    How do you specify where VM image will be created?

    I'm a bit confused how do you specify where the VM image will be created - any pointers would be greatly appreciated. I've created an LVM RAID0 volume and mounted it at /media/RAID0POOL. Added this resource "Datacenter" -> "Storage". But when I try to create a VM I see no option to point...

    [SOLVED] Can't delete volume from container because the volume's underlying storage no longer exists

    Proxmox VE 7.4-17 I temporarily attached an external USB disk to my Proxmox node and added it to DataCenter->Storage in the GUI. I then attached a VM disk on this storage to a container (disk name is usbRetro:105/vm-105-disk-0.raw) Stupidly I removed the storage entry, forgetting that I still...

    Hello, My company wants to set up a proxmox infrastructure but we're hesitating between two choices (we can adjust the hardware configuration of each server). We want to have at least 5Tb of usable storage. Depending on the choice, we invest in a backup server (PBS or TrueNAS replication) a...

    [SOLVED] local-lvm getting full.

    Hi, my local-lvm is almost full and I don't know what to do to fix this. I still don't fully understand what local-lvm is or how it works, compared to "local" (which is cleared with no issues). I tried fstrim on all my VMs and Containers. That only freed about 10 GB out of what's being used -...

    ZFS-Local Deletion

    Hello, I do not want a zfs-local partition on my server so I deleted it from the gui by going to datacenter>Storage>and clicking remove. However I watched a networkchuck video where he did this with a lvm-local instead. He said that once it has been removed from the GUI you need to remove it...

    Empty LVM storage shows as full in UI although it's empty

    I Installed PROXMOX on a new server, and after a few days, the storage on the UI started to show like it's full, although I haven't created any VMs or anything on it. This PVE is part of a cluster, and I am afraid that other nodes have somehow written to this disk. I have a few nodes, each one...

    Storage does not allow other than disk image & container on ZFS pool?

    In the Datacentre settings, specifically Storage, it is impossible to select e.g. ISOs, templates, backups, etc. for a ZFS pool. Why? I understand that it is possibly a workaround to add a Dir being a ZFS dataset, but why not allowing selecting the actual pool? Does this have anything to do...

    Moving virtual HDD only to another node?

    Hi everyone, I was adding another node to my cluster today (node 4), and during the process, node 1 decided to crash. This triggered the HA, and it began spinning the VM up on node 2.
