    Disk space usage query

    Hi all, I'm fairly new here, I've been using Proxmox for a while now and pretty much got it running as I'd like with multiple VMS over 2 nodes. I have one query which I can't seem to get an answer too. When I setup a VM, I may allocate it say, 500GB, it will only actually be using 100GB...

    [TUTORIAL] Adding Full Disk Encryption to Proxmox

    If you want to encrypt your data, the best way is usually to start at the lowest layer possible to get as much data encrypted as possible.

    [SOLVED] local-lvm getting full.

    Hi, my local-lvm is almost full and I don't know what to do to fix this. I still don't fully understand what local-lvm is or how it works, compared to "local" (which is cleared with no issues). I tried fstrim on all my VMs and Containers. That only freed about 10 GB out of what's being used -...

    New to Proxmox - Issues with ZFS & local-lvm

    Hello Forum, I have recently started to experiment with VM's and Proxmox. I set up my first node on an old gaming system. I had 3 different drives (1 x 240gb SSD, 1 x 2tb HDD and 1 x 1tb HDD) and I managed to set up multiple VM's perfectly fine). I began to investigate what Proxmox could do...

    [SOLVED] Accidentally deleted Volume Group. Need Help readding it

    Hello all, Dumb here! ;) Long story short, I have added a new SSD as a LVM, but I wanted to create a LVM-Thin instead. So, I migrated all my VM disks to another storage LVM, wiped the disk and created a LVM-Thin. After that, I migrated all my VMs back into the new SSD. Then, comes the GENIUS...

    [SOLVED] lvm.conf filter for when we use rbd in the hypervisor and lvm inside virtual machines

    Hello, I post this here just in case it helps anyone else. I am using ceph rbd to store the disk images for my virtual machines, and some of the virtual machines use lvm inside their own virtual disks. When I start such virtual machines, proxmox's lvm scans their volumes, and these volumes...
