  1. Ceph: actual used space?

    Hi, I'm running a Proxmox 7.2-7 cluster with Ceph 16.2.9 "Pacific". I can't tell the difference between Ceph > Usage and Ceph > Pools > Used (see screenshots). Can someone please explain what's the actual space used in my Ceph storage? Do you think that 90% used pool is potentially dangerous...

  6. 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...
  7. Proxmox als Speichersystem

    Hallo, ich frage mich, ob man Proxmox nicht als ausfallsichere Speicherlösung einsetzen kann. Es geht um z.B. S3 Speicher, der via VM zur Verrfügung gestellt wird. Die VM selbst sollte dann aber direkt auf den Proxmox Ceph Speicher durchgreifen um die VM portabel zu halten. Hat jemand von Euch...

  11. [SOLVED] LVM Storage Accidentally Deleted

    Hello Everyone, We made a mistake and without going into details, our two large storages from the cluster primary server were deleted. However, through some miracle, and because all of the virtual machines / containers were running at the time no data has been lost (yet). Everything remains...
  12. [SOLVED] ZFS newbie. Want to add 2x1TB drives (ZFS mirrored) to setup. Is it better to put VMs/CTs on zpool, or use pool for data?

    This is my first time using ZFS. Currently, I have a single NVMe drive for both local and local-lvm storage (my VMs/CTs and all of their data live here). I would like to add 2x1TB SSDs in a ZFS mirror. However, I'm torn about what to do with the extra storage: 1. Move my VMs/CTs and all of...
