I have six Proxmox hypervisors (various licenses) running 5.4 which I began upgrading this week (to 6.2-4). I'm on the second machine today and running into the same problem that I had on my first upgrade.
There is an LVM volume defined from the 5.4 Proxmox install which is tagged with...
I have created a VM which uses thin LVM. Now I want to start a fresh VM with the same id and back up old data. For that, I have renamed my disk (i.e vm-101-disk-0) to vm-101-disk-0-old and. Now I want to create a new volume.
The thing is I have a template which I create my Vms from, and I...
New to Linux so forgive my ignorance about anything. Hoping to switch off of HyperV. I setup a single 120GB SSD non-UEFI computer with the storage defaults (Not ZFS). I customized a great many things and then used a HDD duplicator to clone to a 250GB destination disk. To my surprise the cloned...
Proxmox is great and i'm pretty new with this mix of technologies.
LVM is extremely powerful and i need to deal with it to increase , wisely , a thin pool without breaking anything.
Here is the situation.
I plan to enlarge a partition by 2TB.
I need to increase the thin pool used by...
I'm fairly new to proxmox and linux partitions/volumes in general, so there probably is a very simple solution to this that I am missing.
My server has 1x 250GB SSD and 1x 1T HDD. I installed proxmox on the SDD and I'm guessing during installation it created following:
Hi I'm new to proxmox and I'm trying to create a pfSense vm on thin-provisioned storage.
I get this error.
Command failed with status code 5.
command '/sbin/vgscan --ignorelockingfailure --mknodes' failed: exit code 5
TASK ERROR: unable to create VM 100 - no such volume group 'pfSense_tp'
I wanted to add a disk, and primarily use it as a Thinpool, and I also wanted some directory storage for images and templates on the same disk.
The guide here shows how to do it: https://pve.proxmox.com/pve-docs/chapter-sysadmin.html#chapter_lvm
However its not as simple as copy and paste. You...

I work with Proxmox 5.2 and LVM Thin-Volumes. I create a couple of snapshots from a windows test-vm and wondering how it worked.
A normal thin snapshot under LVM2 used the same size as the original thin-volume has. In my case the thin-lv has 32GiB, so the snapshot would become also...
Hello to the community,
I was following this thread to find the solution to the problem, but I got different behaviour.
My guest VM is using 13GB on /dev/sda1, here's the configuration
I have two 500GB SSD RAID1. First RAID1 partion is ext4 for system (20GB size) and second partion is LVM-Thin for VMs (size 446GB).
Everything works great, except one thing - if I create backup of VM, proxmox want to save it at "/var/lib/vz" which is on 20GB ext4 partion.
Is possible to save...
Offline migration fails for me when I try to move from a newer proxmox 4 install that has been upgraded to 5.1, to a older proxmox 5.1 install that started with proxmox 3.
The storage involved is not marked shared, but the older server has local storage configured as true plain local storage...
