    Recover Data from Ceph OSDs

    Is there a way to recover data from OSDs if the monitors and managers don't work anymore but the OSDs still start up? Just for clarification: I don't want to rebuild the cluster I just want to copy data from the OSDs to another HDD.

    CEPH Monitor Issue

    I recently had to rebuild a failed Proxmox PVE node by reinstalling Proxmox, adding the node back into the cluster, reinstalling ceph, and bringing the OSD back into the pool. Up to that point everything came back fine. The problem is that the node failed unexpectedly and so is still listed in...

    reinstall ceph after pveceph purge

    Hi, After I installed proxmox I decided to tinker around with ceph. Some things didn't work out and I removed ceph from the proxmox node. After stopping all the ceph services I removed it with 'pveceph purge'. That worked! Now when I tried to reconfigure ceph I keep getting this error "Could...

    Ceph config broken

    Hi! So, I started to install and configure Ceph before I fully knew how I wanted to have it configured (mistake #1). Now, after following https://forum.proxmox.com/threads/changing-ceph-public-network.33083/ I've made some changes, but they're now really incorrect to the point where "monmaptool...
