  1. Proxmox VE 6.0 released!

    @gyq just an idea, can you try using the keyboard to see if that works, Alt+(underlined letter). Of course you will have to run the installer somewhere else to see what you have to press in the real server
  2. Migrate LXC to KVM

    In case you want to use the rsync method, the rsync options which have served me well over the years are: # rsync -XxAaPSH src/ dest/ I know some options are "optional", I just use that string for an easy mnemonic.
  3. v4.2 no graphic/details/stats and date 01.01.1970

    Its "rrd", round-robin-database
  4. Thinking of switching from vSphere

    If you are just interested in a Docker web gui you should try Portainer. That said, if you want to replace VMware ESXi with Proxmox, I would say "go for it"
  5. v4.2 no graphic/details/stats and date 01.01.1970

    ntpd doesn't force jump time, it slowly drifts to the correct time, in small jump. To force set the time use the cmd 'ntpdate' Example: # ntpdate -u
  6. wrong url on local screen

    Try the file '/etc/issue' which can be recreated from a post up network script (it works on Ubuntu 16, dunno if the necessary packages are installed on vanilla Debian) If you just want to find which file, grep inside "/etc"
  7. Interested in working at Proxmox? We are hiring Proxmox VE developers!

    I don't work at Proxmox, I know this one page:
  8. Proxmox VE 5.3 released!

    @Bidi Assuming this is the screenshot after you do an SSH into the machine d2 ... are you able to "touch" a file named 'forcefsck' like so: touch /forcefsck ref: If the 'touch' command doesn't work...
  9. Proxmox VE 5.3 released!

    Hi, some thoughts which come to mind ... I assume you have rebooted the server, its worth a try. Else, could you try booting into the previous kernel and try BTW, "read-only filesystem" smells of probably an "fsck needed" on the underlying file system. Can you do a forced fsck on the...
  10. Auto Scalability Feature

    @Alwin Having some sort of "autoscaling group" functionality would be a great addition to Proxmox. Of course, to keep the semantics similar to a "cloud platform", what would be useful is to be able to create a VM/LXC from a remote image url. I have home-grown scripts which download the image...
  11. Multiple parallel 'qmrestore' executions fail

    I know the problem description seems unbelievable but its true ... "works via GUI, but not from commandline". :eek: FWIW, I keep these servers updated every week or so, I'll check if the commandline problem is reproducible after a reboot (i.e. using the latest installed packages)
  12. Multiple parallel 'qmrestore' executions fail

    Yes, the first restore is still running, and this is expected. The problem is that the second restore times out within a few seconds. What is weird is that if I restore using the WebGUI, the second job correctly keeps spinning on "waiting for lock ..."
  13. Change the defaults for 'Backup Now'

    Done! :)
  14. Multiple parallel 'qmrestore' executions fail

    Related to: The bug of not reserving the VMID is solved, though there is a new problem. My PVE setup: # pveversion -v proxmox-ve: 5.3-1 (running kernel: 4.15.18-9-pve) pve-manager: 5.3-5 (running version: 5.3-5/97ae681d)...
  15. Proxmox VE 5.3 released!

    Hi, It should be a smooth upgrade from 5.2 to 5.3. I have many servers which have worked fine. Can you post your 'sources.list' file? The following command should "just work". # apt-get update && apt-get dist-upgrade -y You may have to explicitly install the 4.15 kernel if you are on PVE...
  16. Downloading data files from Proxmox node

    In addition to the use case of 'download to my workstation', I have a use case that once a backup is done, I need to copy the backup file to a central server. For the file upload idea ... a simple username (password?) box with the destination location would be good to have. (I have a script...
  17. Change the defaults for 'Backup Now'

    Hi, I am using PVE 5.3 (with updates). Is it possible to specify/change the defaults for the 'Backup Now' option? The default is always 'local' for 'Storage' and 'LZO' compression. I would like to have 'GZIP' as my default 'Compression' and possibly a different storage location. Regards...
  18. Windows 10 VM failing to shut down

    Hi @cos.sys , Has the PVE server been updated underneath? Does the Windows VM exhibit the same behavior after rebooting the PVE server? (Sometimes, I have observed funny behaviors of VMs when the PVE is updated) Regards, Shantanu
