  1. VM network problems

    I am running openvswitch on my Proxmox 6.1 server. I installed pfSense as a VM and for the most part it running well. Recently, I tried to install as a VM, OpenMediaVault, which seemed to have problems when it tried to connect repository mirrors. I assumed that there might have been a problem...
  2. pfSense and access to the PVE web interface

    I am two steps away from everything working. After getting a better understanding of openvswitch, I finally have pfSense nearly working with traffic moving between VLANs and other things as well. The one issue that I can seem to solve is accessing the PVE management interface. Initially, I set...
  3. Linux bridge and ovs

    Using a network setup, I created a linux bridge (vmbr0) and an ovs bridge (vmbr1). The reason for this was that I have my laptop eth0 plugged directly to my DSL gateway (which is my vmbr0) and I have an additional interface plugged in which has be setup using ovs (which is for pfsense.). Using...
  4. Pointers on installing PM 6.1 and working with OVS

    I couple of days ago, my pfSense box died, which didn't really bother me since I was planning to move pfSense to PM. First off I am working with a single interface since i running on a laptop. At this point, I have my **Arris ATT DSL Gateway**, a ** Cisco SG-300** 10 port switch, a **GL.iNet**...
  5. Switching to OVS

    This morning I decided to make the jump to ovs. I am at the point of applying my changes, but I wanted to do check a couple of things. After I installed *openvswitch*, I noticed that the openvswitch.service was disabled. I decided to not enable or start the service until I was sure that it would...
  6. Using proxmox and a Desktop enviroment

    I am sure that the posting question is a little confusing. I recently picked up a Thinkpad T420 laptop, and I added a M.2 ssd, two 1TB ssd drives, 16G RAM and a quad core i7 processor for my daily driver work laptop. For grins and giggles, I thought I would install Proxmox so I could get the...
  7. Installation on a Mac Pro

    I got my hands on a Mac Pro 2012 with two 6 core Xeons. The Mac has a 500GB SSD and three 6TB drives. When I have installed Proxmox previous, I also would install docker and zfs as well. How does setup my data drives to allow both LVM-Thin and docker storage to co-exist or should I just create...
  8. pfSense setup

    I have been doing my due diligence in trying to make the move from a hardware to software designed network. I am currently trying to decide if I can work with what I have currently running and make the appropriate changes or should I just blow everything away and start from scratch. Currently...
  9. Using external drives

    I have two external 4TB usb drives that I wanted to use as a storage pool. I installed PM 6.1 using the standard method with LVM layout. I see there is a way to do an install with ZFS, but I thought I would go with the default. On the other hand, I thought that I would create a zpool using the...
  10. A correct setup for a HP Z800

    I have been looking at purchasing a HP Z800 workstation. The idea of have 12 cores/24 threads sounds like I can really be productive. I have yet to get the correct storage layout, but it would seem that the Z800 has only 4 drive bays and no real room to add for instance, a 1TB boot HD for...
  11. What is the easy way to move from Linux Bridge to ovs

    I have been running the default linux bridge, but would like to switch over to ovs. I have apt-get openvswitch and now to need to understand how to install?
  12. KMV issue

    I just did a clean install of 5.2-1 and I am still having issues with starting a KVM image. root@pve:~# uname -a Linux pve 4.15.17-3-pve #1 SMP PVE 4.15.17-14 (Wed, 27 Jun 2018 17:18:05 +0200) x86_64 GNU/Linux root@pve:~# pveversion -v proxmox-ve: 5.2-2 (running kernel: 4.15.17-3-pve)...
  13. Separation of networks

    I am getting ready to re-install Proxmox 5.2 on my laptop again. When I am configuring the management interface, I have my Cat 5 plugged into my switch and the IP address is attached to my management VLAN (in this case 192.168.5.0/24). I have also configured the ports to be a access port as well...
  14. Making use of Local-LVM

    I have tried to understand how to make use of Local-LVM for LXC, but failing. Every time I attempt to create a new container, the only option is local as opposed to both local and local-lvm. Besides lxc, could I use local-lvm for a docker container? If so, how does one point a docker container...
  15. How does one change the template mirror

    I was getting ready to download a turnkey linux container and realized that I was using a mirror in Germany. At the rate it was going, I wouldn't see if until several hours later. I did a little searching and find a mirror at umd.edu... I wget the container and 2 minutes later I was ready to...
  16. Ideal LVM setup?

    I forgot about the easy of use of Proxmox when I was looking to make my laptop into a virtual host. I was getting ready to install PM5 when I started to wonder about how to optimally setup my 2TB SATA drive.
