    Problems with Proxmox VE 8.1-1

    I'm not really looking for support here because I have everything working now with 8.0 and that's enough. I'm more writing as a 'bug report' of sorts. I have purchased a new box intended for use as a router/firewall/etc with Proxmox VE at the top level. i7-1265u, 64Gb DDR4-3200 RAM, 1Tb main...

    [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).

    Question regarding local name resolution in Proxmox VE

    I would like to have Proxmox resolve its local name itself, without querying an external DNS. A (common) Debian system should actually be able to do this. However, my PVE (a Debian "onTop" installation) doesn't do that. My PVE has (as an example) the following names in the "/etc/hosts" are...
