    Hello. So I've gone through what I think are the docs regarding PROXMOX and fibre channel presented LUN's. I'm using an older 3PAR 7200 in my lab, attempting to get shared storage between a PROXMOX cluster. So far, I have a fully operational cluster with a shared NFS volume, which performs...

    Several newbie questions regarding best practices on how to setup a iSCSI SAN

    Hello, we have recently installed a HP MSA 2040 to use with iSCSI. I am a total newbie in this field and decided to just try and learn stuff on the way.

    Hello, I'm in the process of setting up a HP MSA2040 SAN to work with Proxmox. As I just started using a SAN, I have a little over zero knowledge of these things, so there most probably will be errors in my setup (or terms I don't use correctly). Current status is: - MSA2040 is connected via...

    Migrating thin provisioned disks results in the transfer as if it's thick provisioned.

    If you have a thin provisioned disk (say 128GB), but the actual size of the disk is only 6GB after install, why does proxmox need to physically move 128GB of data when migrating a disk to another network storage location (even though the file is 6GB)? What is the limitation here? It does not...

    Is it possible: PVE + shared storage + HA + replication to remote site?

    All of my previous experience of PVE setups related to stand-alone hosts, and PVE is perfect for that. Now we want to connect shared SAN storage to several PVE hosts to have HA available. SAN (we rent it) seems to be FC connected. At the same time we want to have the same VMs copied...

    Hello! I have a small cluster with my VMs living on LVM over iSCSI on a hp msa2050 SAN. I built it back in January and it was nice and quick - didn't even bother with multipath or any tuning because even with 10+ VMs running, it was fast enough. I left it running, doing nothing, until this...
