[SOLVED] VM boot loop on several nodes


Nov 28, 2019
Hi everyone,

Since a few hours, 4 of our 17 Proxmox nodes have a problem. All VMs on these nodes are stuck on a boot loop. The boot goes until "Booting from hard disk" and then return to the Proxmox screen and so on.

If we migrate the VMs on an other healthy node, it starts correctly. The problem should be with the nodes and not the VMs.

Can anyone, please, help us ?

Thank you.
could you post 'pveversion -v' from a working and non working node, as well as general hardware information? a sample VM config would also be helpful.
We have just resolved the problem by installing the "intel-microcode" package".

Thank you for your help.
