Hi just upgrade to the latest proxmox version (Virtual Environment 8.0.4). I installed proxmox over debian 12 (https://pve.proxmox.com/wiki/Install_Proxmox_VE_on_Debian_12_Bookworm). So far all good and I like the new upgrade since the last version of proxmox that I was using was the 4.4.


One of the issues I am having (not really an issue but still would like to sort it out) is that during the boot/shutdown process I only see the cursor on the screen and no info is being displayed about what is being loaded/turn off. I tried playing with the quite option during boot but I was not able to get the info to show.

The reason I want the display to be show is because sometimes there is a long boot/shutdown time delay and I would really like to see what is going.

Can someone clarify if this is a feature or not and what options I have to re-enable the ability to view info during boot/shutdown?

Thanks

Phanos
 
To see log messages during startup and during shutdown, edit /etc/default/grub and remove "quiet" from this line:
Code:
GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX_DEFAULT="quiet"
Then run proxmox-boot-tool refresh

the change did it althought I had to run "update-grub" after the change otherwise the change does not have any effect on my system.
