So i have enabled virtual Watchdog device in Windows (model=i6300esb, action=reset) and this device is showing in windows device manager.
Does Windows Server (2016 and later) support Virtual Watchdogs?
Are there extra Windows drivers i must install?
Or a watchdog daemon/client like in linux...
I have a single node "storage server" that has started randomly crashing. While I dont have the time (and its not a business critical node) to replace it, I would like the watchdog to trap and reboot- but here I run into a dilemma.
I cant install the debian watchdog package because it conflicts...
From my testing of Proxmox, one frustration I had was that unlike my previous Xen environment, Proxmox does not detect if a VM has panicked/crashed/frozen and as such won't reboot the VM, potentially ending up in hours of downtime until the issue is realised and resolved.
After a bit of digging...

I use Supermicro server with PVE 6.2. I did the watchdog setup this way:
options ipmi_watchdog action=power_cycle panic_wdt_timeout=10
Describing here a problem encountered. noteworthy is previously there were hugepages configured with the VM running and these were subsequently removed. Proxmox did not catch this imho.
Booting a VM where the CPU configuration had pdpe1gb flag enabled this appeared to have resulted in initially...
I'm testing new setup where I have 3x storage boxes(with multiples drives) and 6x compute boxes (with two drives + more RAM) all are part of same cluster.
I installed ceph on 3x storage nodes and added all the free drives from it as OSDs. ceph is up and running and I can use mounted...
I have added a new node to my cluster today, then I realized the new node's network configuration might have an issue that it cannot communicate with the CEPH IP ranges, I have restarted the network service using "systemctl restart networking"
after this, the disaster happened and I...
I'm running PVE cluster on 6 nodes.
In total 2 different server models are used, but all are from Lenovo.
In the server configuration I can define 3 types of server timeouts:

I moved to Proxmox 5 in a dev environment and was wondering how to setup the hardware watchdog.
On the same hardware running Proxmox 4, a kernel module ipmi_watchdog has been loaded.
Now I can only find the following modules.
lsmod |grep ipmi
ipmi_ssif 24576 0...
So I just upgraded to 5.0-23 tonight.
When I try to boot the system, I now receive this error:
[28.072000] NMI watchdog: BUG: soft lockup - CPU#0 stuck for 23s! [swapper/0:1]
The machine will keep spitting out variations of that error (only thing that changes is the timing. Instead of 23s it...
In Proxmox 3.x I setup fencing using apc pdus.
I did not have any HA VMs setup but if one of the Proxmox nodes locked up or crashed the node would fenced.
Is it possible to replicate this behavior In 4.x and 5.x?
I'm fine with the watchdog as the method of fencing just don't see a way to make...
I have Proxmox 4.4 installed in a new Dell R630 with watchdog configured as explained in the Proxmox wiki which is just as the 6th comment in this other thread suggests:
At the end of that comment it says:
As we have already talked about reboots, here's one fresh. From 4.4-5 to 4.4-13. Reboot is at the end.

We have a tree node cluster and our datacenter is having little networking issues those days. It means that part of the traffic is lost (resulting pings loss) and the watchdog on each node, which is the default software softdog, sees that the machine cannot contact the others and shutdown the...
