I am using two Synology with NFS folders (one in production, the other in standby) to store the virtual disks of the VMs (datacenter).
And in each Proxmox I have some local disks with ZFS to be able to do snapshoots, but I don't do it due to some ignorance on my part (due to past experiences)...
Yes, when re-editing the text I mistakenly mixed the two. (facepalm)
Now that I re-read your comment, I understand about cv4pve-autosnapshot, it sounds very attractive.
One doubt here:
In case of having to migrate the VM (with snapshots) from server-A to server-B. what happens to the...
Thanks for your list to prevent disasters @Dunuin
I need to read it very carefully, as there are things I don't know (even though I started reading I still don't understand how to use or install some).
(1b) PBC, I didn't know it or that I could use it in Promox.
(2b) Debian USB with PBC
Good advice; I didn't know that.
And since I really simulated a total disaster (no backups) I didn't have any /etc/folder backups.
I want to simulate a total disaster without backups; of course taking note of the previous Proxmox configuration. It will be easier to copy the configurations as...
After a few days busy with other projects, I managed to do all the suggested steps.
Dunion. Where you say that I should use "qm rescan", when I try it without creating the VM it shows me nothing: Only after creating a VM with the same ID it showed me the SSD disks: Perfect!
Sadly, with so many...
I tried that last night (reading other posts), but no pool appears.
I remember that I even tried typing the data in the fields (in Datacenter > Storage > Add > ZFS > *select your zfs pool*) but it does not show the pool.
I'll post a screenshot when I get home.
Some time ago when I tried to do...
I am practicing with Proxmox; my interest is to get the following to be prepared:
Simulate a disaster on Proxmox (without PBS), install a new Proxmox and use the SSD/ZFS/Pool with VMs on the new server.
This, because I want to use a development Proxmox that I could take from the...
A few hours ago I had a windows VM, with 3 disks (qcow2,scsi,virtio), the vm had been backing up correctly for months.
And today reading that SQL SERVER needs RAW disks for better performance I decided to remove 2 of 3 disks and add new RAW disks.
When trying to do the backup in PBS I...
With no solution, the only workaround was to reinstall my cluster.
This time I was careful to reinstall each Proxmox with an 8GB Swap partition.
I recommend having a Proxmox Backup Server installed on your cluster; PBS is a lifesaver and is quick to restore backups.
+1 for PBS.:)
Looks like I won't be spared from reinstalling my 3 servers and recreating my cluster.
Luckily, by having a PBS and recent backups this may be "simple".
Even luckier: I took a chance and restarted my server running the VM/CTs... and they all started.
I broke my own rule and jump on the recent update and it hit me in the face:
I have a cluster with 3 Proxmox servers (pmx1 & pmx3; pmx2 used just for quorum)
The sequence used to upgrade was:
I upgrade pmx2 (the one just for quorum, it doesn't run any vm) and reboot
Migrate all vms...
Good catch, at work I use a segment as 192.168.22.0/24 but at home I only use the segment of the cable modem 192.168.1.0/24
The laptop have 2 network interfaces (lan and wireless); I'll try to create the* right bridges, so I can go with the laptop to both places.
I want to learn/practice more about Proxmox using a laptop (Lenovo) with not a lot of resources:
1 SSD of 240GB, 4 GB RAM
I want to install Proxmox and a light DE like XFCE, so I can work with one or two VMs running (not at same time).
Then I want to practice the backup and restore...
I have a two canvas blocker addons enabled, when I disable the console works again.
I was using this addon for months without issues in FF+Proxmox until now.
I re-enabled one of the addon and it works, I leave this post just in case.

It was working a few moments ago on the console, I...
Thanks a lot t.lamprecht,
Today I'll schedule the server restart. (I was waiting to read an answer for this)
I wonder, if in the Proxmox's forum, apart of posting our issues, exists some kind of announce for upgrades/updates with notes before this kind of issues appear, so we can read before to...
