    autoinstall: creator's host/nodename hardcoded in autoinstall-iso?

    Dear Proxmoxers, I thought I could run some kind of pve-autoinstall-iso-creator-machine, that generates autoinstall-iso files for various PVEs, until I noticed: Installing an auto-install-iso (generated on e.g. hostname "") on another machine its host/nodename is...

    PVE nodes with DHCP assigned IPs and hostnames

    can't access with hostname after expanding drive

    Hi everyone, a while ago I switched from a 500GB SSD to a 2TB SSD and expanded the drive and both local and local_lvm.

    Any known issues with rebuilding a host in a cluster and reusing the same hostname?

    I have a 4-node PVE cluster, and one of my nodes needs to be re-built from scratch (I'm re-arranging how the ZFS pool is allocated and rebuilding some of the VDEVs, including the rpool partition). This host's hostname is embedded across various maintenance scripts which I use, so it would be...
