I am currently trialling the QXL display adapter with 128MB memory.
UPDATE: The two VM's I set to use SPICE, went into a paused state an hour later.
Why is that?
Windows sleep settings, the QXL pack installs a version of the qemu guest agent which obviously exposes the power interface.
Running a small VDI environment with a selection of Windows 10 VM's. These are all accessed via MS RDP. They don't do anything particularly video intensive but since this is a for a remote teaching environment, a couple of the VM's do use classroom control software that monitors the...
Hi all, this has been a problem that I have seen in the logs for various versions of proxmox.
Task error apt-get update failed exit 100.... bla bla....
Its because I don't have a subscription for the enterprise repo. But this is a default install and I have not added the enterprise repo, only...
I have disabled hyperthreading on another identical box thats still in the dev lab and performance on VM's still seems sluggish.
Heres a pveperf output with an lvm disk mounted at /mnt/test

CPU BOGOMIPS: 598857.60
Just spun up a couple of new Proxmox boxes, these are Dell R920's with 4 x Xeon E7 4880v2's 15 cores each, so 60 cores + hyperthreading. 512GB RAM in the boxes, local storage is a 22 disk RAID 10 of spinners. No SSD's yet, but still not slow.
I have created 2 linux VM's and a windows...
Hi all, just curious as to my general performance on this new node. Without me telling you what the hardware is, how do these numbers look? And yes they have got spinning disks for the time being, not SSD's. But that will change.

How do I save my EFI boot information to the EFI disk so it is not lost on a reset of the VM?
EDIT: Looks like as long as the VM has an 'EFI Disk' and the EFI options are saved then this works. Note that if you detatch the EFI disk and reattach, it doesn't list as an 'EFI Disk'. Perhaps this is...
I have solved this. I added an EFI disk to store EFI boot info, changed BIOS to OVMF, added an EFI boot option in the BIOS to look at the ubuntu grub64 loader and it boots.
Process for migrating a GPT formatted Gen2 HyperV VHDX is as follows:

So I am getting closer. Converting from VHDX to RAW then importing has preserved the GPT partition table.
Now how to make the VM to a UEFI boot to this GPT disk? Whats the EFI disk in the GUI for?
root@proxmox01:/mnt/convert# gdisk -l /dev/pve/vm-101-disk-0

I used gdisk on proxmox directly and verified that the logical volume in local-lvm was indeed missing a valid partition table. The disk was supposed to be GPT, which it is as verified on the original server that I had to bring back up after this failed.
I imported the vhdx directly with qm...
Hi all, I am trying to migrate a 1.4TB HyperV VHDX disk from a Gen2 machine to a new proxmox server. I exported the VM in HyperV and copied it overnight to the proxmox box via SFTP/SSH. I then made a new proxmox VM with no disk then ran qm importdisk 101 /blabla/disk2import.vhdx local-lvm.
