  6. best way to backup whole node "system" partitions (boot and lvm)?

    HI, I would like to be able to restore a pve node exactly how it is now, taking a full backup (boot and lvm partitions), to an external nas space. I would prefer a simple way, like booting from sysresccd or another live cd. I know a few methods (partimage, fsarchiver, dd..) that are easy to...
  7. forum idea: polls/threads about new/test releases, new/old features experience?

    Hi, would it be useful to know if (and how many) some new/test/old feature or release is working well for all users? I mean, tipically people (including me) posts here only when/if they have problems or wish to know how to do something, I guess. so, it could be perceived that a new/test/old...

  10. clone linux VM with virtual LVM disk

    If I create a KVM template of a VM (say, ubuntu server) which has its virtual disk configured as (internal) LVM and than convert it to a template, then I can clone it to get several other VMs based on this machine. Of course VM template internal LVM PVs/VGs/LVs all have their names and UUID...
  11. Found duplicate PV ?

    this problem is similar to that of some other user here, but maybe they come from different issues. I have 2 identical nodes, ibm x3650m2, with 20GB ram, 2x72 GB local disks (raid 1) Disk /dev/sda: 72.0 GB, 71999422464 bytes and both are connected to the same physical NAS: vm disks from both...

    Hi, Is a thing I never tried to do, but now I need a nas just to store backups (actually copies of), so I wish to experiment with a virtual freenas instance on a spare old server (cpu is one e3120, so kvm should work) Does anyone have pve guidelines/best practices? 32 or 64 bit...
  13. upgrade a 3.0 node to 3.1

    hi, in the wiki there are several sections like http://pve.proxmox.com/wiki/Downloads#Update_a_running_Proxmox_Virtual_Environment_3.x_to_latest_3.1 and others similar for 3.x to 3.2, or older versions but I guess if I follow that i'll get a latest 3.3, not a 3.1 or 3.2 1) is there any way to...

  15. kvm hotplug info

    Hi I've learned about the "hotplug" configuration setting (http://pve.proxmox.com/wiki/Hotplug_%28qemu_disk,nic,cpu,memory%29). Is there (or is planned) any web gui control for this switch in web gui? Or can this setting be reflected in gui, at least, to know if the vm has it enabled (or not)...
  16. "removed" LVM + iSCSI storage from web gui, VG and target still mounted?

    Hi, I just removed from the web gui all storage I had on a NAS, since I have to do some maintenance on it (all kvm/qt resources have been moved before to other similar storage, temporarily). From the cli, though, I see that the OS has not umounted/disconnected anything... ? neither the NFS or...
  17. temporarily shutdown nfs storage, best practices?

    Hi, I have two NAS, each serving both iSCSI and NFS to pve. I have to upgrade the oldest, and this requires a few (very slow) reboots, and upgrade must be made in several steps, 2 minimum. I already easily moved all RAW and qcow2 disks (live! thanks pve devs!), iso, template, backups to the...

  19. Is running pve inside openvz possible?

    It just came to my mind, maybe it is a stupid question, but is it possible? I know I can install pve in kvm guest, and I did it a few times for testing, but since pve over wheezy is supported, is it tecnically possible install pve over openvz debian container, and if not why, what is missing or...
  20. vzdump CT error "Too many levels of symbolic links" when one storage is involved..?

    I have a strange error for vzdump. I searched in past threads, and this is the only similar, yet unsolved, issue happened before to others: http://forum.proxmox.com/threads/9150-new-vzdump-behavior?p=51889#post51889 ...sorry, this is a long, quite detailed post... I did some "investigation"...
