  1. [SOLVED] Host key verification failed when migrate

    On the target node, doing a systemctl restart pveproxy Fixes the problem immediately
  2. [SOLVED] Installing ifupdown2 in PVE 6.2-4

    Yes you will. You need to remove the enterprise add the no-subscription repositories (assuming you have no subscription). sed -i 's/^\([^#].*\)/# \1/g' /etc/apt/sources.list.d/pve-enterprise.list echo "deb buster pve-no-subscription" >...
  3. apcupsd port 3551 is block? how to access to the gui ?

    Old thread I know but you need to configure /etc/apcupsd/apcupsd.conf such that the NISIP so it will accept connections from a machine other than itself (the netstat command at the top told you that. You still cannot connect from a browser, but if you wish to read the data you may be...
  4. Best Disk/Volume setup for simple installation

    I realised something today that should have been blindingly obvious; data should be stored outside the container. Doh! I'm using Proxmox at home on an old laptop to run things like pi-hole, mosquito - not much data so not an issue. I'm also running InfluxDB and Postgresql - lots of data writes...
  5. USB HDD in a cluster

    OK, so is the fact the other node looking for it a bug, when a container has been migrated that previously used it for backup? Would it be worth adding to the Wiki a how to add a USB Drive? If I was starting from scratch, what is the best way to do it? Does it need Ceph to be installed (I have...
  6. USB HDD in a cluster

    That could be the issue. I have used the USB as a directory Is that not the right way?
  7. USB HDD in a cluster

    Hi @Dominic How do I access that Menu item?
  8. USB HDD in a cluster

    I have 2 old laptops in a PVE cluster (which is brilliant). One of the nodes has a USB drive attached for backup. In the GUI, I can see the USB attached to the first node, but it also appears on the second node (with a question mark). I continually get errors in the second node logs Mar 10...
  9. [SOLVED] Installing ifupdown2 in PVE 6.2-4

    I have exactly the same question. I had previously added in the no-subscription repository, but that entry had mysteriously disappeared. Adding it in again and running an apt-update, trying the ifupdown2 install (dry run) - it worked fine. I have no idea how the deb entry got removed (the...
  10. Cannot shutdown a VM

    Got there in the end. Fist find out who had the lock fuser /var/lock/qemu-server/lock-101.conf Then kill the process and then stop/shutdown the server. Thanks for the assist!
  11. ssh to proxmox console...

    Root is by default prevented from logging in by SSH. edit /etc/ssh/sshd_config from the web console/shell. and set PermitRootLogin yes A better way is to add a drop-in and include it and an even better way is to set up some keys.
  12. Cannot shutdown a VM

    I cannot force a VM to shutdown - I need to simply pull the plug. I continually get trying to acquire lock... TASK ERROR: can't lock file '/var/lock/qemu-server/lock-101.conf' - got timeout How can I kill the process?
  13. [TUTORIAL] USB Automount

    I am getting an error trying to update Ign:4 buster InRelease Err:5 buster Release Could not handshake: Error in the pull function. [IP: 443] Reading package lists... Done E: The repository ' buster...
  14. Rotate Backups

    Having let it run, you are correct. It is what I would hope the backup system would do, but that isn't really how it is described. "Max Backups per VM" would be an improvement I'd suggest. Thanks for your help.
  15. Rotate Backups

    Ah, OK, I thought I'd read somewhere that if you reached the limit, it just did not do any further backups. [edit] Just checking and the max number is a per directory setting. Unless you create a new directory for each container, if you do not backup everything, then you could lose the backup...
  16. Rotate Backups

    Does anyone have a script they use to rotate backups before I go and reinvent the wheel.
  17. SSL Certificates for containers

    Yes I can create the certificates for each container, but that means multiple configurations of certbot. If I could use the same configuration to generate the different certificates then point the containers to the certificates, that would be far simpler. As I said, I didn't expect it would but...
  18. SSL Certificates for containers

    Is it possible to create an SSL certificate in the Node and use it for a container? I'm thinking it is not possible but it would be really useful if it could!
  19. Cannot SSH into Ubuntu container

    Solution was obvious - root by default is not permitted to login via SSH on Ubuntu. Create a drop in to override the setting and restart the service. echo "PermitRootLogin yes" > /etc/ssh/sshd_config.d/rootlogin.conf && systemctl restart sshd.service
