I had a VM using RAW storage format on a ZFS storage object. I needed to delete the RAW hard drive files but couldn’t find them and the “remove” button was greyed out. One post mentioned using “qm rescan” which then allowed the poster to use the remove button but that didn’t work for me. […]

I have a limited number of IPv4 addresses available to me on my servers. So I am really frugal with how I assign them. Whenever possible, my preference is to use NAT off of the main Proxmox IP. However I struggled to get this setup while also using the built-in Proxmox firewall that comes in […]

One of the things I like having is a remote system I can access and work on from anywhere. In the past this has meant using either a dedicated server (expensive) or VPS (which is just a VM… too slow). With Proxmox, I figured I had the option of using a container, which would mean […]

On Thursday I released an article detailing how to get Proxmox setup and also how to configure networking with IPv6. However that article got long and I just said I would address the firewall in the future. Well, that’s today because I need to get the configuration stuff written down before I forget.

After beating my head against the wall over the course of many hours I have finally figured out how to get Proxmox working quite well on my cheap KimSufi server… with IPv6. The goal of this article is to document (with varying levels of detail) how to go from a fresh KimSufi, OVH, or SoYouStart […]
