I am trying to setup the best minimum scalable HA setup and Configuration. I read the documentation on High Availability, however I have some questions that are not well discussed in the documentation.
I was thinking of starting with 4 servers:
2 x front end server that will use a central...
after backing up (proxmox backup function) about 120VMs in a 4-Node-Cluster via NFS, a few (~20)VMs shows the HA in error state. The affected VMs still running fine and there was no trouble at all while running the backup. All VMs are managed by HA.
Here are the notifications...
ich habe einen Cluster mit 4 Proxmox-Servern, je aktuelle und gleiche Version. Auf den Systemen laufen ua.verschiedene CT und VM mit Linux, die alle gleich mit HA eingerichtet sind. Nachts läuft das ganz normal Backup der CT und VM.
Bei drei Systemen (2 VM und 1 CT) auf verschieden...
I am curious about Your experience with backing up Zimbra.
I do weekly snapshot backups of our Zimbra server, but never needed to restore until today. I rsync those one day later to offsite.
A colleague of mine ran into some trouble when a hardware error rendered his backup hdd useless...
first of all thank you for the great software, we enjoy using it for more than a year now. Also sorry for any noob questions i will make. So we are using proxmox for our server without any problem and we are now thinking to make use of our old server as backup option. Our main goal is, in...
I recently migrated a physical IBM server to a proxmox VM
I would like to re-use the IBM RDX device with removable disks as daily backup target.
First of all, I mounted the /dev/sdd1 device into a /backup folder and configured as a storage entry (type Directory, VZDump selected)...
I have a little R410 with Proxmox 5.3 and 4 4TB spinners in a ZFS striped mirror config. There is currently only 1 Server 2016 VM running, and it is basically only acting as a fileserver. I thought that the 4 spinners in a striped mirror configuration would perform much better than...
my use case for Ceph is providing a central backup storage.
This means I will backup multiple databases in Ceph storage cluster mainly using librados.
There's a security demand that should be considered:
DB-owner A can only modify the files that belong to A; other files (owned by B, C or D)...
Hi, how to increase shutdown timeout on backup with 600 to 1200 sec, my vm does not have much time to turn off, as a result, there is no archive and vm is in turned off status.
windows server: 2008 r 2
qemu agent: 7.6.2
my backup log:
INFO: stopping vm
I have 2 Physical Servers each with ProxMox 5.3-6.
In each Server there is a 4TB HDD with Prox Mox installed.
In each server there is additional 2 x 4TB hard drives and 2 x 10TB hard drives.
VE01 and VE02 are in a cluster
At the moment there are 2 VM's on VE01. I will be moving one to VE02...
I noticed that the dump folder where all backups go requires and defaults to 777 permissions. Is there a way to remove the rwx permissions to "others" without disrupting Proxmox's backup jobs?
Can we specify which user on the host will be running the job that requires full access to...
I created a unprivileged container and created a user with ID 1003 (user1) in it. I wanted to map that user to a user with ID 200001 (user1) from the Host system, so I can attach a external hard drive and map it inside the container and administrate it from the Host with a meaningful user...
When a backup volume is created, it allows the setting of max backups in pmx4.4 as shown below.
In pmx5.x, when using a non-ceph backup location, the option is still there:
However, in when creating a cephfs backup volume, only one backup is stored and no option exists to specify more than...
I am having the same restore error in diferent machines I have tried to restore one backup. We had to make a fast backup after a CRYPTO infection. I shut down the the machine first and backup it up to an external hdd and restore a previous day full virtual machine. We have try to...
I've got a couple of Proxmox servers (single no HA) with SATA drives and getting a backup is a real pain.
It takes 50 minutes or so to get a 60-70GB of backup.
I'm planning to migrate a few of these servers into one new much more powerful server with the following drives/setup:
Please note that we have a backup scheduled for our VM's everyday. We realised recently that for one of the servers the backup logs says that the backup was successful but we cannot find the related vzdump file. Even when we take a manual backup the same is happening. Could someone please let...
I'm trying to create user who can manage VMs (all VM.* permissions) and can create sheduled backup jobs. I found by trying I need Datastore.Audit permission to see storage for backup and Sys.Audit and Sys.Modify to create backup jobs. But with Sys.Modify, I can also modify datastore...
