  3. Recovering PBS datastores from a system disc crash

    Created /mnt/datastore and missing subdirectories. Mounted each subdirectory to the corresponding disk partition (data store). Now, i can see my previous backups. This is a temporary measure.

  4. Recovering PBS datastores from a system disc crash

    I have recovered the /etc/proxmox-backup directory and copied all .cfg files to the newly installed system disk.

  6. Best storage target for VMs and containers

    what would be the benefits of iscsi vs nfs, knowing they are both on top of openzfs (in my case as i am planning to use truenas core) ? I read somewhere that proxmox is issuing cli commands over an ssh connection to truenas to do various stuffs like snapshots; so, no api interaction, no real...

  11. Can't determine (and so can't stop) the origin of abusive email

    From a further investigation, it seems that this happens when the email have been put in quarantine and then unquaranteened by a user. I still can't determine who has unquaranteened this email.
  12. Suggestion for PMG quarantine

    I thought of a manual whitelisting mecanism where people have to send their email address by sms to given number to get added to a whitelist before being able to send to our domain. Did not implement it yet, but this looks like what cpanel seems doing.
  13. Can't determine (and so can't stop) the origin of abusive email

    Hi, I have a PMG behind a firewall with only port 25 from the public ip address redirected to port 25 of my PMG. In the tracking center i find the following few informations about an abusive email: Mar 2 09:09:05 mail postfix/smtpd[4340]: connect from localhost[] Mar 2 09:09:05 mail...

  17. Scheduling automatic restorations

    Hi, PVE does a great job of periodically backing up vms and containers and PBS another great job of periodically checking those backups.
