Hi,

After deploying a new server with latest version (4.2) I've noticed that /var/lib/vz does'nt exists anymore.

Instead, it uses LVM as RAW storage for VMs.... (It created local-lvm datastore).

This is new in 4.2?

Is it better than qcow2 files into /var/lib/vz as used to be before as the default option?

Thanks!

/var/lib/vz is still here, check with:

> ls -l /var/lib/vz

every storage type has some interesting features, so there is no real better. depend on the use case.

and yes, this is new with 4.2 ISO installation.

Hi tom,

Yes, /var/lib/vz it is present but inside root partition. I usually set maxroot to 10Gb... so now /var/lib/vz is 10Gb shared with system :)

I'd like that Proxmox during install let the user choose whether use local-lvm or leave an entire partition to /var/lib/vz as before :)

Thanks!
