  1. Mounted shares stability half-bricking PM ?

    Hi there. I recently noticed issues using NFS NAS share being used as backup storage. Probably due some network issues (or nas/power failure etc) scheduled vzdump process got frozen after reaching 100%. "Lucky" for me backed up VM still worked. Anyway I had to force killing vzdump proces and...
  2. black screen/no-signal on monitor after upgrade to PVE 7?

    Hi there. I performed locally a fresh installation of PM (6.4-1) on my Fujitsu x2540 M2. After that I updated (remotely) to v.7 'by-the-book' using pve6to7 check and no-subscripton repos. Everything went smoothly but what made me wonder is no signal on vga output (@ least that's what monitor...
  3. megacli/megasasctl/megasasraid on PVE 7x?

    Hi there. Any ideas on installing megacli/megasasraid/megasasctl on PVE 7? The only working solution for me was installing 6 + hwraid packages, then upgrade to 7. What about plain 7? Any ready packages yet?
  4. networking.service status failed after install ifupdown2

    Hi there. I installed remotely ifupdown2 on my PVE 7 using SSH console (putty). I believe ifupdown2 install process seem to remove ifupdown. I did NOT perform update ifupdown packages prior to ifupdown2 installation (not a recommended move as I read after that). During installation I got dc...
  5. ZFS unable to import on boot/unable to add VD on empty zfs pool...

    Hi there... I've installed PM on my testlab: - 4-core xeon - 32GB DDR3 ECC - 2x600GB SAS (hardware PCI-E RAID1) - boot drive with PM itself + VM boot VD's... - 6x1TB 2,5" mixed SATA drives (IT mode via mothreboard integrated sata ports) My goal was to launch a VM NAS of some sort... I've...
  6. NIC bonding - unmanaged switch in LAN (no connection/no DHCP on VM)...

    Hi there. I'm testing out nic bonding since my test server has 3x1GB NICs. I want to achieve fault tolerance + increased performance. LAN environment has no advanced/managed switches so for example 802.3ad is not an option. I've tried various types of bonding, for now I have balance-rr what's...
  7. second disk for both VM's and local Backups

    Hi there. My 1st hardware RAID-1 volume is set as main Proxmox boot + rest as LVM for VM use. Now I have a new pair of disks (2nd RAID1). I'm a bit confused with configuring secondary RAID1 storage as VMs VDs + backups. Easiest way is to create an ext4 full capacity partition and mount it as...
  8. Restore only selected VD's from backup file

    Quick question. Is there an easy way to perform a 'custom' recovery meaning restore only specified VDisks (not all? I have VM with OS + data stored on separate vdisks. I want to restore only OS one...
  9. My LVM-Thin gone (?) - vdisks missing/empty (lvscan inactive)

    Hi there. I recently added new pair of server disks (hardware raid1). I've also created new LVM_Thin and moved boot-vd of my VM from my old LVM. It worked like a charm for a few days. Just now I saw my VM in a boot-loop mode - "no bootable device". In proxmox gui everything seemed to look just...
  10. LVM-Thin volume keeps getting filled up to 100%

    Hi there. I have a ~500GB LVM_Thin for vm disks. Both vdisks have total 450GB capacity (150+300). Yet after a week or so lvm-thin fills up to 100% crashing vm using it as storage location. I'm using scheduled vm backups on external nas device (NFS) - could backup possibly consume rest of free...
  11. qm importdisk (WindowsImageBackup VHD) non-existent or non-regular file

    Hi there. I have a Win2008R2 backup (as a WindowsImageBackup) stored on a usb drive (ntfs). It contains VHD files so I'm thinking of importing those as VM disks. I've already mounted usb drive, however "importdisk" fails: root@******# qm importdisk 100...
  12. Dell PowerEdge 2950 - pci passthrough USB controller.

    Hi there. I'm about to implement Proxmox to a bit "vintage" PE2950 (based on E5440 Xeons), then fire up a Win2k8 R2 VM. Thing is VM needs direct access to USB (software requires usb key). I'm about to add pcie usb controller... Any confirmation of PE2950 handling passthrough?
  13. How to add additional IP to Proxmox itself...

    Hi there. I wonder if it's possible to easily add additional IP to main Proxmox NIC. I can easily add additional IP lets say in windows network TCP/IP setup... I need to Proxmox showing up in both subnets with apropriate IP. I'd like to run it on a single NIC (as a member of vmbr0). Thing is...
  14. Additional disk for both: VD and backup

    Hi there. I've added additional mirrored (hardware Raid1) 3TB storage (3,5" SAS 7.2k). My goal is to share this storage both for VD's and for some proxmox backups. Might be wrong but that means that I shall split the capacity (lets say 50/50) for LVM (vd's) and rest for EXT4 for backup space. Or...
  15. Proxmox - importing VMware ESXi (vmdk) machine (ubuntu based) - cannot process volume group

    Hi there. I'm struggling with a following task. One of my clients wants to deploy a freshly bought custom ERP'ish platform. the system with half-ready OS, database etc. comes as a VM in one of following formats: VMware ESXi or MS Hyper-V. ERP software developer recommends only those hypervisors...
  16. New server, new Proxmox ISO, fresh install and: invalid pve ticket 401 (web console)

    Hi there. I got myself a new server with 4xSSD hardware Raid10 on it. I've just installed latest Proxmox and everything seem to work, however PM web-console sessions seem to expire quite often. I'm unable to finish uploading larger ISO's (session breaks during upload). I get the: invalid pve...
  17. Backup VMs with multiple VDs...

    Here's one: While there is a parameter for excluding VD from backup ("no backup") feels I miss something... What if VM has multiple VD's - lets say 1st VD =vm OS (boot); 2nd VD= vm DATA Now... How to perform a backup with OS-VD only lets say once a week, while performing full backups (or even...
  18. [SOLVED] can't remove drive 'ide0' - protection mode enabled (500)

    Hi there. I've created a 2nd VD on VM setting wrong destination (selected local-zfs instead of NFS storage). Now I'm unable to detach and remove this VD. Obviously tried to do so with VM turned off. This VD hasn't been used at all. can't remove drive 'ide0' - protection mode enabled (500)...
  19. Win2003 VM - driver for VirtioSCSI

    Hi there. I'm struggling to get proper driver for VirtioSCSI VD. OS is installed on IDE VD but I want to create a second VD in VirtIOSCSI mode. My goal is to copy some data to that drive and then move it to newer OS VM. Now, I already tried ome various outdated virtio driver isos - no luck so far.
  20. Second VM not starting (failed 12: cannot allocate memory)

    Hi there... I'm running PM on a pretty cheap server (4-core Xeon, 16GB ECC, 2x1TB SATA@ZFS). For now there is only one VM running with 2 cores and 4GB RAM. I've tweaked zfs arc RAM usage to max 4GB (min. 2GB, max 4GB). Currently ZFS RAM usage shows ca 2,5GB. Thing is I have to replace old...
