    Snapshots: how to exclude external mounts?

    I have a VM with a NFS share mounted that will be about a couple of TB, how can I exclude it from snapshots? If I will create a Proxmox HA (I still haven't had a look at it, so I don't know how it works), will it transfer the NFS share mounted with all the data? Thanks!

    Best way to have hot spare + backup at the same time with PVE on ZFS (with pvesr & sanoid)

    Syncoid (dataset synchronization between two different machines) and Sanoid (creation and prune of snapshots) are two ZFS (high-level) tools that combined give you hot spares (syncoid) and backups (sanoid) to roll back to them if necessary. Proxmox has the storage replication feature (pvesr)...

    What are the best practices for snapshotting zvol based VMs

    I might not be searching the correct terms, but I haven't really found any information on ways to manage snapshots for VMs running in zvols on ZFS. - Our system runs VMs on a zpool, and I let PVE automatically create a new zvol for each VM. - I have setup zfs-auto-snapshot to take incremental...
