    issues getting corosync to work for the entire cluster

    Hello everyone, I currently manage a 19-node Proxmox cluster and I believe that during the weekend one of the nodes failed during the weekly VM backup job. Due to that event, the corosync service lost sync at cluster level and the nodes can't speak to each other (no quorum) and they have been...

    Designing a Proxmox HA cluster with 4 nodes on 2 remote sites - Quorum and impact

    Hello, we're planning to migrate our VMware infrastructure to a PROXMOX cluster in the next few weeks, and would like to take advantage of the zero licensing costs to create an HA cluster with shared, redundant storage on two sites. We have 2 datacenters on 2 different sites with a latency of...

In both location the proxmox running the router so the router is needed for the nodes to see eachother.

    Node Persistent when trying to Delete it

    I am trying to delete one of my nodes in my 2 node cluster. I have used the pvecm delnode [nodename] command and deleted the corresponding directory in /etc/pve/nodes, but the deleted node is still showing up in the WebUI. I saw in a separate post that some others have had to remove it from the...

    Cluster regularly losing qourum

    I have an 12 node homelab that is regularly losing quorum. I think it might be due to a combination of high bandwidth activities (e.g. backups to a separate PBS server) and corosync being latency sensitive. The 12 nodes are almost all 1L PCs (e.g. Dell and Lenovo tiny/micro form factors). I...

    2 node cluster with quorum - access to WebUI

    I currently have a 2 node cluster with one quorum device set up. In terms of high availability of the VMs, everything works fine when powering off one node. The only thing that I see in that failure event is that the WebUI of the second (available) node is not showing any content anymore. Is...

    Corosync Verständnisfrage (redundante Links)

    Hallo, bei einem 3-Node-Cluster (A,B,C) und corosync mit jeweils link0 und link1. In der Doku steht, dass bei gleicher Priorität Corosync-Traffic priorisiert nach der link-Reihenfolge geht (niedrigste zuerst), also link0, bei Ausfall dann erst link1. 1. Wenn beim Node A der link0 ausfällt, aber...

    Allow admin to configure required votes for quorum OR out of quorum behaviour.

    Hi, It would be nice to allow admins of a cluster to define either: - a minimum votes required for a quorum (yes, admins might be aware of pitfalls and are prepared to deal with consequences) OR - define behaviour when quorum is not achieved - current "stop everything and just sit there" is a...

    <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...

    [quorum] Quorum LARGE cluster minimum online servers? any workaround?

    Hi all, As I understands it, for a cluster to be accessible from the GUI, we need half of the servers running +1 I have a cluster of 10 servers and I find it pretty annoying to be forced to keep 6 servers On all the time. Is there a way to get only 3? Under low month workload I could keep...

    Qdevice for Non-HA cluster?

    So I'm pretty sure I know the answer. I'm building a very small cluster for now. Two nodes. One hosts the NAS and SAN and a few other 'infrastrcture-y' things. The other hosts most of the VMs that I want to boot *from* the SAN. I can manually migrate them from the service node to the infra...

    9 node setup - 4 without quorum, 1 run out of space in /boot

    Hi, This morning I found that one of my nodes had run out of space in /boot, I removed some old kernels but I can't start any VMs on the node which run out of space. There are 3 others that show as offline in the GUI but they are actually online. When I try to restart the cluster on the node...

    Warum drei Nodes für HA bei geteiltem Storage?

    Hallo werte Proxmox-Gemeinde, bei meinem vorherigen Arbeitgeber haben wir bereits 2 Proxmox-Cluster mit drei Nodes und via iSCSI geteiltem Storage aufgebaut. Den Satz "Man braucht mindestens drei Nodes für ein zuverlässiges Quorum" und ohne Quorum läuft der HA-Betrieb nicht habe ich quasi als...

    Could not log into web GUI while other node was shut down?

    I have a 4-node cluster with nodes A, B, C, and D. I recently had to take nodes A and B offline to install a new NIC in them. I wanted to watch their status on the web GUI of node C while I waited for them to boot back up, so after I shut down nodes A and B, I pulled up node C's web GUI. I was...

    How would Ceph/Proxmox handle a switching failure

    We've been looking at a new setup that has three nodes. They will be running Proxmox and Ceph in a hyperconverged config. Each node has theoretical switch redundancy using LACP. However, not for the first time our providers switching has had some kind of failure with a switch and LACP standby...

    Rogue Cluster Node

    Hello Everyone! I have a 4 server cluster scenario, that went running fine for 700+ days, but eventually we need to update it, mostly that we want to use PBS and since we are on version 5.4x we want to roll up the servers to version 6. I made an offline lab with the same configurations from...

    I have a three node hyperconverged cluster running PVE 6.2-6 and CEPH.

A Fencing message went out this morning about one of the...

    Last man standing

    Hi I would like to set up a cluster with 4, max. 5 Nodes. The catch is that during most times only one or two nodes will be running. In my attempts so far I had often had problems with not having quorum even when using a qdevice. The reason for the cluster is that if I need the extra power I...
