    Proxmox VE 7.3: Resize disk of running instances with disks in iSCSI storage

    Hello, I have read a similar post with detailed step about that, the main difference is that each of my VM disks is a single LUN (not a large LUN that stores raw or qcow2 disk images). I can: - Resize the disk on the SAN host - Rescan iSCSI session and upgrade multipath size on the proxmox...

    I am trying to get my Proxmox VE 7.3-4 setup with iSCSI and CHAP. (Without CHAP was easy.) I have multiple iSCSI shares with different CHAP username/password combos. I see whispers that this should be possible, but nothing for multiple username/password combos. Any one have any information?

    migration path from ZFS via iSCSI to ceph?

    When it comes to storage, we have been using ZFS over iSCSI in our clusters for years. Now for a couple of new projects, we require S3 compatible storage and I am unsure about the best way to handle this situation. I am tempted to use MinIO, but I've read mixed reviews about it and Ceph seems...

    problems with shared LVM on top of iSCSI after dropping multipath

    Hello. We have a cluster of 7 nodes. VMs and LXCs are stored on external storage, on a shared LVM, via iSCSI. We recently had to move from a 2 x 1Gbps iSCSI multipath connection to a 1 x 10 Gbps FO ethernet (single link iSCSI connection, no multiphating). The iSCSI storage has 4 ethernet ports...

    iSCSI Live Migration Nimble

    Hi Everyone, One of my major clients is considering PVE but I've run into the same snag as earlier this year. The organization has several HPE Nimble SANs and they aren't going away as far as I can tell. HPE Nimble is block storage only, so iSCSI is basically the one and only solution...
