Hi there, does an upgrade from PVE 6.2 to 6.4 need two upgrade steps or is a straight jump up OK?
It is OK, we generally try hard to make upgrades inside the same major release possible.

But still, any oddity of an older minor release may have been half-forgotten, and it's not ideal to pause upgrades (which include security upgrades) for a prolonged time period. In general, I'd recommend updating more frequently, I can imagine that daily is not possible for all setups and the administration/maintenance time one has available for them, but upgrading with a period between weekly to monthly should be doable for most setups and result in a smaller upgrade delta and a more secure system.

Anyhow, tldr: yes :)

Many thanks for writing back so quickly Thomas. Great to know that it should be smooth sailing!

Absolutely re: updates - the onus is on my shoulders. PVE was our start with Proxmox - the ISO Images page for PVE listed 6.3 & 6.2.
Being used to other software vendors, we assumed it was a more drawn-out release cycle and that 6.3 would be close to bleeding-edge.

Should've gone with 6.3 to begin with and stepped up to 6.4 from there. You live and learn! We're deploying PMG now, and went with 6.4.x. :)

As for updating more generally, with the cluster size (and need for all nodes to have an equal licensing level) we're about ready to commit so we can perform the update safely via the enterprise repository. Looking over the packages, versions and rough/visible history it looks like no-subscription is fairly safe, though it's too risky to have updates become automated/frequent/procedure using that repo, so would rather wait.

If it's easy, please expand the window of add PCI device, or add side scroll the window.
If mdev is supported, then it is not visible what parameters each device has. Thanks.

You can already make the existing colums wider, which should add side scrolling.

But yes, some improvement of the default width, or see if that information can be rendered easier to grasp in general seems sensible to do.
