    Just getting into Proxmox for a home lab, and picked up more information from your one video than watching many others on KZclip. Great content and explained very clear why you made certain decisions. Also answered some questions I had that other content creators skipped over. Thank you very much.

    Amazing tutorial. I had followed another one last year for an old, low end PC and gave up on it because of how crappy it was and how confusing Proxmox looked.
    But this video described every little step. It doesn't just tell you what to do, but WHY. Proxmox now seems fun and simple!

    Very good Proxmox info! Coming from ESXi + vSphere and Citrix Hypervisor + XenCenter at work, I'm eager to try Proxmox for my next homelab changes. I did some testing with XCP-NG + Xen Orchestra based on a recommendation from Tom at LTS, which seemed good for managing many hosts, but I felt it wasn't the right fit for my lab. Proxmox seems like a better option. Thanks for the info.

    I bought my first server this past year or so. I chose Open Media Vault as my first server OS because it was simple to start with. But now I'm seeing how much more use I'll get on my server by installing OMV as a VM in Proxmox and still be able to use all that available power for other things which is totally cool. A different KZclipr made a 20 part tutorial on Proxmox but I learned way more on this single video then in that entire 20 part playlist so great job on the video for sure. I feel like I have a good grasp on the basic concepts now and I'm gonna take the plunge. This is going to be super fun. Thanks again!

    For Hardware, i have to say i´m extremely happy with my proxmox system running on an old consumer grade laptop. Sounds weird on first sight, but has some major advantages imho.
    1. They are dirt cheap, and i mean dirt cheap.
    2. Power Consumption is really really low (my system runs at 14W)
    3. Integrated UPS, which is a Pro-feature :-) -> also you can limit the SOC to say like 60% to preserve the battery simply by using TLP and configure it once and then forget it. So no more corrupted DBs or anything.
    Of course there are also a ton of disadvantages, thats for sure. But for my usecase they really don´t matter that much.
    IMHO, for a small HomeSystem with low performance demands, it´s really a good choice! And if the Laptops dies, who cares, you got snapshots and are back in business in no time.

    Love the in depth explanations you provide. Is it possible to install MacOS in this environment choosing "other" as the system type and using a standard MacOS iso?

    • ElectronicsWizardry
      ElectronicsWizardry  6 ай бұрын

      I believe its possible to install macOS, but I haven't tried. I don't believe apple provides a iso image, and only a DMG and APP image is available. I think some changes to the bootloader would also be required similar to the ones used for a hackintosh. I may try setting this up in the future.

    1.i am having issues adding an external drive to proxmox. Every time i successfully add one, It disconnects after a system reboot and doesnt re-mount automatically. I always have to remount manually every time.
    2. I installed truenas vm, and plex via lxc container but cant access my usb storage even when its mounted in proxmos.
    Please help.

    Just installed Proxmox 7.1 in a Samsung T3 external SSD, new to Proxmox.
    Used 1 1TB internal NVME disk as ZFS for the storage, and got a Win11 running on it.
    Now i want to backup just the windows disk (added 1 for Windows, 1 for games).
    But can only backup to Local, the External SSD which is small.
    Can i backup to the ZFS disk, or do i need to add another storage? And as what type?
    For in the future:
    I still got a 2TB NVMe build in, which is running my Manjaro currently, could i setup this disk for backup And usage of VMs (after i emptied it), or should i add another External HDD just for backups?

    If I don't need clustering, HA or anything like that, I have two 500GB SSDs I want to use.
    2nd will be for VM's and storage for ISOs where as the main would be be for proxmox, opnsense, piehole nothing to large.
    What is best practice for storage for proxmox, which type like ext4, xfs. Im not sure ZFS is where I want to go. And later, if I choose say 100GB for proxmox, can split up or use the remaining space for the other thing I've listed here.

    • ElectronicsWizardry
      ElectronicsWizardry  27 күн бұрын

      I’m a fan of ZFS and would likely put the drives in one zfs pool and use that. That would have it so there is only one pool to manage. But without zfs I’d probably go ext4, but xfs will be basically the same for the uses here. LVM will also work. For most uses the file system will have no effect on usage.
      If you go with ext4, xfs, or zfs then there isn’t a fixed amount of storage for the host and VMs are thin provisioned so they only take the space they need on disk. Lvm is better if you want full allocation as it will have a designated space for the os that can’t be shared with the vms. I like to go with thin provisioning as it’s more flexible about vm layout and saves disk spaces but fixed provisioning guarantees the disk won’t run out of space and will have slightly better performance.

    I installed Proxmox on a 128GB SSD, and the Disks section shows /dev/sda1 BIOS boot 1.03 MB, /dev/sda2 EFI 536.87 MB, and /dev/sda3 LVM 127.50 GB... but when I click on local in the top left server view, it shows max size is 31 GB, and local-lvm shows max size is 69.24 GB. That doesn't add up to 128 GB. Where's the missing space?
    Furthermore, Disks/LVM shows only 88% of space is assigned to LVs and 15.84 GB is free. How do I claim the free space?

    Do you know if we can migrate LXC containers live in a cluster yet? I have been sticking to VMs for this reason for years. Also seems nothing was mentioned about the qemu guest agent?

    • Kimo Troph

      I believe that you should use LxD for migration and Nomad and Consul for container orchestration. Prometheus to monitor kubernetes swarm and host independently.

      LXC containers don’t support live migration yet, only when there shutdown. Looks like I missed the guest agent. That’s for bringing that up.

      I’d probably go with the i7 as it seems to be much faster here. But from my experience ram is a limiting factor normally before cpu power so make sure you have enough ram too.

      Pbs only backups the vms and containers, not any of the host configuration or a image. Let me look into a way to do image backup of the Proxmox host. I’d also suggest keeping the data drives and boot drives separate if possible. Then pbs can backup the data drive and another program can make a image of the boot drive

      ​@ElectronicsWizardry Thank you for your fast response.
      So it can backup just only main host (plan to bkp on USB drive) and do fast restore without reconfiguration in case of disaster?
      (also want to be sure when I play with Porxmox that I can restore fast and not do all over again)
      I tested Veeam Linux Agent but didn't go well...(even found some bugs) I tried to make a clone of a disk with CloneZila but unfortunately not able to restore it.

    • ElectronicsWizardry
      ElectronicsWizardry   Жыл бұрын +1

      I’d probably use pbs to backup Proxmox. It works well and allows for fast incremental backups. I’d install pbs on the host in a single node but you can also run pbs in a vm. Unfortunately there aren’t any other good backup options for Proxmox like veeam, and normal Linux backup software like borg isn’t recommended for Proxmox as it won’t lock the vm images.
