Hello ,

And already thank you for the help and time you are giving me.

I administer a proxmox server (ve-5) (64BITS). I needed to resize the disk space of a vm that is in VMDK format.

For this, the only way is apparently to convert the vm to RAW, resize it and then convert it back to VMDK.

To do this I apparently needed the qemu-utils tools (which I installed with the command apt-get install qemu-utils) The installation seems to have been successful. Except that after this installation I lost access to the web console (web interface), but the machines hosted on the hypervisor and the network in place were still working.

In order to solve this problem I only had to uninstall the packages previously installed. (qemu-utils) and that's where the big problem comes in.
Since this uninstallation, I still don't have access to my web interface and worse still, I don't ping the ip address of my hypervisor anymore.

The only way for me to connect to the hypervisor is to switch to backup mode.
But in this mode the configuration is like zero.

Do you know how this problem is possible and if there is a way to go back or in the worst case recover the VMs or virtual disks that are present on this hypervisor?

Thank you for your help.

All you need is "qemu-img", and this is already installed. There is no need to install package "qemu-utils".

To reinstall packages run:

# apt-get install proxmox-ve

Hello Dietmar,

Thank you for your answer.

When I want to reinstall the proxmox-ve packages, I get the following messages.

Reading package lists.... Fact
Construction of the dependency tree
Reading status information.... Fact
E: Unable to find the proxmox-ve package

Proxmox version: Ubuntu 16.04.4 LTS (xenial) x86_64

Thank you for your help.

Hello,

We use a host, on which a proxmox installation is installed by default.
As I can no longer access this one directly, I have the possibility to switch this server to backup mode.

Here is where the information is located:
