  1. FreeBSD Guest - wrong ram usage

    Hello, Looks like PVE doesn't detect ram usage in FreeBSD properly, example - VM has 700 MB usage, PVE dashboard shows 1924. qemu-guest-agent is installed, however, looks like PVE doesn't use it to get the RAM usage: dommemstat is the command currently implemented in the qemu-guest-agent port...
  2. VM-Backup zu CIFS-Share auf TrueNAS-VM bricht ab

    Hallo Allerseits, Ich habe eine TrueNAS-Core-VM (Version: TrueNAS-12.0-U2.1, FreeBSD 12.2-RELEASE-p3) (mit durchgereichter 2TB-SSD) erstellt, um auf dieser via CIFS-Freigaben Dateien von anderen VMs (sowie Backups dieser VMs) zu speichern.

  3. FreeBSD + Virtio => Slow (5GBit/s)

    Hi, I know this has come up a bunch of times, but nothing metioned anywhere seems to work for me. I do have Hardware offload in freebsd disabled and I had it disabled on both bridge and nic of the host, but it did not change anything. No matter what I do I can't get more than about 4-5Gbit/s to...
  4. FreeBSD guests are challenging

    After the prior post on FreeBSD (OPNSense and FreeNAS) failing to boot due to hotplug being enabled there remain issues. Both install just fine and boot just fine. It is only after a while they become unresponsive. I have yet to find an indication or metric to watch to understand what is going...
  5. [SOLVED] FreeBSD guests boot fail

    initially my experience with Proxmox 6 was rather disturbing, eventually i resolved what caused these issues and proxmox works well for me now. Recently (yeah) though i took on myself to install FreeNAS and OPNSense which are FreeBSD based and both behave "weird". The vm config i use can be...
  6. Windows and FreeBSD guests: qcow2 vs raw?

    Recently my colleagues asked me to set up several Windows Server (they need both 2008R2 and 2019) and FreeBSD (10 and 12.1) on our Proxmox hosts. The host server is brand new server free of anything so we go with 6.2 install, and it has h/w raid with LVM and ext4 on it (yes, old-schooler, I...

    FreeBSD as VM?

    Hi, should I expect problems when running FreeBSD as VM? Serious bugs, performance issues, etc.? Or should it run fine like any Linux VM? Thanks
  10. Unable to boot ARM64/AARCH64 FreeBSD

    I have had success previously with creating and running ARM64 images (despite being slow). This is what I do normally (can't find the exact sources on the forum but all props to previous users!): Set `arch: aarch64` in config Set bios to OVMF Set display to serial0 Change all disks/drives to...
  11. [SOLVED] FreeBSD installer freeze

    Hello, I'm trying to install FreeBSD on PVE using a passed-through nVidia GPU. When I pass a KVM-modified rom file, or no rom file at all - the GPU brings the screen up but the installer freezes on EFI framebuffer information (see the attached picture). When I pass an unmodified rom - the GPU...
  12. ax88179_178a.c fixed for proxmox (e.g. use with FreeBSD / opnsense)

    by P.Steinberg WHY I DID THIS: Because in opnsense / FreeBSD Passthrough of USB3 ax88179_178a was a pain. Either only 100Mbit or not working at all. Figured out it must be a driver problem in PVE in connection with FreeBSD. THIS MOD works like the old driver in any Linux , but now also very...

  14. Proxmox-ZFS != FreeNAS-ZFS??

    Hallo. Ich hatte unter Proxmox einen ZFS-Pool eingerichtet und wollte testweise die Systemplatte gegen ein FreeNAS tauschen, um mir das System anzuschauen. Dabei stellte ich aber fest, dass ich den Pool, der unter Linux/Proxmox angelegt wurde, nicht ohne weiteres unter FreeNAS/FreeBSD...
  15. [SOLVED] Weird problem with imported ZFS disk.

    I come from Freenas and had a lot of data on a ZFS pool I created (2 x 8 TB disk) and now I migrated to Proxmox, when I did zpool import it all went without error and the pool showed up under Server > Disks > ZFS. But I noticed that it didn't appear in the left collom where all my other storage...
  16. Wrong memory usage on KVM VM

    Hi, I am using a pfSense 2.4 (FreeBSD based) virtual machine on KVM and I see a different RAM usage in Proxmox than in the VM itself. Proxmox shows more than 90% of RAM usage (~ 15Gb of 16 Gb): but both pfSense and FreeBSD are showing only 2% of usage: But the virtual machine is giving...
  17. VIRTIO Balloon with FreeBSD (OPNsense)

    Hi, I am running OPNsense in Proxmox and I would like to get the balloon driver working properly so I can get correct memory readings in Proxmox. Right now for example Proxmox reports 3.35GB/4GB while OPNsense itself reports only 740MB is used. I have searched a lot online and found some...

    Hallo. Ich versuche, FreeBSD 11 zu installieren, soweit alles kein Problem. AutoZFS, wird installiert, dann die Frage nach dem root-Kennwort. Leider ist ab diesem Zeitpunkt keinerlei Tastatureingabe mehr möglich. Ich habe das mit VNC und auch mit SPICE versucht, aber alles ohne Erfolg. Hat...
  20. best practise for ZFS over iSCSI? (FreeNAS)

    Hi, I guess ZFS over iSCSI would be better than just use iSCSI share + LVM on top of the iSCSI share, since it gives the benifit of easy snapshot and clone right? So I have a new installation of FreeNAS to provide iSCSI. Is it best to use a new zvol and device type extend or a new dataset...
