  1. Encrypted SMB Storage

    Hello Proxmox Community, I'm just trying to mount my SMB/CIFS Storage for my backups. For this I rent a Storage Box at Hetzner, they offer SAMBA/CIFS and more but SMB is the only method Proxmox supports of them. At the bottom of the page...
  2. [SOLVED] Best practice for shares

    Hello Everyone, In my Proxmox server I have a SATA HDD with multimedia content. I didn't created repository or filesystem in PVE and managed my drive via an OMV VM, because I didn't want pvestat to block spindown the hdd because it's not often used. And I like the fact that I don't modify the...
  3. [SOLVED] Connecting storage from nodes over wan (no cluster,no HA)

    Hello, I've just set up my second Proxmox VE node at my home in my hometown. Since there are some files on Node 1 I'd like to transfer to Node 2, I want to somehow connect their fileservers (SMB) so that I don't have to use a VPN and a client computer/VM since the network is quite slow on Node...
  4. Proxmox, plex lxc, external windows drive for storage

    Greetings all! I am a huge newbie to the world of proxmox. I got into it to move my plex server, and Home Assistant server from windows VMs to proxmox running on a Dell Optiplex 7050 with 16GB ram and 256GB SSD. Hassos is running quite well! Right now I'm trying to setup plex. I have the...
  5. Sharing a host's folder with containers for read and write

    I am currently running into permission errors inside an Alpine LXC (using the template included with Proxmox 7.3) when trying (as root) to mount a folder shared on the Proxmox host. The error occurs for both SMB and NFS. Here is how it looks like from the client side: Alpine-CT100:~# cat...
  6. [SOLVED] How to automatically mount a SMB share on an LXC

    I have an Ubuntu LXC on PVE and I want it to mount automatically after a reboot to a Samba share because doing mount -a each time sucks. So I checked the SMB/CIFS box and as I said I can access the share manually after mount -a. My guess is I should type a magic command into the /etc/fstab, but...
  7. Encrypted Proxmox backup on CIFS storage

    Hello! I was wondering if there's a way to encrypt the backups done via Proxmox (at the Datacenter level) on a CIFS/SMB storage location. I did see on the [manual](https://pve.proxmox.com/pve-docs/chapter-pvesm.html#storage_pbs_encryption) that PBS support that, but I would love to have it...
  8. Proxmox can't add internet SMB storage

    Hello Guys, I have Proxmox 7.1 installed, but I can't add any of my SMB storage. The storage in this case is provided by the hosting provider over the internet, and I have the feeling that Proxmox won't look up WAN addresses? I have tried adding a NFS and another SMB storage before, (definitely...

  11. How do I mount network share AFTER TrueNAS VM starts?

    I'm using a TrueNAS VM for network shares and some of my containers use network folders in that VM. So I mount the shares in Proxmox and bind mount & remap uid/gid's in my unprivileged containers. This works fine unless I reboot. Proxmox fails to mount these folders since the VM hasn't started...
  12. Shared Storage on a Gigabyte Home Network

    Hello all, I have been thinking of setting up Shared Storage for 3 Proxmox nodes. This will mean 4 systems (NAS, pve1, pve2, pve3). The NAS (for lack of a better name) will share to the 3 nodes using NFS or SMB and will hold all the VMs and CTs only; it will not be used as a multimedia server...
  13. [SOLVED] Backups: trigger pruning manually

    I have mounted a SMB share for backups which proved very unreliable during the backup process. I switched to a hook script now, copying the backup file via scp to the remote destination. However, I would still like to trigger the pruning of backups as setup for this storage location. Can I do...
  14. Unable to activate storage - SMB

    Hi everyone I have a problem with my Proxmox host. I needed to change the SMB IP share So I went to /etc/pve/storage.cfg and changed the address, since then only problems... It seems that the share connects and then immediately disconnects. So because of this I just completely deleted the...
