  1. [TUTORIAL] Create a Proxmox 6.2 cluster GlusterFS storage

    See references [1] and [2] Do the following on all nodes unless stated. (a) Prepare disks (Assumes the disk is /dev/sdd) fsidk -l /dev/sdd pvcreate /dev/sdd vgcreate vg_proxmox /dev/sdd lvcreate --name lv_proxmox -l 100%vg vg_proxmox mkfs -t xfs -f -i size=512 -n size=8192 -L PROXMOX...
  2. Storage types for HA and live migration

    I have configured a 5 node PVE cluster with VMs accessible via NAT. I created ZFS storage on each PVE node (using some of the hdisks) for VM disks. I then set up VM replication from node 1 to 2, 2 to 3 ... 5 to 1 every 10 mins and using HA could get VMs to migrate and (re-)start automatically...
  3. VM / VM template local-lvm: Which disk is it using?

    I have created some VMs and VM templates on a PVE node for testing. The node has a SSD and 4 SAS drives. I installed PVE on the SSD drive and assumed when i selected local-lvm as the VM disks the VMs would all use the SSD for storage too. When I look under Node > Disks now I see that the usage...
  4. Cluster: Host node ZFS redundancy with additional (storage) replication for VMs /CTs - best practice?

    I am looking at the option of configuring a PVE cluster with storage replication (using a ZFS pool across the cluster nodes) so VMs and CTs can be moved to another node if the original host node has a failure. This is probably a PVE independent question but: when I create the initial ZFS...
  5. [TUTORIAL] PVE 6.2 Private VM (NAT) network configuration setup

    I had been trying to create a private IP (NAT) setup for my VMs and managed to do it as follows, heavily relying on infomation in reference [1]. I have re-titled this as a Tutorial now: 1. In the Proxmox web interface for the host network configuration create a second bridge: vmbr1 with IP...
  6. Pseudo HA using VM Replication in Proxmox

    I'm exploring methods to provide redundancy/failover for VMs running on a PVE cluster. I am wondering if, using the Proxmox Replication functionality I can: 1. replicate a VM on Node1 to another node (say Node2) in the cluster at a certain time point T, 2. automatically or manually start the...
  7. Proxmox CEPH and VM cluster network configuration

    I have got 5 nodes with 2 physical NICs connected on each. I have assigned each node (management) a public IP address on my network (10.140.79.X) using the default Proxmox setup and created a Cluster. I plan to create a second bridge for private network for VMs. I also want to install CEPH to...
  8. Proxmox cluster: how to configure network for VMs

    I am new to Proxmox and wondering how best to configure a network on a cluster so that the VMs are acccessed via the physcal (host) node IP addresses. i.e. I don't want to take up lots of IP addresses on my network so ideally there will be a bunch of VMs on a private network and they can only be...
  9. [SOLVED] The installer could not find a supported hard disk (Dell R620 / H730 PERC Mini)

    I have tested out Proxmox (most recent release) using nested virtualization and now want to test it on a physical node: a Dell R630 server which has a SATA and 2 SAS drives installed. I create a bootable iso on a USB drive (DD mode) and booted to this and then selected the option to install but...
  10. Internet connection through a proxy / manual Ceph install possible?

    I connect to the internet through a proxy which (I don't have control of) and I've tried setting through the Proxmox web interface: "Datacenter" > "Options" the correct proxy as I have used elsewhere i.e. with format http://<username>:<password>@<proxy_ip_address>:3128/ but when I try to...
  11. [SOLVED] Can access proxmox web interface from Ubuntu/Firefox but not Windows 10/various browsers

    My management node was configured with FQDN/static IP and all other network settings correct and have tried to access the web interface but cannot access from two other (tried so far) Windows 10 systems on same network (using either Firefox / Chrome / Internet Explorer and Edge). Using 'curl'...
