Not sure if this is allowed or not. If not, mods feel free to nuke this. If it is allowed I am hoping that I can save some poor sap like me a few minutes (hours) of trying to figure out why I could not get my .ova file to be unzipped.
Here are some of the guides I used to get a...
I was actually just about to post that I solved the issue. I the VM I was trying to migrate, was simply larger then the node I was trying to migrate it too. So naturally that is not going to work. Thank for taking the time to help me though!
I just installed proxmox on a new Optiplex to act as a new node for my little homelab. It has one NIC and on SSD and I installed and configured the OS and it all seems to be working. I was able to create a cluster and then join the new node to the cluster without any issues. Now the...
So after much trial and error and googling. I simply removed the old LVM Group, then ran "sgdisk -Z /dev/sdc" on the drive. From there I was able to reinitialize the drive and add it is a directory where I can now upload files too it.
Thanks you @vshaulsk you have been a huge help.
Removed it from the "datacenter; Storage". Checked under the "disks; directory" I still see it as a VG.
I was able to remove the Volume Group, but when I go to add it as a directory it says "No disk unused".
Tried this and got the following outputs:

I did read documentation and watch a number of videos. Most of which did not cover the concept of RAID and RAID configuration all that well. I read the wiki and thought that all I would need to do was create new directories for each RAID since directories seemed the most versatile form of...
So, its been a minute and I hate to revive my old thread. But I reinstalled proxmox with a RAID configuration mentioned above. This is what my current "Disk" situation is looking like. Now how do I get this into usable storage?
I have around 48GBs of RAM so I don't think I should have any issues. Now how would I go about configuring these volumes without the RAID card. Normally I would boot into the RAID card, create the 3 volumes and then boot to the installer and go from there. But since there won't be a card, do I...
This is perfect. Few more things, what exactly would the use case of the non vm storage be? Holding ISOs, snapshots, backups etc I'm assuming? And should I just ditch the hardware RAID card and use the software RAID in Proxmox?
I'm not sure if I am being clear enough either. So essentially I have 24 120GB SSDs. I want to install Proxmox on my server. I don't really care about having redundancy but I do want the ability to take snapshots/backups of VMs. Essentially I want to be able to install Proxmox on those drives...
You are going to have to explain that a little simpler for me. Sorry, I'm a bit of a noob.
So avoid a single volume set AKA 2 SSDs in RAID 0?
Not sure what the difference between virtual disks and non virtual disks in this instance.
So ZFS seems like a more ideal and simpler solution. I am not against simply removing the RAID card, since I have never really used RAID. So again it seems like I should create a RAID 0 of 2 disks for the OS and then a RAID 5 for the other twenty-two drives? Then in Promox, how would the RAID 5...
Yeah RAID 5 and 10 what was I was looking at for my next option.
As for not being able to do anything, in the GUI I could not do anything. I could not create an LVM, I could not delete and LVM, couldn't upload any files to the content section. And the storage space was tiny.
Of course most of...
A nice Supermicro Server (CSE-216A-R900LPB, X8DTU-F mobo) has come into my possession from my employer. I am attempting to get a simple homelab setup to practice virtualization, devops and security work. It has come with twenty-four 120GB SSDs with an Adeptec RAID controller. I could use...
