Hello,
after installation of proxmox ve 5.4-3 when i try to create vm using GUI there is no storage and checking it on GUI list there no local-lvm,so what to do?, there is docs?is it issue?
it's added to cluster.
the installation of two node,the same result.
and i need one of the nodes for backup,so which type of storage to use Ceph,GlusterFS,NFS(on host),NFS(using freenas....),others..
thanks
 
Hi,

normally a "local-lvm" will always get create if using our provided installation ISO, the only exception currently is when using ZFS during install (as rpool). Did you selected ZFS as installation root filesytem?

My recent local installations which did not got installed with ZFS have all the "lvm-local".

How did you install Proxmox VE? Note that if you install Proxmox VE on top of a Debian installation you need to create the storages you want yourself.
 
I installed proxmox using official iso downloaded from proxmox website,the root filesystem is ext4 filesystem if u mean of first installation option for Hard Drive.
the both (two) nodes having the same issue if it's.
thanks

check my answer above:)
 
Also, can you see if it's possible add a "local-lvm" storage via the web GUI? (Datacenter -> Storage -> Add 'LVM-Thin')?
Maybe the cluster join just overwrote the /etc/pve/storage.cfg and thus the local-lvm storage is just not listed anymore (but exists physically).

We normally do not delete threads, maybe then can help someone else when searching the net some day.

You could mark it as solved, but no need, you can also just let it as is :)

Hello,
look like there is misunderstood bcs i have 2 nodes,when use one of them ask me for template so was im wrong, but when checking the another node was there is node but there is no storage of disk.
Code:
#lvs

Hello,
after Upgrade (New Node) and connect it to the cluster look like the "local-lvm" removed on GUI,so what to do ?
Code:

        thinpool data
        vgname pve
        content rootdir,images
        nodes pve,pve3,pve2
and look like was OS from the same installation ISO,at storage.cfg local like there is no pve5 at lvmthin !
so where is the issue ?
Best Regards

Hi,

normally a "local-lvm" will always get create if using our provided installation ISO, the only exception currently is when using ZFS during install (as rpool). Did you selected ZFS as installation root filesytem?

My recent local installations which did not got installed with ZFS have all the "lvm-local".

How did you install Proxmox VE? Note that if you install Proxmox VE on top of a Debian installation you need to create the storages you want yourself.


Hi,

I have this case. I created a new node with ZFS at install, now when I open the GUI of the new node, I see a question mark on the local-lvm.

here is my pvesm status
Code:
Name             Type     Status           Total            Used       Available        %

And here is my cat /etc/pve/storage.cfg

Code:
dir: local
    path /var/lib/vz
    content vztmpl,backup,iso
    prune-backups keep-all=1
    shared 0

    thinpool data
    vgname pve
    content images,rootdir

    export /volume2/S3
    path /mnt/pve/tetsuo-s3
    server tetsuo.foxstone.ch
    content iso,backup,snippets,vztmpl,images,rootdir
    prune-backups keep-last=1

pbs: pbs
    datastore foxstone

    prune-backups keep-all=1
    username root@pam

and my lsblk
Code:

And this is what I see from the ZFS tab in the GUI

Maybe the cluster join just overwrote the /etc/pve/storage.cfg and thus the local-lvm storage is just not listed anymore (but exists physically).
I ran into this when a second node that had no local-lvm ( zfs only) was added. Adding this to storage.cfg on pve1 fixed it:
Code:
lvmthin: local-lvm
        thinpool data
        vgname pve
        content rootdir,images
        nodes pve1
