My first build of the node is using UNAS NSC800 Chassis with Intel I7-6700T with ASRock C236 WSI. I was a bit disappointed due to...
In this thread, I posted pics of my recently-rebuilt home server. Now that the hardware part is done (maybe?), I'm thinking it's time to revisit the OS/software side. So I'm soliciting feedback.
I don't think anything is really broken, but mostly non-optimal due to having grown up...
I want to build One Computer To Rule Them All.
I plan to have a multiheaded setup, with one pair of monitors, keyboard + mouse each Windows and Linux, running in VMs. Windows will be used for gaming and graphic art projects, Linux for data science/bioinformatics, so performance is important.

Trying to install SD5 in a Proxmox build.
The installer goes through with no errors but it never gets installed.
I've installed SD5 many times on my XenServer host.
I'm looking to get my feet wet in the Proxmox world...

This guide has how to create a KVM/ LXC virtualization host that also has Ceph storage and ZFS storage built-in. The same host will also have access to bare metal Docker-ce containers using Portainer as a GUI management.

So I've built my first Proxmox VE cluster.
Ive been mainly a Mac and Windows guy and recently missed out on a job because my Linux was rubbish, So I'm diving in to train and so I first started with Unraid I liked it it was easy and intuitive but I needed 2 servers as It was cheaper to buy...
I need a new NAS system.
now i use an old qnap TS210 as a nfs/smb share for data transfer and backup.
i have a custom proxmox server that backup on this qnap, now i need to share nfs storage on other machine
for using shared-storage for virtual machine.
i make some test and when i backup or...
Heading off to sleep, but I think I have a project tomorrow that people are going to be interested in. We have had threads on Proxmox v. Docker and periodic threads on why not Proxmox and Docker.
For a home lab proof of concept I now bring you: Docker running on Proxmox bare metal with a web...
as the subj. says, can it be done and how?
I have been planning to rebuild my home server with Proxmox VE 4.4
but as I have a single server, hardware wise, I need it to be a VM server AND a file server.
reading up on ZFS lead me to conclusion that while it is a nice robust FS it has it's...
i have some crazy idea, i would build my new home server proxmox infrastructure with 1 (or 2 node)
powerful laptop (es. DELL e6420 i5/i7 and 8 or more gb of ram) and a dedicated raid nas.
- ssd disk
- battery as a perfect backup ups
- vm machine can work in local or via nfs share (raid...
i try to change replace my avoton C2750 mainboard that work how proxmox 4.x hypervisor
possibly mini-itx because my case are mini.
i monitoring model /J1900/N3150/N3170 etc CPU because is interesting TDP
but have less performance respect C2000. (cpu passmark comparison)
as the subj. says I am trying to get opinions and maybe some help setting up a router replacement box.
I have a Lenovo ThinkCentre M58p Desktop - Intel Core 2 Duo E8400 3GHz
which I got specifically to build a router/firewall for my home.
have 3 1Gb NIC ports. on builtin and...
Here is one that I think you will find to be extremely interesting.
I was moving one of the old WordPress VMs from one server to another and moving data from ZFS to Ceph. Moving ZFS to Ceph completed successfully. Once on Ceph (the shared storage pool in the cluster) I tried moving it to a...
I'd love to run a Proxmox setup for my home server and really like the flexibility that BTRFS seems to offer for my personal files and media, but I know that BTRFS isn't great with VMs (by default) nor integrated into Proxmox. So I'm wondering whether I can do some sort of mix of ZFS...
One of the new series I am working on: SMB Service Provider Architecture.
This is going to be:
pfSense firewall/ router
Proxmox VE hypervisor/ storage node (may have ESXi too)
FreeNAS storage (backup and shared storage)
Getting it all to work and etc. Opening this thread for feedback.
(This turned out to be a long thread start...sorry...)
Im redoing my servers at home and looking to maybe redo the storage too.
Today I run ESXi on two hosts and run like periodic backups to external storage, because I never really found a way to do it properly. (VMs backup via Unitrends). ...
Running out of time this week, I tried getting Xpenology on Proxmox setup today and failed here:
I want to have an Xpenology instance on a Proxmox server at home. If you can make a step-by-step guide for me to get this working I have $25 for them via PayPal and I am happy to give the guide...
