    Proxmox VE API /api2/json/pools optional field "members" empty

    HI! I was trying to find out which pool is connected to a VM-ID by searching with the VM-ID. In theory I should be able to use the /api2/json/pools API call to return the pool-id and the data of it's members, where I could find the VM-ID and backtrace it to the pool. The documentation states...

    [SOLVED] Restricting pools to VM-ID

    Hello I wonder if it is possible to restrict pools which are made for structure and order as many users use the proxmox server for a wide variety of reasons to restrict a pool to range of VM-ID's. For example pool 1 can use VM ID's 100 to 199 and pool 2 can use VM ID's 200 to 299. It's not...

    Propagation of pool permissions to member VMs?

    Hi, I'm using the feature of granting permissions for groups on VM pools for the first time. There's one thing I don't completely understand: should pool permissions be propagated to member VMs ("propagated" in the sense of: being visible in VMs permissions)?

    Failed ZFS import at system startup

    I'll keep this simple as I can as I'm not to familiar with ZFS pools in general. So, I noticed that when I had my Proxmox server hooked up to a display, I received a message at boot complaining about some sort of zfs import failure regarding my "lxc" pool. Sure enough, I check in my syslogs with...

    ZFS Next Steps

    Long story short: My drive hosting proxmox died, reinstalled proxmox on a new drive and have that back up and running. Next step is to remount the zfs pool that had my 3 vm's on that. That was on two Western Digital Drives that are still healthy. I've done that but well I'm kind stuck on what I...

    Is there a process to add monitors to existing ceph pools?

    I'm curious if there is an actual process to add monitors to existing ceph pools? So far, the only thing I can see to do is to create a new pool with the desired monitors and then migrate the content from the old pool to the new one. Thanks in advance for your feedback... :)
