  2. NVME over Fabric

    Hi We are using our Proxmox with a storage that connects over fabric using Mellanox driver We also use Nvmesh as our storage management software therefore we can see the volume as local and we are using it as a LOCAL ZFS file system , the problem is that proxmox doesn't see it as shared...
  3. Separate backup node - Storage system considerations

    Hello, I am running PVE Cluster, but without any shared storage yet, since the nodes are located in different data centers around the globe. Mostly the cluster works as a central management solution and useful GUI tool for VM non-live migrations. I am planning to install a separate node just...
  4. multiple NFS storage setup for HA cluster & simulate a failed node

    hi all! I have 3 nodes in HA cluster using Proxmox 5.4 . The nodes use the public IP for cluster communication and the private network for the storage network. Each node has an NFS storage shared with the other nodes. The disk in all 3 nodes are in RAID 1 (mirroring) (the reason i cant use ceph...
  5. Recommendations for Proxmox local Filesystems (2 standalone nodes maybe moving to cluster later)?

    Hi All, Proxmox seems to offer a multitude of options for filesystems on the local disk(s). I started off by installing the default options on my 1 Node standalone server and noticed it configured the local 500GB SSD as follows: local - Directory - 94GB: /dev/mapper/pve-root (according to "df...

  7. pve-cluster (5.0-34) New Features

    I noticed that there's a new feature under the pvecm command to add a qdevice. I have been using Proxmox at home and for clients in a single node local storage configuration for almost a year now, and have been dying to mess with a proper shared storage/two node HA setup. My dream setup would be...
  8. Using Windows share as ISO repo

    I just installed Proxmox, but have an existing Windows share that I'd like to use as my ISO repository. I've managed to get the share mounted in Proxmox via fstab via the line below.

    @proxmox Team @tom I directly opened a bugzill enhancement report to get this rolling as soon as possible. Should be relatively easy to implement and this could even be available within Q1 2019. https://bugzilla.proxmox.com/show_bug.cgi?id=2047 Thanks guys!
  10. Networking Options

    Hello, I've seen this being asked, but I'm unclear on the actual answer. I want to know how Proxmox separates it's networks, if it does. Is all this done on the management interface: Backups, Shared Network Storage, Live Migrations? Is there anyway to assign different nics for each of these or...
  11. [SOLVED] "Pull the plug" HA without downtime?

    I was wondering... The HA feature in proxmox ensures that a VM (or LXC) will start on another node in case a node goes down, but the machine will shutdown and will have to reboot on the next node. Would there be any way to ensure that the machine will instantly appear on the other node once its...
  12. [SOLVED] shared backup storage

    I have a 5 node proxmox cluster with ceph storage running a mixture of lxc containers and qemu vm's. I have an extra server I want to configure as a backup storage and to mount extra partitions on the containers. (To have some extra storage for tar backups). This server is connected to the...
  13. Question about choosing Proxmox (API + Shared storage)

    Hello. We are in the process of rebuilding our virtualization infrastructure to 4 servers and a SAN shared storage (iSCSI over 10Gbps) but we are not sure of what to use, we are hesitating between Hyper-V (Without SCCM) or Proxmox VE. We will have a mix of Windows and Linux virtual machines...
  14. Shared Storage for a PVE Cluster

    We are proving a proposal to a client and would like to recommend the best option to have shared storage for their cluster(s). I have been looking through the forum during the past couple of days and found several threads on this topic. Unfortunately, I have not determined that the most...
  15. IOPS saturation on Storage

    I have a HP P2000 G3 ISCSi shared storage atached to my proxmox cluster via LVM. When i move a vdisk from local lvm storage (local disk on the nodo) to the shared storage i have an IOPS saturation on it. I tried to limit the interface bandwith via the Datacenter.cfg file but the problem still...
  16. Share files between LXC containers

    Hi everyone, Short question: What is the best way to share files between several LXC containers? I have a Proxmox 4 cluster and a Proxmox5 (ZFS storage) cluster. In both of them, I would like to create a shared filesystem (NFS, ZFS or whatever...) and mount it into several LXC containers in...
  17. Poll: Ceph vs NAS (NFS) vs ZFS over iSCSI for VM Storage

    Question for the hive mind. I have 6x 960GB Samsung SSD (853t & pm963) drives 'left over' from an upgrade to bigger drives, and wish to use them for shared storage of fairly low I/O virtual machines. 1) All 6 Drives on NFS share from a FreeNAS (or similar dedicated server) with 96GB RAM + 2x...
  18. DAS Shared Storage mit Snapshots

    Hallo zusammen, ich bin vor kurzem günstig an 2 HP Server + eine MSA mit FC für mein Home Lab gekommen. Jetzt versuche ich mich ein bisschen ausserhalb meiner gewohnten ESX Welt fortzubilden und probiere mich gerade mit Proxmox. Soweit sieht das alles sehr vielversprechend aus, aber an einer...
  19. Live migration LXC

    Hello, I am serving a videoconference application and I want to compare the performance between VMs and LXC, specially in case of migrating the server. For VMs, I have an NFS server where I store the disk of the VM hosting the server. Now, I wonder how to set up the configuration of LXC to...
  20. Configuring shared storage

    I have already a cluster of 3 nodes and I would like to enable proper VM Live migration, i.e. unnoticeable downtime. Right now I have my VMs using local-lvm (LVM-thin) and therefore live migration is not allowed (you can use --with-local-disks but there's noticeable downtime). Could anyone...
