    Maximal disk allocation

    I am using proxmox to manage my virtual machines. When I create a new VM, I have to allocate some space on the SSD. For instance, I have a 240GB ssd and there is 1 VM using 120GB. Is there a way proxmox can automatically alert me if i try to setup a new 240GB VM on the same disk ?

    Cluster-wide template

    We have proxmox cluster with 3 nodes. We used to create VM template on each node and later creating new vms from those templates using "qm clone <template_vmid> <new_vmid>" In above case we need to keep managing 3 templates (as there are 3 nodes). So trying to see if there is way to have only...

    Status: io-error on first boot of any new VM

    I'm new to Proxmox, not new to Linux or VMs. Any time I start a new VM now, it freezes during the initial setup and Proxmox shows "Status: io-error". I only have a single LXC container and a single Ubuntu VM running right now. They definitely are not using the node's entire disk drive space, or...
