    Proxmox Backup Server Disk Expantion

    Hello Everyone, I have already a PBS (proxmox backup server) and I want to expand the disk, because there isn't enough storage on the VM. The problem is I expanded the disk +50GB on PVE but it doesn't expand on the VM itself and I can't figure it out why. I'm attaching photos to make it...

    Proxmox dashboard readings missleading

    I have two VM running on 256 SSD ZFS RAID 1. When looking on to Datacenter dashboard HDD size makes sense, but when looking in to PVE storage things are getting complicated to understand. For example local-zfs-pve with total disk size 130GB holds 2 VM total size 175GB ??? Any suggestion how I...

    De-allocation problem on host disk space using VMs with qcow2/vmdk disk formats

    If a VM is build using qcow2 or vmdk HDD format with size say 1TB and fill it up completely, it uses 1TB of Proxmox server disk space, but when you delete files from VM, it does not de-allocate HDD space and still 1TB of disk is used on Proxmox disks. I faced this problem on 4.0 and 4.2 PVE...

    Copy to ZFS, fstrim

    Hi all, I have two issues: 1. When I do a command like dd if=rawfile | pv | dd of=/dev/zfs-pool/vm-disks/vm-109-disk-1 to import 96 GB large disk to Proxmox (the disk is created with 96 GB size), the occupied ZFS space increases for about 188 GB. Is this normal behaviour? I have tried on two...
