  1. Stop looping task "STOP"

    Click on the VM and at the top of the screen: This will be similar to pulling the cord on a running system so only a last resort.
  2. Proxmox server upgrade

    I recently did an upgrade from 5 to 7, the only way to do it is one version at a time. Start here: https://pve.proxmox.com/wiki/Upgrade_from_4.x_to_5.0 Once you get to 5 the upgrade to 6 is similar but there is a new command pve5to6 you can run first to give you a test if things will work. As...
  3. Passthrough usb tuner to container

    For something complicated like that, why not pass the entire host usb port? That way you don't have to mess with multiple individual things to pass through.
  4. Reduce Windows VM disk the right way?

    I've read countless threads that all say "you can only increase disk size, no easy way to claw back unused space" Some people summarized say "backup and restore to smaller disk" but how ?! My specific situation: I just "upgraded" my single proxmox node into a 3 node cluster using NFS as the...
  5. Adding 10gb ethernet to existing setup.

    I think I found the answer, I simply added the NAS to my /etc/hosts and remounted the NFS Share by migrating off all vm from the node and unmounting it. It automatically remounted using the new subnet based on the host lookup. Setting the migration settings on the datacenter takes care of the...
  6. Adding 10gb ethernet to existing setup.

    I'm in the process of upgrading my existing 3 node cluster with 10gbs ethernet cards and was wondering what the best way forward is. All 3 nodes are using the current version of proxmox 7 and I'm using a shared NFS Storage disk between them. I wanted to separate the current 1gb network from...
  7. [SOLVED] Creating the Datastore is not Working - EPERM Operation not permitted

    I added the users but still no dice, I followed this guide and was able to add the datastore. ( https://geekistheway.com/2021/03/07/how-to-setup-nfs-on-synology-nas-for-proxmox-backup-server-to-use-as-datastore/) It still doesn't work right but At least I was able to add a datastore instead of...
  8. Proxmox backup server and file level restore

    Thanks for the response, I read both those links before. The second one says : At the moment with my current setup that I'm looking to replace the option is certainly not there. Right now I have lvm-thin on a hw raid controller. I also scanned through the iscisi vs nfs thread, not sure by how...
  9. Proxmox backup server and file level restore

    I've been searching all day for answers and I'm so confused now. What I want to do: Backup my VM's to a Synology NAS. Use a different Synology NAS to host my VM's (with caching and 10Gb ethernet) Set up two proxmox nodes in cluster to allow me to migrate VM's if one fails with the same shared...
  10. Import vmware image - new!

    I stumbled upon this guide this morning that's designed for lvm-thin storage! Maybe proxmox documentation can include something like this as well? https://www.sysorchestra.com/2017/03/16/migrate-vmware-esxi-virtual-machines-to-proxmox-kvm-with-lvm-thin-logical-volumes/ Anyway it gave me the...
  11. Import vmware image - new!

    So I've looked at a ton of guides on this and they all want to make cows (qcow files) but I'm using lvm-thin on proxmox 5 which no longer does qcow I believe.. So I found a guide that says to just extract the ova file and then use the command: qm importovf No problemo, I have a usb drive...
  12. Usb 3 passthrough not working pve5.1

    I have not been playing with it much and basically just gave up. IT worked perfectly fine in server 2008 and windows 7 but server 2016's built in usb 3 driver does not play well with proxmox. I need to test this again but just haven't had time.
  13. IO Delay help/advice

    Thanks for the advice, my situation is slightly different though, I'm not recovering the whole VM but recovering a database from inside the VM. So using the info you provided would it help then to set disk throttle limits on the VM like this:
  14. IO Delay help/advice

    So this sort of helped but when dealing with really large amounts of data IO delay still goes to 25% and everything gets crazy slow. The only thing that really causes it for now is when I restore a database that's 100+ Gb big into SQL Server because it causes both read and write IO. So back to...
  15. IO Delay help/advice

    Ah well that gives me somewhere to start looking, thanks! *edit* So I checked my Raid controller and it was set for write-through instead of write-back.. With the write-back setting im getting: FSYNCS/SECOND: 2886.22 Yeah some updates can be done through web gui but not for that raid...
  16. IO Delay help/advice

    This server is brand new, It just came to market in September 2017. In fact it took a while because the Rain controller was even supported by the proxmox kernel. I've also done one round of updates on the controller firmware. It's kinda of a pain since IBM only supports windows and red hat for...
  17. IO Delay help/advice

    I think its lvm-thin, I'm not 100% sure how I even set it up, I think I just followed the defaults in the guide. My storage config looks like this. dir: local path /var/lib/vz content iso,backup,vztmpl lvmthin: local-lvm thinpool data vgname pve content...
  18. IO Delay help/advice

    Hey Everyone So I have a server with a raid controller with 8Gb cache onboard and some nearline SAS 7200 (yes i know they are not the best drives) in raid 5. Server is an ibm SR550 The max disk performance sustained is about 150mb/s read and write. My problem is that when I restore a 300Gb...
  19. New windows VM keeps dying

    Ok.. more updates haha, So there is already a thread : https://forum.proxmox.com/threads/blue-screen-with-5-1.37664/page-10 And seems latest kernel 4.13.8-26 fixes this? What is weird is that I have 4 server 2016 VM's(only 1 is production sofar the others are test) and the first one runs...
  20. New windows VM keeps dying

    I have some more info, it turns out that windows is crashing with: The bugcheck was: 0x00000109 (0xa39fdadeac097720, 0xb3b6e764fe8a8a51, 0x0000034000000000, 0x0000000000000017) I googled that and found: This problem occurs because the system detects a Critical MSR modification, and then it...
