  4. [SOLVED] Extend VM drive when linux FS is first entry

    Hello, My VM has run out of storage on its virtual drive. I went to extend the drive in proxmox, then I realized I would have to extend the partition in the VM as well. The problem is that the linux file system is the first partition on the drive with the swap and extended, so I cannot just...
  5. Disk partitioning

    Hello. A while ago, when i set up proxmox on my HP ProDesk 400 G4 Mini (https://support.hp.com/us-en/document/c06047054), i specified the HDSIZE on installation. I thought the 50 GBs from my 256 gb SSD would be enough and the rest of the space i would use for VMs. Now i'd like to resize the...
  6. [SOLVED] iscsi direct lun: vm has wrong partition layout

    I am currently setting up iSCSI storage with direct LUNs. However, VM does not detect any partition (the LUNs already have data on them). I experimented and found that if I create a MBR table (rather than GPT) with a single partition, the VM detects the partition but with an invalid size. Host...

  8. Best practice for setting up a Node with only one drive?

    I have set up a Datacenter Cluster with two nodes and one Backup Server with a reverse proxy and several webservers, each on its own VM. Each node is running on a re-purposed embedded firewall device with only space for a single 512G drive (a M.2 SSD). The Proxmox Backup Server is running on a...

    Hallo zusammen, mein Server (HP Proliant 360 gen8) bootet nicht von seinen Festplatten, wenn der RAID-Controller im "HBA-Modus" betrieben wird. Sprich : ich kann nicht von Festplatte booten, wenn ich aus dem "RAID-Modus" raus bin.. Nun zu meiner Frage: Der Server bootet aber von USB/bzw...

    Hi, I am currently switching to a new personal home server, using Proxmox VE, v7, with several VMs/CTs in the future. Hardware: Barebone, 16GB RAM, and one 2TB SSD (and no other drives). This is how the disk looks like: root@pve:~# lsblk NAME MAJ:MIN RM SIZE RO TYPE...
  11. [SOLVED] Vm can't create any partition

    Everytime I tried to install Debian or Ubuntu server in a vm (that would be my first one) everything goes well until it's time to write the partition unto the disk and create the filesystem (even with the whole disk on ext4 or ext4 +swap) And on debian it says "The ext4 file system creation in...
  12. Increase Partition size

    Hi guys, I recently bought a server on which I run Proxmox for virtualization. First I installed Proxmox directly on my 1TB SSD, but then realized that I was losing almost 100GB for the "local" partition, but I wanted to use the fast SSD storage for the "local-lvm", i.e. the VMs themselves...
  13. Boot Laufwerk verkleinern oder neuen Node erstellen?

    Guten Abend :) ich habe so das kleine "Problem" dass ich in meinem Cluster einen Node habe, wo Proxmox noch auf einer alten 250GB HDD installiert wurde und das möchte ich gerne langsam ändern. Früher bereits gemacht von einer kleinen auf einer größeren Platte mittels Acronis. Jetzt hab ich...
  14. TASK ERROR: command "blkid" "-o" "export" "/dev/sda1" failed - status code: 2 - no error message

    I've just installed PBS and I'm trying to create a Directory on my 10TB Seagate IronWolf drive. Unfortunately, right when I'm issuing the create command, this happens: TASK ERROR: command "blkid" "-o" "export" "/dev/sda1" failed - status code: 2 - no error message Obviously, if I look into...
  15. Default install size

    It seems as if the default install sets local at 100 GB. That's way overkill for my scenarios. Is there a way to change that upon install or after install (before adding VM's)?

    When trying to patch a kernel an error message always comes up saying root partition is out of space. Is there a way to safely recover space by clearing any unneeded files? Up until now I have always deleted the default lvm and extended the root partition but I’m wondering if there is a more...
