    Proxmox passthrough to Freenas

    Hi I was wondering if any experts could tell me what I was doing wrong? Note: I am aware that passthrough is an experimental feature in Proxmox VE and that some purist will not like the FREENAS running in a VM. But trying to make a all in one test system ala Patrick. Following this I managed...

    Windows performance on Proxmox - sanity check

    Hello STH forum, I have a question about running Windows on Proxmox because this is giving me a bad time so far. I'm asking here at STH first because it seems to me there is more technical knowledge on STH than on the Proxmox forums. Some relevant specs of the box I'm running this on: Intel...

    Home server architecture thoughts?

    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...
