    Proxmox guest VMs under nested virtualization do not apply DHCPOFFER replies

    I've read through dozens of similar posts, but none seem to relate to this specific issue, and it's a weird one. If I install Proxox 7.4VE as a guest VM under an existing VMware environment (on metal), the networking/DHCP/everything in VE works as expected. If I then install an Ubuntu guest VM...

    [SOLVED] Does backup server handle esx vms?

    The reason I'm asking is because I was sure I came across a post several months ago that said the backup server could also backup vms on esx hosts. I recently started looking for that but cannot find it anywhere now so I assume no but I thought I should ask here.

    [TUTORIAL] Proxmox VE vs VMware ESXi performance comparison

    Many discussions have compared Proxmox and VMware from a feature perspective, but almost none compare performance.
