Well I updated my personel proxmox to 7.1 with no real issues yet. But all my guests are linux

I have a 4 node system here that I manage, but I still have a few 2003 servers and one 2000.

I skimmed over a few posts , one that sticks out is lack of newer virto nic drivers on newer releases.

Not surprised with lack of support at this age of OS. but I kinda need to keeps these around.

Still skimming the posts for info, but wanted to ask if there are any big surprises I might face.

I have no answer for you besides you have to try it yourself. Old drivers are still available for some older virtio stuff, yet in the end you may have to use IDE and e1000 to get it to work IF the virtio hardware has changed to much.

Thanks, was kind of the same logic I was thinking. Thanks for your response. Was hoping that since they are already running under 6.x my chances were better than average. But as we all know, that might not mean much !

Was thinking, I share a PBS between the 2, that should be easy enough, or almost anyway.
