  1. Proxmox VE Scheduled Shutdown of a Node (incl. active VMs)

    Hello, I am new here and just set up a Proxmox VE node to host things like pi-hole, wireguard and some smarthome tools. As I do not need availability of the system 24h, it would be nice to shutdown the system at a certain time. Wake up could be either arranged via BIOS of the computer (Esprimo...
  2. Shutting down/rebooting one node reboots the other. HA VM doesn't transfer.

    I realize this is my first post, because I tend to avoid asking questions if I can find the answer on my own. Currently I am unable to find a solution so: I was running one system with Proxmox and recent got some servers for cheap, so I decided to test out clusters and making my VMs HA...
  3. Automatisches Starten und Herunterfahren bei Untätigkeit

    Hallo, wo kann ich es denn eingeben, dass der Proxmox-Server bei der Unterschreitung einer bestimmten CPU-Last herunterfährt? Ich möchte den Server zum Spiele- und Programme-Streamen nutzen. Wenn dann niemand mehr darauf zugreift, soll er nach 15min. ausgehen. Wie ich eine VM automatisch durch...

    Hello! I've just upgraded to proxmox 6.1 and installed the latest Centos 7 template (centos-7-default_20190926_amd64.tar.xz). When I enter the LXC and try to shut the Centos 7 down, it just won't. ps aux shows: USER PID %CPU %MEM VSZ RSS TTY STAT START TIME COMMAND root...

  6. How forceful is shutdown -h ?

    Just wondering: If we run (as root) shutdown -h in the Proxmox shell and we have a couple of backups/snapshots which need another couple of hours until finished, will they be interrupted/fail by shutdown?
  7. VM Shutdown on PVE Host Reboot

    Good Day Everyone We have a standalone PVE host which, from time to time, and as expected, needs updates installed and a reboot if there are kernel updates. We have set the HA Settings under datacenter -> Options -> HA Settings to shutdown_policy=freeze. What I understand under this policy...
  8. Windows VM fails to shutdown from Proxmox web

    I can turn-off a Windows Server VM, but shutdown simply does not work. The agent is installed, so what is happening? The VM is Windows Server 2019. Any ideas?
  9. Cannot shutdown Windows or Linux guests...

    I'm having a terrible time with Proxmox not seemingly being able to shut down Windows (10 and Server 2012 & R2) and Linux (CentOS 6.10) guests. I'm not even sure where to start in terms of isolating where the problem might be. What should I do to ascertain what the problem here is?
  10. [SOLVED] PVE 5.3 and Mikrotik CHR VM 6.41.2: Shutdown issues

    I've been running a Mikrotik CHR VM version 6.41.2 for some time now, only for the record of using the embedded TheDude network monitoring package. Since I've been having problems with shutting the VM down before taking a backup from PVE, I've been searching for a way to notify the VM. This was...
  11. Guest with Fedora or Centos will not shutdown

    Hi all, I've noticed that I cannot gracefully power off any of my Centos 7 or Fedora 28 vm's with "right click -> Shutdown" from the WEB UI. If I do this, it's like I havent done anything and the VM just stays up. I've installed the Qemu drivers with "yum install qemu-guest-agent" and I've...
  12. Some windows server 2003 are shutting down automatically in Proxmox VE 5.1

    Hello, Since a few days, some mv WS2003 are shutting down automatically (not forced stops). The vm are shutting down as if someone pressed start, shut down. After that, when I start the machine I found in the event viewer, the next thing: Event ID 6008 "The previous system shutdown at Time on...
  13. Clean scheduled reboot

    What is the right way to do a clean reboot of the whole ProxMox Master node (e.g. after upgrade of pve-kernel)? For example, I wan't to do the reboot at 23:00 tonight. I don't think it's save, to do only an "shutdown -r 23:00" ?! I think the running VM's won't be shutdown in a clean way.. or am...
  14. Toshiba P50-B-10N not rebooting

    Hi there, I've been using Proxmox for a while now on different systems, but one of those seems to have trouble with the rebooting part. It works great, until I reboot the thing. Then it acts as if I would give it a shutdown command. It just powers of, and never comes back online on it's own...

    Guest has not initialized the display (yet)

    Hi, 4 HA Vms were not able to reboot properly this morning at 4:30 pm (reboot via cron). These vms are running Centos 7 64 bits with qemu-guest-agent (hosted by different nodes). Seems that my 3 nodes cluster is up to date : proxmox-ve: 5.1-25 (running kernel: 4.13.4-1-pve) pve-manager...

    Switch Stack replacement - What to do for a 3 nodes Ceph cluster

    Hi, I plan to replace a stack of 2xswitchs. A 3 nodes cluster (with dedicated lacp interfaces for vmbr0 and ceph) is connected to this stack. I guess I have to shutdown the entire cluster for doing this. What are your recommendation for doing this properly ? (Stop all vms, then what just...

  18. Note on CIFS mount

    So I put up a brand new PVE 4.4 and wanted to mount a CIFS/SMB share off of a Windows server. I made this note to do this from the last PVE: #mkdir /mnt/sambaspot #echo “//sambaspot.localsystem.local/misc2/vm-images /mnt/sambaspot cifs username=sambaspot,password=P@ssw0rd 0 0” >>...
  19. Possible to detect guest hangs in HA using Qemu Agent?

    Hi, In a 3 node CEPH/Proxmox 4 HA Cluster, I recently had a Windows 7 Guest VM hang (BSOD). As expected HA never kicked in because in proxmox' point of view the VM is up and running. I thought maybe the QEMU Guest Agent would help checking for hung VM's but when I checked the wiki page it only...
  20. DO VM's shut down with Proxmox server?

    Many apologies if this question has been answered already, I tried Googling to no avail. I want to set my cron to shut down (power off) my proxmox server at 7pm each day. Will a shutdown also trigger my VM's to shutdown cleanly? Or will is some further configuration needed to make this happen?
