ProxMox Backup server is a thing of my dreams, I recently built this exact system to test with much smaller 240GB drives (Under 1TB) and did some testing adding to my clusters and it worked amazingly. I have since completely rebuilt the system as well as reinstalled PBS with the newer 4x 1.92TB...
Unfortunately, this was a mistake made by another tech, I'm just left to pick up the pieces, he had an SSD installed in a system, the SSD was run through a RAID card in RAID0, the SSD was then moved to a different raid card where the array was upgraded, then it was put onto an HBA, to no...
I'm fairly new to Proxmox and ZFS. As you can see in the screenshot below, I have set up 2x pools named 'storage' and 'vm'. In each pool, I have set up files systems with different configs for each filesystem.
In Proxmox my place to store backups is set up just as a directory under the...
I recently accidentally deleted some directories in my PVE while attempting to cleanup storage and disks. I've solved the issue of the VMs in my list (thanks, community!!!!), but now, my issue is that the directories are still listed in both my Server View pane and under...
I have an nvme pool that I want to use for
a) storing VMs
b) storing mails (by a mail server run in one of the VMs)
For this purpose, I have created, via command line, a ZFS pool with two datasets, "VMs" and "mail". (mail is obviously shared via nfs with a VM). I have then, in Proxmox GUI...
I have split 1 GB drive in two one for Disk Images,Container and one for backups and everything.
The partition is 500G but PVE only sees 50 something GBs just as much as the other partition that was created with the installation on the system disk.
PVE version is 5.4-13
Here is the...
After testing some new disk with ext and xfs, i end up with a Server/Disks/Directory with "/mnt/pve/test-disk /dev/disk/by-uuid/xxxxxx ext4 defaults"
This disk in now gone/formatted and replaced with xfs manually.
But this line in gui i cant find out how to remove. (its not in...
I wanted to add a disk, and primarily use it as a Thinpool, and I also wanted some directory storage for images and templates on the same disk.
The guide here shows how to do it: https://pve.proxmox.com/pve-docs/chapter-sysadmin.html#chapter_lvm
However its not as simple as copy and paste. You...
Creating a new Directory Storage config (via Node > Disks > Directory) where the config name contains a hyphen (such as `local-ssd`), results in an invalidly named Systemd mount unit.
# /sbin/sgdisk -n1 -t1:8300 /dev/sdb
The operation has completed successfully.
# /sbin/mkfs -t ext4...
I've installed PVE on a standalone node, not a cluster. The physical ssd is 232.89 GiB as viewed from "Disks" under my node (named PVE). During the installation process I/it created:
1. local (pve): Content = VZDump backup file, ISO image, Container tempate > Type = Directory > Size...
When i try to make a new directory storage , i find it's size 10MB , i don't know how to configure that,
that's what i set :
And that's my filesystems config
--- Physical volume ---
PV Name /dev/sdb3
VG Name pve
I would like some advise please.
I am looking after a few small networks, all are just single servers at multiple sites.
At the moment I am using Proxmox to Virtualise the servers and adding extra Hard Drives into the Machine and setting the extra drives up as Directories and backing up the...
