Detect new NVME Drive on Proxmox


Renowned Member

I have MicroBlade MBI-6219G-T8HX node
I added to this node additional M.2 Drive Samsung 970 EVO NVMe M.2 2TB
but I don't see this new Drive, not in fdisk and not in Disks list on Proxmox GUI
if I boot from Installation CD, I can see this new drive on installation Drives list

any suggestion how can I scan / detect this drive for existing nodes without new installation?

hmm - nvme drives are usually found under '/dev/nvmeXnY' (X and Y being numbers) - do you see any device-nodes that match that pattern?
else check the output of `dmesg` for anything related to 'samsung' or 'nvme'
also the output of `lspci -nnk` should show you which devices are on the pci-bus(es)

hope this helps!
