    Cloning a Domain Controller via New-ADDCCloneConfig

    Hey, since Win 2012 Servers, Microsoft supports creating clones from a Domain Controller. (New-ADDCCloneConfig) However I could only find information about this on Hyper-V and ESXi. Does Proxmox/KVM support this feature aswell? I only found this old thread which doesn't have an answer...

    URGENT - High IO delay 90+% on newly configured system

    If anyone else has a similar problem: 1. Check if the MTU to your storage is correct. In my case, Proxmox used 1500 and the storage used 1300. I changed everything to Jumboframed (9000 mtu) 2. Cachemode of Virtual Disks. I had writeback active on most of my VMs and that caused high IO-Delay when...

    URGENT - High IO delay 90+% on newly configured system

    On the host, that's why it's affecting all VMs. I just set up my second server and it has the same Problem. The difference here: no multipathing, only one regular iSCSI connection.

    URGENT - High IO delay 90+% on newly configured system

    Hey, over the weekend I brought our 2nd server online to redo the first one. I moved all VMs/CTs to the 2nd server and deleted the first since everything seemed fine. However when even the slightest IO operation occurs (e.g. opening a browser on a server) the IO delay skyrockets up to 90+%...

    Restoring a backup with disks from different storages?

    Hey, I have a VM with 3 disks. The disks are distributed over 3 different storages. When I select "Restore" in the Backup tab, I can only restore to one storage. Is it possible to select where each disk is supposed to be restored? (Same with moving to another node) Sincerely Ray_

    Replacing a node in a cluster - LVM to ZFS

    Hey, I have a cluster of 3 nodes. One is booting via iSCSI which is kind of unstable. That's why I want to move the whole boot partition to local disks formatted with ZFS. No VMs are directly on this partition, only isos. My current plan is to migrate all VMs/CTs to the other 2 nodes and...

    PBS crashes without error message

    Since I host this instance in a datacenter, I contacted their support. Let's see what comes from this. I am currently running the 5.13 kernel. Do you think an update to 5.15 would help? Had to do this for my PVEs since 5.13 plays badly with iSCSI boot.

    PBS crashes without error message

    After 9 days of nothing happening, today it crashed again. Weirdly enough 30 minutes after the backup and all tasks have finished. Syslog and dmesg -w shows nothing, besides the finished tasks.

    [SOLVED] January Sender, Receiver, and Contact statistics empty

    Hey, I just tried to check some email statistics from January, but the Sender, Receiver, and Contact statistics are empty. However, I can list all the emails from January in the tracking center, and in the domain statistic, it's showing the correct amount of emails. In the spam score...

    PBS crashes without error message

    Weirdly enough for the last 2 days, it's now working without a hiccup. Very strange. I'll keep dmesg running for a few more days just in case it happens again.

    PBS crashes without error message

    I don't think that this will help, since the kern.log from the last crash has nothing in it in the timeframe of the crash. Afaik dmesg and kern.log have the same information.

    Hey, since Friday my PBS crashes when backing up. Here are the last lines of syslog before I have to hard reset the server, because it becomes completely unresponsive. No Web interface, no pings. Feb 14 00:33:48 backup proxmox-backup-proxy[1842]: vm/107/2022-02-04T23:00:42Z remove Feb 14...

    [TUTORIAL] Install PVE directly on iSCSI target

    I finally managed to boot pve. Debootstrap + points 16 and 17 from your guide did the trick. After that, I decided to try again my method with KVM and your points 16 and 17, and that worked as well. So now I finally have a regular PVE over iSCSI. The only problem I am facing now is...

    [TUTORIAL] Install PVE directly on iSCSI target

    Hey, the iSCSI connection is working fine since I had ESXi running on it 2 days ago. All disks are in a Fujitsu Eternus Dx100 s3 and there everything is shown as fine. Yes. That's why I find it extremely weird. I already used the same method to install the proxmox backup server on a hetzner...

    [TUTORIAL] Install PVE directly on iSCSI target

    Thanks for this tutorial. I tried installing pve your way, however, when the installer reaches the "make system bootable" stage it fails since it can't mount the partition. If I try to mount it manually, it can't read the superblock of pve-root (same issue as I have in my other thread...

    [SOLVED] Grub can't find volume group 'pve' on iSCSI boot

    Hey, when I try to boot a freshly installed Proxmox 7 or Debian 11 I always get the error message volume group 'pve' not found. When I boot it with Qemu in a Debian live image PVE works fine. I guess there is something wrong with my installing process: 1. connect via iscsiadm 2. Start a vm...
