  1. Query: LXC Fails to start at boot / despite auto-start setting / starts fine by manual intervention after.

    Hi, I am curious if anyone has seen this sort of behaviour before? I have a proxmox host I setup a few months ago. Runs nicely, it seems. There was a hurricane/power outage this past weekend. Proxmox rebooted cleanly, and one of two VMs on the host auto-started correctly at boot. The one...
  2. NFS mount Frustration (500 not online)

    Hi, I have a 'fun' question. I am trying to mount NFS export to a proxmox host. They are both in 'public' (OVH) hosting so I've setup firewall rules on the NFS server to restrict access to NFS server suitably / allow access only to this client /and restrict ports used to simplify firewall...
  3. HW Raid performance query: LSI 3008

    Hi, I wonder if anyone has experience and can comment maybe. I've just spent some time reviewing a pair of lenovo servers, which have this HW Raid controller. 2 x identical nodes in a small proxmox cluster, proxmox 5.Latest. There is no problem with the controller being recognized and...
  4. LizardFS / Comments req (Modest size cluster HA Storage options) ?

    Hi, I am curious to ask if anyone can comment. I'm looking at setting up for a client, a modest sized Proxmox cluster. It will be running on OVH hosted environment, ie, we have access to various pre-configured server builds and my goal is to get a config which optimizes (monthly spend, features...
  5. Feature Request to Proxmox Dev Team?

    Hi, I am not sure where to submit a request like this so thought I would post it here. I hope that OK. This is I think a minor GUI tweak, maybe might be considered of use/good? Right now in web GUI for 'hardware' on a KVM Virtual Machine, hard drive size is shown for attached hard drives but...
  6. Q: Win10Pro VM Guest install / "Bios" Activation key?

    Hi, a 'fun' question I wonder if anyone has experience with. I'm setting up a small 'lenovo mid-level workstation' as a small on-prem server for a client. They need 2 x small VMs, one will be a linux ClearOS "NAS Fileserver" and the second will be Win10Pro for running Sage Simply Accounting...
  7. Query re: "normal" Swap use behaviour in Proxmox / Latest

    Hi, I've got a Proxmox host running (OVH "template deployed stock proxmox latest" (currently is displaying in webUI, Virtual Environment 5.2-7) - it has 8 HT Xeon cores / 32gb ram / pair of 2x2Tb Sata drives in SWRaid1. Pretty typical OVH box. I have about a dozen LXC based VMs running, and...
  8. LXC VMs / Packet loss weirdness

    I'm running a 'current latest' proxmox (OVH Server stock install) 5.2-7 which has about 10 x LXC VMs on the physical host. Initially it was setup with ~5 VMs and then I added 6 more roughly a week ago. 5 of the 6 new VMs were deployed using a template/copy made from a slightly older proxmox5...
  9. e1000e NIC 100 vs 1000 connection on Prox5.Latest

    Hi, I am curious if this sounds vaguely familiar to anyone else. I recall I had an issue with e1000 driver a few years ago but I can't recall seeing an issue like this for quite a while. I've got a machine at a client SMB office, running proxmox with a couple of VMs. It is a 'entry level'...
  10. Q: Upgrade Proxmox CLUSTER 4.0 to 4.4 (latest)

    Hi, I have a bit of a question, wonder if anyone can comment. I've got a 3-node Proxmox cluster that is running version 4.0.57 as the 'before' state. Tonight I planned to do updates and reboots on all nodes, as follows; - live migrate VMs off Node3->Node2 - apt-get update; apt-get...
  11. Q: Access to VM IO performance #s ?

    Hi all, just a small-fun question (?) maybe. I note in Proxmox webUI, since (a very long time now) we have easy access to "Disk IO" metrics, that are typically rendered as a 1-hour graph (RRD style) when we are in the 'summary' view of a VM. (please see small attached "metrics" screen grab to...
  12. ProxVE4.2 and DRBD9 3-node setup - misc query

    Hi everyone, I am setting up a test environment for a client, to see if it is feasible for production use. So far it is 'very good' after a certain amount of time-effort-modest-frustration (learning new setup and so forth). Briefly the environment is - 3 servers at remote data centre, no...
  13. New ProxVE 4.2 - Thin LVM - upgrade:deploy:migrate query

    Hi all! Just wanted to ask, is there any info available on the new feature in the latest release of proxmox 4.2 just announced today, regarding Thin LVM? Specifically: -- I've got a small proxmox cluster using shared fibre SAN storage array with LVM, pretty classic deployment for shared...
  14. LSI Raid Prox4/Jessie - preferred install method hint ?

    Hi, a fun small question (I hope). In past I've used the lovely 3rd party repository, http://hwraid.le-vert.net/wiki/DebianPackages in order to get LSI hardware raid card health monitor and status and email notification in case of disk fail / bad events. It seems that now with Prox 4.X based...
  15. Q: more verbose logging, intermittent crashing Proxmox host, any suggestions?

    Hi all, this may be a bit out-of-scope (more of a linux-y question than Proxmox) but just in case. I've got a modest sized proxmox 2-node cluster recently deployed (various months ago) for a client, -- new supermicro gear, nice modern CPU and lots of CPU and ram (48 HT-CPU cores / intel xeon...
  16. Q: "qdisk" events logged in /var/log/messages - significance / possible to address ?

    Hi, a 'little question' I wonder if anyone can comment, I've got a pair of ProxmoxVE hosts deployed recently in 2-node config which use an iSCSI target on another device to give 'quorum' as the '3rd data point' for the config. (ie, in case one host goes offline we still have quorum on the...
  17. Q: Monitor LVM Shared SAN storage free space via snmpd - thoughts/hints ?

    Hi, this is maybe not really a proxmox question, but because of how LVM is used by proxmox from shared storage, the first 'generic' (Cacti:Snmpd) based answers don't seem relevant. I have just setup a 2-proxmox-node cluster deployment with some large shared FCAL attached disk volumes; which are...
  18. Q: 2 node cluster - no HA - quorum iSCSI target - issues / help request

    Hi, I wonder if anyone can comment. I am trying to setup a modest size proxmox cluster, -- 2 physical nodes running proxmox -- to avoid problems with Quorum if one node is offline, I wanted to use a small dedicated shared iSCSI target as the 'quorum disk' for the 3rd vote 'tie breaker'. -- to...
  19. Q: Proxmox 2-node cluster with Shared LVM "SAN" (Fibre) Storage array - max vol size?

    Hi all, quick question (maybe ?) I am in the process of configuring a storage array for use with a new build proxmox deploy for a client. - 2 physical nodes running proxmox, latest version, local modest size hardware raid storage for base install of proxmox - 1 disk array with ~24Tb usable...
  20. Q: Upgrade 3-node Cluster (PVE 2.3->3.2) Sanity check

    Hi, I'm trying to plan for a possible Proxmox upgrade, - cluster of 3 proxmox hosts (Intel modular server, proxmox cluster, have shared LVM storage from modular server chassis for VMs - kind of a "SAS attached SAN") - works fine but version is starting to become concern, ie, upgrade to PVE 3.X...
