    PVE6.0-5: Corosync3 segvaults randomly on nodes

    Hey guys, we updated from PVE5 to PVE6 recently and noticed that nodes on our 4-node cluster leave randomly. Checking pvecm status states that CMAP cannot be initialized, so I had a look at corosync on the failed node only to learn that it obviously segfaulted. This happened on 3 of 4 cluster...

    Corosync 3

    Hi, Corosync 3 doesn't use multicast anymore. It uses unicast. Ok, so I guess the cluster traffic should grow a lot for clusters involving more than 3 nodes ? Thanks in advanced, Antoine

    [SOLVED] Qemu/disk migration network. Is it "Corosync/cluster" network, or native bridge?

    /etc/pve/nodes accidentally deleted

    Hi, The title says it all, I've mistakenly rm -R /etc/pve/nodes on a quorated PVE 5.4 2-node cluster. The cluster still runs happily, and pvecm status looks fine and all. But corosync did its job thoroughly removing this directory from the two nodes. I guess the configuration is still in RAM...

    Corosync 3.x: Multicast (for now) obsolete, use of Unicast (or knet) is reccomended

    I've been discussing this with corosync developers and they've told me this: TLDR: Multicast was only reccomended for corosync 1.x, because unicast was not tested yet For corosync 2.x, they reccomend to use unicast (Proxmox currently uses...

    Replacing PVE node in cluster, new node loses quorum

    Hi, We're having some problems replacing a PVE node in a cluster. These are the steps we've taken so far: Turn off pve03 (out of 3). From pve01, remove pve03 from the cluster with: pvecm delnode pve03 Unrack the hardware. Mount a new server to become the new pve03. Perform clean install of...

My dream setup would be...
