tweak, maybe might be considered of use/good? Right now in web GUI for 'hardware' on a KVM Virtual Machine, hard drive size is shown for attached hard drives but...

    I'm running a 'current latest' proxmox (OVH Server stock install) 5.2-7 which has about 10 x LXC VMs on the physical host.
