    Reused VMID vs. API current status

    Hi, the thing about reusing/uniqueness of VMID have been discussed several times here. But I have found strange behavior related to API. Imagine following scenario: 1) create VM having VMID = 100 and call /api2/json/nodes/<NODE>/qemu/100/status/current => data as object are returned 2) remove...

    VMID Assignment

    Curious... Am I the only one who assigns their LXC/VMs to coincide with their IP. For example, I have, so I have a service LXC that's set as 2005. Or is this my OCD? :D

    How to generate virtual machine id safely?

    Web UI shows me the recommended virtual machine id: How can I get this recommended ID via Proxmox API in order to avoid collisions while creating virtual machines? The best scenario of course is when I can send POST request without specifying vm id myself and let proxmox assign it for me...

    SUGGESTION: Store VM NAME in vzdump backup filename

    I have an idea for an enhancement of vzdump: when creating a backup job, it would be great to have an option to store the guest's NAME in the backup filename (in addition to the VM ID). So with the option disabled the filenames would look unchanged: vzdump-qemu-240-2016_09_02-01_27_32.log...
