  1. Disk suddenly showing empty but cannot be used

    Recently the primary non-os disk for my proxmox install is showing as 100% free despite also showing it contains several hundred GB of data on it. Any VM that attempts to boot that was on that disk is unable to boot. And attempting to create a new VM using that disk also fails. I'm suspecting a...

  4. Multiple clusters use same Ceph RBD storage

    Hi, I want multiple Proxmox clusters to access the same Ceph RBD storage. IMHO this should be possible, but without manually choosing VM IDs in both clusters there would be collisions for disk names. Are there options to avoid this with either defining a custom disk name template (preferred) or...
  5. [SOLVED] How to add a virtual disk to VM via command line qm set?

    Hi, maybe a very simple question but reading https://pve.proxmox.com/pve-docs/qm.1.html I didn't understand how to use the qm set command for adding a second virtual disk to an existing VM. What I'm looking for is the equivalent to VM Management -> Add -> Hard Disk -> (default settings: SCSI...
  6. [SOLVED] Samsung SM883/PM883 SATA SSDs for ZFS RAID1?

    So far I've read the Samsung SM883 would be great in general. Would that be so? There are also PM883s and cost 50% compared to the SM883. Are they both do their job, without queuing a regular (VM) Windows 10 update for example? I've been using 2 PNY CS900 and they hit the limit pretty fast...
  7. [SOLVED] Disk usage different than VM usage

    This vm 109 has a 480GB disk and the lvs command returns saying that it is using 51.52% (247.3 GB). But when I access the vm and run a df -h it says it's only 87gb. Why is this happening? root@pve:~# ./discos df -h ######################## Filesystem Size Used Avail Use% Mounted...

  9. Import to 'local' or 'local-zfs'?

    I created a cluster and imported several vms from an esx server. Then I created one vm and all went fine so I then imported some from esx. When I did that, I imported to local-zfs and can see them on the drive; /dev/zvol/rpool/data/vm-100-disk-0 /dev/rpool/data/vm-100-disk-0 However, I am...

  11. PVE 7.1 with zfs - best practices for Windows VM hard disk

  12. [Suggestion] Comment/Description field to accompany VM disks?

    Hi, Wasn't sure whether to post here or create a GitHub issue. Whilst managing VMs it's generally a hassle to cross-reference disk IDs all the time and I can imagine lead to people accidentally deleting the wrong disk - especially when more than one disk is on the VM with same pool/capacity...
  13. [SOLVED] ZFS raid1 with VM-disk filesystem question

    Proxmox is using a ZFS raid1 storage. On there, a disk has been created for a VM. This disk is currently formatted as ext4. Does that make sense? I guess its up to me. I'm just double checking. I might format the disk to ZFS, since it has the ability to check integrity.

    I'm having really poor performance when copying data from one physical USB-C disk to another physical USB-A disk plugged into the same Proxmox VE-system. The rsync below is only at 0.85kB/s. Filesystems are both ext4 and the disks are created as VM-disks: directories and raw. In the VM doing...
