Migrate VM - Error Quorum


New Member
Apr 16, 2019
Hello, i'm french so i think you'll maybe not understand what i will say, i'm sorry about that.

I have 1 Proxmox "pve2" with 5 VM/Container and i want to migrate these in another Proxmox "pve3" but i can't launch ssh "pve2" so i can't do any command line on this node.

So i just created a cluster "Clt1" on "pve2". I made a virtualmachine on my computer with Proxmox "pve4" and i would add "pve4" on the cluster "Clt1". But my VM's ip was a local ip and even if it been add in the cluster nothing work. "Join Information" is grey and I can't add another node in "Clt1" because the "Cluster not ready - no quorum?".

If you have some idea about that cluster problem or just about how i can migrate my VM/Cluster i take all of them :)

Thanks a lot,

but i can't launch ssh "pve2" so i can't do any command line on this node.
Do you mean you cannot connect in any way to pve2 via ssh? - Then this needs fixing first.

for the cluster-problems:
* check the journal for messages from pmxcfs and corosync (`journalctl -r`)
* make sure that all nodes can be resolved (DNS) by all nodes (add the hostnames+ips in '/etc/hosts')

Hope this helps!

Thanks for your answer. No i can't connect to pve2 via ssh and even via Proxmox console. That's OVH's server problem but i don't know if they can do anything without harm my VM/Container. That's why i would make a cluster to migrate all of the virtual machine who're on "pve2".

I still have a "Cannot initialize CMAP service" when i try to change the quorum's number of vote.
