    HA Cluster Replication Question

    Hello, I would like to set up a Proxmox HA cluster with 2 nodes. I can't use Ceph with only 2 nodes, so I wanted to try replication. With replication, you can set the container to be replicated every 15 minutes, for example. But then I asked myself a question: If my container is running on...

    [SOLVED] Proxmox local-lvm stops when 2 servers in a cluster of 3 dies?

    [SOLVED] What happens when one of the raided disks dies in a 3-server HA system?

    Indeed, Proxmox will not work when 2 out of 3 disks die in shared storage. My question is what happens when 2 disks in servers are RAID 1(shared storage) and one of the disks from two servers die? Will the Proxmox server use the raided disks or will it die?

    [HA] Cluster Resource Scheduling - filling in the missing pieces (from the docs)

    I have read the docs on HA top to bottom and back to top: https://pve.proxmox.com/wiki/High_Availability I can't get my head around the resource scheduling, because: "The cluster resource scheduler (CRS) mode controls how HA selects nodes for the recovery of a service as well as for migrations...

    2 Node HA with external QDevice

    We are currently running a single proxmox server to host our VMs, and I would like to build some redundancy. I was thinking of ordering an identical spec server to basically have a mirror. We also have some old servers laying around we can use for the quorum as I've read that you need 3 servers...

    iSCSI, LVM and HA confusion

    So I have a simple 3-node Proxmox lab + Synology NAS. My goal is to be able to build images using Hashicorp Packer and create VM's using Terraform declarations based on those images later. As far as I understand in order to create a VM from an image the storage of this image must exist on a...

    I have a Cluster of 3 and would like to migrate them. However we found out that it just creates a lot of dublicate disks. So I have been migrating a TestMigrationVM around all 3 nodes. I would like to post the Output of a Migrationg which takes really long for just one disk of 8GiB. I have no...

    Does cronjob work when quorum is not available?

    Hello, I have a three node cluster (n1, n2, n3). n1 and n3 are always running, n2 is kind of a cold standby. I just wrote a short script, where n1 or n3 are powering n2 on, when each other node is not available. It's my intention to have a valid quorum (2 of 3). The script works perfectly when...
