  1. [SOLVED] [HELP] PVE can not detect all the ram (128G RAM only detects 64GB)

    Hi, everyone. I got an incomprehensible problem in using PVE. My server has installed 8*16 128G RAM, I am confident that the RAM is not broken and that it is correctly inserted. Because both the bios and the BMC can recognize 128G RAM. However, PvE cannot identify 128GB RAM and can only detect...
  2. <50% & Quorum?

    Hey all, I have a cluster of 7 SFF PCs running as a PVE HA cluster backed by NFS storage (on an 8th machine, also in the cluster). I'm on "time-of-use" electricity costs, and would love to be able to kill off many of the SFF nodes during "peak" hours to save on energy costs, or if compute power...

  5. Requesting Help with possibly destroyed PVE

    I created a TrueNAS VM on PVE1 and tried to add a PCI device to it. Specifically what I thought was my LSI HBA card (listed as Broadcom/LSI SAS2308 PCI-Express Fusion-MPT SAS-2) that my 8TB HDDs are connected to. Right after adding, I rebooted the VM and Proxmox stopped responding and gave me...
  6. My server (Dell powerge R820) after disconnecting it for 2 days, I can't start PVE.

    Hello, I was gone for 2 days from my house and that's why I disconnected the electricity from my R820 server, and now I'm back and I haven't been able to start the pve.

  8. 1984hosting ACME plugin not working (outdated + more?)

    For my internal PVE nodes I want to get ACME working. Since I'm behind a NAT firewall and the single IP's port 80 is not available, I'm trying with the DNS API challenge. Unfortunately, my own web hoster does not provide a DNS API, so I forwarded a subdomain to 1984.hosting, which has a built-in...

  11. GUI loads, but cannot see nodes or VMs (behind nginx reverse proxy)

    Hi, I have an issue where I am unable to expand nodes and VMs in the Proxmox GUI. I can only see the top level datacenter in the left drawer.

  13. Stopped receiving emails from successful backups or any communication altogether such as cron jobs.

    I'm wondering if any body else is having issues. I have stopped receiving notifications from PVE. Either through Outlook or Gmail accounts. Could this have to do with their emails becoming more secure? Or perhaps this is an internal issue? I would appreciate help. I think the latest email I...
