  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, thanks for the reply. Here is output: root@proxmox:~# /sbin/showmount --exports 158.99.209.99 clnt_create: RPC: Program not registered
  3. 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...
  4. 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...
  5. LizardFS / Comments req (Modest size cluster HA Storage options) ?

    Hi Guletz, thanks for the added detail. Much appreciated! I agree with your thought, ie, wrapping lizard inside LXC might add some delays due to 'added time for container startup' which makes me feel a bit uneasy about that approach. I think what might work most simply, is to run Lizard right...
  6. LizardFS / Comments req (Modest size cluster HA Storage options) ?

    Hi Alwin, I've done testing (2+ years ago) FYI and I had zero problems with Proxmox cluster on OVH dedicated hardware with the Vrack solution. I encourage you to read a bit about Vrack at OVH maybe before speculating further. (They do have fair bit of info on their website / Docs / FAQs / etc.)...
  7. LizardFS / Comments req (Modest size cluster HA Storage options) ?

    Hi guletz, many thanks for your feedback! If I understand correctly, you are using Lizard FS as a "VM storage" primary datastore for Proxmox, and it is working well for you in terms of reliability. May I ask for clarity. (a) were you using the proxmox nodes as pure Lizard clients, or do you...
  8. LizardFS / Comments req (Modest size cluster HA Storage options) ?

    HI Alwin, I guess for clarity. The environment would have dedicated 10gig "VRack" interfaces which are capped at 3gig throughput, if I understand the current OVH offer correctly. So - I am not sure if you would believe that 3gig dedicated interface can be sufficiently low latency and high...
  9. LizardFS / Comments req (Modest size cluster HA Storage options) ?

    I agree, asking "Why HA" is important. In this case I'm asking for feedback assuming proxmox HA is on the 'required features list'. Not so much that I agree with it being on the required feature list for this project, but that the client wants the feature absolutely, and it is not negotiable...
  10. LizardFS / Comments req (Modest size cluster HA Storage options) ?

    I forgot to say / can't edit my post (?) - The storage performance requirements are not 'heavy' - this is more about 'reliable HA performance with modest IO performance'. So we may in fact be ok with gig-ether connectivity between nodes for syncing storage / not requiring faster vrack than...
  11. 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...
  12. Feature Request to Proxmox Dev Team?

    sounds good. I will post a feature request formally to the bugzilla link you provided, and we'll see if any other feedback accumulates. Tim
  13. Feature Request to Proxmox Dev Team?

    Hi Alwin, thanks for the info. It wasn't clear to me how the 'size' info is reported when disks are attached in this view. I sort-of guessed it must be a semi-active process / because I know (for example) if you manually swap out one Virtual disk file for another "under the hood" (ie, via CLI...
  14. 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...
  15. Q: Win10Pro VM Guest install / "Bios" Activation key?

    Thanks very much for this info. That looks pretty straight forward to try. If I end up getting this machine / doing this setup for the client (project is not a 'go' yet) - I will followup on this thread to confirm how this worked. Worst case I will just buy a suitable Win10Pro license after...
  16. Q: Win10Pro VM Guest install / "Bios" Activation key?

    Footnote, with your keywords and a bit of google digging, I located this thread, https://lists.gnu.org/archive/html/qemu-devel/2011-03/msg03080.html and I think I start to see why this is an exercise in "not quite futility, but only for the enthusiast' ie, much simpler to just purchase a...
  17. Q: Win10Pro VM Guest install / "Bios" Activation key?

    Thanks for the reply. If you can point me to any hints on how to do the SLIC Table pass through from physical to virtual, that would be great. I am slightly confused how such a process can be time intensive (a few config stanzas for pass through in the KVM VM Config file most likely? But maybe...
  18. 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...
  19. Query re: "normal" Swap use behaviour in Proxmox / Latest

    Thanks very much for this feedback. Sounds like - things are managing themselves smoothly / and this is default-expected behaviour / not of concern. So that is good news. Many thanks, Tim
  20. 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...
