  1. Q: Qcow2 file error Weird Problem > Any comments/thoughts?

    Hi, thank you for the reply. These are great suggestions and questions. - yes the blob of text given above is the full output from the VM107 start task log. - I dig into logs on host, and found a few things related that may be of interest. Sep 26 12:48:21 proxmox QEMU[16996]: qcow2: Marking...
  2. Q: Qcow2 file error Weird Problem > Any comments/thoughts?

    Hi everyone, small 'fun' question. New one for me, I am banging my head on this gently in the last few days. I've got a proxmox (ver 6.4.15) host at a client site (yes, I need to upgrade it to 7.Latest) which has been in service a few years (approx) Generally it works smoothly (Dell 2u...
  3. Proxmox Support

    This is not really helpful very likely, just an observation-comment. My opinion on the topic of ZFS (or unsupported linux SW raid) and then vanilla Hardware Raid. Or no raid at all. Raid is important for production generally. data backups / VM Backups are really important Part of raid being a...
  4. Q: Proxmox Backup Server and "USB Drive" Set for offsite rotation ?

    Hi, I am curious to ask. This maybe super obvious but I am having trouble getting my head around it. I've got a client who has onsite Proxmox system / which has PBS running locally on Proxmox Server as well. They have one main VM for their office to be operational. It has a nightly backup...
  5. Q: Win10Pro VM Guest install / "Bios" Activation key?

    Hi, I am not sure but you can test and if it works, you know the answer. Based on my re-reading of my own notes (ie, I forget) - it appears that the string dumped to file when I did this on a lenovo - did have spaces in the output - and I did not edit this output at all (ie, adding quotes was...
  6. Q: LVM_Thin and restore 'bigger' VM

    Footnote2, I reviewed this thread, https://forum.proxmox.com/threads/proxmox-io-error-lvm-thin-full.64714/ and I think the situation is more or less the same, and I think if I am reading this correctly, LVM_Thin does not work the way I thought. but any feedback confirm is appreciated.
  7. Q: LVM_Thin and restore 'bigger' VM

    Footnote, another thread I found this morning had the answer to my 'mystery' about the VM I could not unlock. Sigh. Doh. You are using qm instead of pct, you should use pct unlock 110 instead. so at least that one is clear to me now. If anyone has comments on the LVM_THIN topic, any feedback...
  8. Q: LVM_Thin and restore 'bigger' VM

    Hi, I have question / curious if anyone has insight/comment. - doing a P2V migration of a physical host > proxmox; using a temporary staging host to facilitate the transfer. - Stage host and clobber old host - was done with ISO / stock install proxmox host 7.latest - OldHost is supermicro...
  9. Q: Proxmox 5 on Debian / weird 'route' issue

    thanks for confirming! I moved/removed the 2 files in the directory /etc/systemd/network/ rebooted the host things came up cleanly without the unwanted route being forced-configured so - all is well. (I am not using ipv6 so did not need to bring it over.) so, nice when things work 'as...
  10. Q: Proxmox 5 on Debian / weird 'route' issue

    ha ha, after writing my question. I think I may have found it. Just need to dig a bit more. There appears to be a stock file present, /etc/systemd/network/50-default.network which has some info that looks like it is getting involved. ie, File: /etc/systemd/network/50-default.network...
  11. Q: Proxmox 5 on Debian / weird 'route' issue

    Hi all, this is a bit of long shot but just in case. I've got a client still using a few legacy proxmox servers running Proxmox5.x which we haven't migrated up to Proxmox6 quiet yet. (sigh). I had to deploy a new host for them yesterday. Their environment is all on OVH_SYS. The new box was...
  12. Q: iptables config tweak sanity check (firewall config / access bafflement)

    Hi, I'm banging my head on this and slightly frustrating / so I wonder if I can ask for someone who is very happy with Iptables fun to comment possibly. I've got a host with is running on OVH-SYS hosting, proxmox install template (is basically a Debian stock / SW raid / with proxmox added to...
  13. Q: Win10Pro VM Guest install / "Bios" Activation key?

    Great news .. glad to hear the instructions work for someone else! :-) thanks for confirming. I also agree - it had bugged me (nothing serious, just 'annoyance') that I had trouble getting this working in the past :-) So definitely cool :-) Tim
  14. Q: Win10Pro VM Guest install / "Bios" Activation key?

    Footnote on this thread, in case of any interest. I just was setting up another box today, and managed to get this working for the first time. Process was slightly different than in the thread above, but general process is the same. Precise steps used, which were a success: setup the VM in...
  15. Q: various VirtIO SCSI Config scenarios > BSOD vs Not for Win10 guest

    sounds good - thanks for the added detail! I agree, the BSOD is bad / should be resolved. I'll look at this with my client and figure out what is going on. generally speaking, I agree with you - I have found that VirtIO 'just works' and generally performs 'very well'. (ie, no scsi mentioned...
  16. Q: various VirtIO SCSI Config scenarios > BSOD vs Not for Win10 guest

    Hi, I believe that attaching an empty drive (not changing boot drive) causes the BSOD. I will double check with client. I agree that that is cleanest way to get the virtio driver integrated. In theory the virtio driver is already present and working / as per my description, I also agree, my...
  17. Q: various VirtIO SCSI Config scenarios > BSOD vs Not for Win10 guest

    Hi, I have a client asking me for clarification on this topic, and I am not quite sure. Best practice guide in proxmox docs https://pve.proxmox.com/wiki/Windows_10_guest_best_practices suggests we should use ""SCSI" as bus with "VirtIO SCSI" as controller." My normal routine in past was to...
  18. Query: 2 node setup with HA (3rd box for quorum) > ZFS datastore / better-other?-options?

    Thanks for added detail! In this case the client is the sort who prefer to pay for extended warranty and 3-hour onsite service from dell. ie, they are not the kind who will ever 'attach disks to a different box that is not precisely the same as the original make-model of the original box'...
  19. Query: 2 node setup with HA (3rd box for quorum) > ZFS datastore / better-other?-options?

    Hi Aaron! Thanks for this reply. This all sounds good. Kind of about what I had thought might be the case, more or less, based on reading I've done so far. I'm pretty sure for this deployment a 2-node and ZFS @ 1minute replication might be simpler / with 3rd vote on PBS box. I must admit I am...
  20. Query: 2 node setup with HA (3rd box for quorum) > ZFS datastore / better-other?-options?

    Hi, I am hoping to just make a sanity check for guidance to see if I'm overlooking something. Feedback is greatly appreciated! I'm hoping to setup a modest size cluster for a client, project is ramping up with 'fairly modest' requirements and hopes the business will grow and it needs to scale...
