I have a Debian 11 VM under Proxmox 7.1.-10 that crashes when the HOST issues the file system freeze command. I noticed the VM crashes during the nightly backup.
I have checked the guest agent is installed on the VM. On a hunch I disabled "guest agent" on the Host VM config and backup appears...
Im just clicking buttons and pasting script in the shell.. so... reinstall & restore it is ;)
but on a related note.... Can the boot mode have an affect on PCI passthrough or do you think its more likely that something else is going on?
Thanks and take care
how are you passing through your disks? via gui? via qemu add disk or via pci controller? ideally you want a hba controller in IT mode and just pass the entire thing to the VM so Proxmox doesnt do anything funky in between. This way you also get smart etc.
hi fellow Proxmoxers,
It seems my old DELL server will not work with a GPU passthrough in UEFI mode. I have successfully configured the passthrough in Legacy Bios (on the host) but on a new Proxmox install on the same machine with UEFI I cant get it to work. In fact the host sometimes freezes...
I am running about XX linked clones (LXC) on ZFS that obviously save me a lot of hdd space. I back those up to an external storage. If things turn for the worst and Id have to restore to a new Proxmox Installation is there a way to restore the containers with the same space benefits as before...
This is on a brand new dedicated root server with new nvmes and a fresh pool. I have changed the zarc max size but other than that not done any changes afaik.
This screen loads forever. Any ideas? thx
root@srv3:~# pveversion -v
proxmox-ve: 6.3-1 (running kernel: 5.4.103-1-pve)
Given that I dont remember all my VM IDs after a restore I have too look in "SHOW CONFIG" to find all the hostnames that I want to restore. Any way PROXMOX could add a column in the overview? Seems like there is enough room :)
just installed a vanilla Proxmox VE to two brand new SSDs. Used ZFS Mirror. I have restored a VM from backup but snapshot features are not available. "the guest configration does not support taking snapshots" ...where or how can i configure this?
Thank you for any help.
I currently have a single SSD where PROXMOX and some VMs reside. All Data and VMS are backuped up. To decrease chance of downtime i would like to migrate from a single SSD disk to a mirror. Is this possible or is a new install and restore required? I might as well take my chances if i have to...
funny how i was just having the same issue. my plan is to clonezilla the drive and just put into the the new hardware ...in case something goes wrong i can still stick the copy into the old box and things will work out. once its running you can simply move on.
Is it generally possible to have a Guest VM use a physically attached monitor like its "normal" display?
Is it perhaps even possible that when X Monitors are a connected that X VMs use these external monitors?
i.e.: show each VM on a attached display?
Is a dedicated GPU required?
Does each VM...
