I run pve 4.1-26 (kernel 4.2.6-1-pve) with 1 KVM guest (Windows Server 2008 R2).
I have a couple of USB dongles that must be passed through to the guest devices. The problem is that, though the dongles have USB interfaces, they are actually serial devices.
When I pass the USB...
I'm practically out of disk space on a Proxmox 2.x installation and I'm trying to backup the VMs on it onto a remote server. I attached a partition on the remote server to the Proxmox server with sshfs.
But everytime I run vzdump I get the message:
This applies to all VMs on the...
I'd just like to know if a pve cluster pools physical hardware resources such that VMs pull from that central pool, and not from any particular server?
For example, in a cluster with 2 nodes, each with 10GB of RAM, is it possible to create a VM with 15GB of RAM?
I've read the wiki...
The guest is running Oracle Linux 6. Let me see if I understand you: i) I don't need to specify the virtio network device when choosing the network adapter during linux guest setup, I may choose, say, e1000 instead; ii) then after the guest is up and running, I'll use the distro's package...
I just need to know if one needs to specifically install a KVM paravirtualized network driver inside a linux guest? Or is choosing the virtio option when selecting the network type sufficient?
I ask because I had to install the paravirtualized driver for windows inside my Windows...
that's now okay, but there's something I'm still not doing right.
I added the storage, as below:
But when I tried to create a container, I didn't get any options for the storage part:
Maybe I'm just stuck in the proxmox 1.x way of doing things:). What do I need to do to indicate where I...
Hello. I'm having trouble configuring storage on my box (running beta 3). The 'create' at the bottom right hand corner of the pop-up window stays grayed-out even after I fill-in all the values I should. And it doesn't matter what browser I use: firefox 3.6 & 8 and chromium. What could be wrong...
I decided to do a re-installation and I used the excellent tutorial at blog.shadypixel.com/how-to-shrink-an-lvm-volume-safely/ to customise the install (I really don't like how pve divvies up the hard disk). Now my setup looks like this:
i really don't understand how that happened. please find details of the container as displayed in pve's web ui: http://rapidshare.com/files/389037360/container_details.jpg.html
In any case, how do I resolve this issue, please?
Let me quickly say kudos to the PVE team for their consistent good work; its much appreciated.
I created a container (Ubuntu 8.04 LTS amd64) with 50GB of hard disk space (LVM-based), yet this is the output of 'df -h;:

I downloaded the debian lenny template and installed it and...I can't do anything with it! I've been trying to get it to acquire an ip address from a dhcp server without any luck.
Can anyone tell me how to configure networking (not venet) such that I can get this VM to access my...
I just wanna know:
i) is it okay to re-allocate how space is divvied up amongst the swap, root and data logical volumes (in the pve volume group) ?
ii) can i create logical volumes of my own?
iii) i tried creating a vm via the web interface and noticed that the hard disk was in qcow...
