Would it be possible to add a feature in to an upcoming release of proxmox?
Essentially - Proxmox makes a fantastic platform for serving LXC contains when running inside a kvm server.
The model is simple:
- install proxmox into a virtual server.
- use proxmox to run lxc containers
I am working on a solution where it would be advantages to allow a guest machine to have the ability to assign its own vlans.
Essentially I will have a vyos/vyatta box running as a virtual router. Ideally the virtual router will be able to setup a new vlan on the fly.
So I guess what...
Right.. I have hit a rather frustrating problem that I am pretty certain is going to affect ALLOT of people.
My latest PCI compliancy scans on one of my servers threw up a problem.

So I am busy whipping together a low level api to enable our customers to stop/start their own machines etc..
The api is really good! Nice job on that.
What I am a bit confused about is how to initialize a java console to view the machine.
So.. assuming I run this command:
has some interesting debug and fix on the lsi problems.
I have checked and the 'patch' they have is not yet included on the LSI supplied driver source. So guess it may...
Silly question I am sure!
vzdump of openvz containers basically does a tar of the container. Not a problem :-)
But where in this tar file is the machines configuration file kept?
e.g. My machine is is 102; and has the config file: /etc/vz/conf/102.conf on the host.
Proxmox Backups - An option to not use LVM Snapshots - but HCP Instead!
Will it be possible to get an extention added in to the backup system. (vzdumps)
Essentially.. rather than running an LVM snapshot..... run and HCP snapshot?
The HCP snapshot system 'is' free software but not...
Anyone following my various posts on this forum will have noted that I have been having allot of problems recently!
Poor disk performance... lvm snapshots not working... random disk io lockup etc.
I have now finally got it working and my machines are backing up no problem! Disks are...
As part of my excersise to try and address why my megaraid cards:
9640-i and 9660-i keep locking out disk io; I have been working through some potential fixes with LSI.
The one thing they have come back with is:
The issue that needs to be resolved is with the driver being used. In...
I am not sure where to report these -or if they are already known?
1. vzmigrate option in gui does not allow you to do a 'non online' migration. But you can from the CLI?
2. after extended periods of running - the left had box on the gui looses the ability for the scroll bar to...
I have recently installed 6 new super micro servers.
Each of these has been experiencing various issues related to disk io under proxmox 2.
I have been working through a variety of fixes for these issues - and have now got the following 'working' platform in place.
I run a bacula backup system and have some scripts that automatically create an lvm snapshot of /var/lib/vz prior to backup.
Since the update to version two....
I get this error when I unmount the snapshot:
Unable to deactivate open pve-data-real (253:4)
I have a proxmox sytem that has been installed onto a raid 10 system running on a LSI megaraid controller.
Now.. it seems that their are some issues in that the system will hang up when the drives are being driven hard. Not a crash as such - but the system seems to get into a state...
Just wondering what the rough eta is for proxmox 2.0 to be released?
I have a new cluster due to go live shortly - but have rather cautious about using the beta on a live environment!
Lastly.. assuming I use 1.9. Then will there be an upgrade possibility to 2.0?
I have an odd issue with proxmox 1.9
I have started to migrate my machines to it - and now find the guest machines loosing their network config.
All my OPENVZ Guests have an eth0 interface mapped to them. This is necessary as each interface. e.g. VMBR7 is on its own vlan. So.. we...
This may have come up before.. but I thought worth mentioning.
If you occasionally have backups using the vzdump system fail - because the /mnt/pve/vzsnap folder could not be unmounted...The issue is most likely the mlocate cron job traversing this mount point.The fix is very simple - and...
