  1. SR-IOV and BSD (PFSense, TrueNAS Core) reset_hw() failure: Reset Failed!

    So I'm trying to evaluate SR-IOV on a test server (Dell R620, dual E5-2670v2, SR-IOV, VT-D, etc all enabled) and everything works on a Linux guest, but I'm getting the following error whenever I attempt to boot up a BSD appliance guest. The NIC is an Intel X520 based Dell rNDC, and AFAIK is...
  2. Proxmox VE 7.2 and Solaris Kernel?

    I'm trying to evaluate some Solaris based programs (OmniOS and NexentaStor) that are based on current Solaris Kernels. The long term goal is to pass through an HBA to these systems in PCIE mode, so I would want the Q35 VM mode. However, when configuring these VMs with a Q35 machine type, both...
  3. ZFS over iSCSI backend recommendations?

    So I'm looking into using ZFS over iSCSI, and I'm trying to find a good target. I've tried both TrueNAS Core and TrueNAS Scale, but both fail on a missing CLI utility. Being an appliance, I don't trust them to continue functioning through an update if I forcibly install those CLI utilities...
  4. VM Start Timeout

    So some of my VMs take longer to start than others. Typically if I either pass in a PCIE device or use a lot of memory, but most frequently when I do both. Example output is below, but the key error is: failed: got timeout. If I run the command manually, it always works out and loads...
  5. Qdevice for Non-HA cluster?

    So I'm pretty sure I know the answer. I'm building a very small cluster for now. Two nodes. One hosts the NAS and SAN and a few other 'infrastrcture-y' things. The other hosts most of the VMs that I want to boot *from* the SAN. I can manually migrate them from the service node to the infra...
  6. SAN boot and dynamic auto-configuration?

    Is it possible at this time to configure a proxmox cluster such that a host machine can boot over the SAN (iSCSI or NFS) using a genericized, Read Only image, then once it boots, it gets its identity information via DHCP or TFTP or similar to know its hostname and any other essentials, then it...
  7. NPIV (vHBA) on proxmox

    Is there a way to enable NPIV or vHBA on Proxmox, or is this on the roadmap? I need this for an expansion I have planned, and SCSI device passthrough is unlikely to be sufficient. The plan is to build a new SAN host with two distinct vSAN arrays, and connect them both to the Fibre Channel...
  8. Schedule jobs for boot, or start from CLI

    I'm looking to run a second PBS server separate from my main, and have it just power up in the middle of the night (I've got this working), then immediately kick off a sync job, then a verify, then a prune/GC, then, if the start up time was the scheduled time, also automatically shut down when...
  9. Any info on a Promox Linux installer and management system?

    I really like Proxmox' Web Gui and the way the installer manages configuring ZFS for boot, with both mirroring and ESP configuration, disk status and smart, ceph, firewall, and the whole general UI to manage a lot of basic things. I would use it for a select subset of my infrastructure in my...
  10. Expanding ZFS mirrors

    So I'm migrating my cluster to something a little smaller, and moving from Ceph cluster down to single node with ZFS. One major feature I like from Ceph is that when I add a new drive or twelve, I get data automatically rebalanced across the cluster. Part of my goal is to spend minimal money...
  11. Ceph OSDs marked out, but still rebalance when I remove them.

    Okay, so reading the manual for Ceph tells me to mark an OSD as "Out" and then allow the pool to rebalance the data away from it before removing it, and then removing it should not require any rebalancing. Okay, so I did this. I marked an OSD as OUT. I added two OSDs to replace it. I let the...
  12. Proxmox cluster rebooted when I power cycled a switch

    So uh, I'm sure I know why this happened, but here goes. I was having some communication issues on one node after a disaster recovery and reinstall. I checked all the config, but VLANs on this VM just wouldn't communicate outside the host. So I decided to attempt to reboot the switch. (Note...
  13. Proxmox complains when importing Step-CA root certificate bundle chain

    So I set up a step-ca ACME certificate authority to get proxmox and other things valid internal certificates so I can manage trust using internal domain names. This shouldn't be too much of a stretch. Here's the thing, I can't upload the Root CA to proxmox to be able to register. When I go to...
  14. Non-PVE Ceph Cluster Member

    I'm running a cluster in PVE and ceph as my main storage as is the norm these days, but for reasons that may or may not be common, I don't want to run PVE on all my guests or several of my physical machines. I would like to be able to install just enough software however to have Proxmox VE...
  15. Proxmox 4 should use OVS by default

    Linux trunking, bonding, and bridging is outdated, awkward to configure, and doesn't do vlans or virtual interfaces very well. With today's modern infrastructure requirements, I think proxmox 4 should switch to openvswitch by default instead of legacy software. It does everything that the...
  16. [Solved] unable to delete zfs images in proxmox 4 beta 1 with LVM

    So after creating a test image on a test proxmox 4 install as a ZFS image, I was unable to remove said image. I had used debian 8 and lvm. I later discovered that the host (proxmox) had run run vgchange -an volgroupname and vgexport volgroupname to be able to destroy the image on zfs. No...
