    Proxmox VE 5.1 released!

    Very significant updates to the underlying packages, including Debian 9.2, Kernel 4.13, ZFS 0.7.2 and Ceph Luminious with Bluestore.

    I recently started using Proxmox, so to get from 5.0 to 5.1 do I simply do:

    apt-get update && apt-get dist-upgrade

    Thanks

    *Edit: Oh maybe through GUI Updates? :S

    I'm so scared to upgrade from 4.x.

    They've gotta make better upgrades. Lost a node in the process. Fml

    Upgraded a test machine from 5.0 to 5.1. No problem at all - sweet and easy. Simple machine, no ceph, no cluster. A couple of ZFS pools that needed a "zfs upgrade" to finish the job.

    One interesting observation. The machine was part of my testing to see what it takes to run my NVR efficiently under Proxmox. Blue Iris is pretty taxing to KVM. This particular VM was running 50+% CPU utilization on 12 vCPUs (on a single socket E5-2630 v3). After the restart this same VM running the same cameras on Blue Iris was running ~30% utilization. No idea why except the upgrades KVM libraries...

    Upgrade from 5.0 to 5.1 went fine for me, FWIW.

    On a separate note: Ubuntu's switch to Netplan, however, is borking my attempts to roll 17.10 LXC containers. Seems Proxmox didn't account for this change despite months of lead time.

    how do you remove the "no subscription" nag pop-up for Proxmox VE 5.1? I've found several different procedures in my own searches, mostly around modifying code in a javascript file, but it doesn't seem to work for the pve 5.1 test installation i have... ?

    first you need to switch repo to no-subscription in "/etc/apt/sources.list.d/"
    there is a file "pve-enterprise.list" in there. I usually go in an comment out everything there.
    than edit "/etc/apt/sources.list" and add a line "deb Index of /debian/pve/ stretch pve-no-subscription"
    to it.

    than , edit "/usr/share/pve-manager/js/pvemanagerlib.js"
    find a line " if (data.status !== 'Active') "
    and change it to "if (false) "

    it works. I just tried it on my test setup.

    If you did the edit to pvemanagerlib.js before you did the "apt update; apt dist-upgrade" step then you probably had APT undo your changes. The ProxMox team regularly updates the modification dates on this file so that it gets re-installed regularly as updates are applied. While their license terms can't stop you from suppressing it, they like their nag pop-up to work.

    That might be the case. I'll check it again. However, I did set the immutable attribute to prevent it from being overwritten.

    that might not work. Proxmox might ignore the read only on update.
    that is the only annoying thing about it , that you might need to update the script file after each upgrade.

    Someone should assemble a small .deb that jumps in after an upgrade and does the job :D
