In case you have some LXC containers on your Proxmox server, then there is high chance that you will get some errors during backup them up. Some container templates may not support snapshot or suspend modes. Instead you should you use stop mode. It is important to remember that during such backup container will be stopped, so be aware of that in case you have some encryption which could ask for a key during startup.
In case of an Abuse message from BSI (in Germany), the following services must be enabled and disabled: Verify in 2 ways: Cutting with DROP traffic by Suricata IPS is not sufficient, because not all possible traffic signatures on port 111 are used and in most cases this port can be enumerated.
Bare metal servers offered at Scaleway are at reasonable prices, which can be compared to those on Hetzner. You even get Proxmox installation by default contrary to Hetzner were you need to install Debian first. To setup Proxmox with one public IP anf pfSense with another one you need to order Flexible IP and request for virtual MAC address. Remember that on Scaleway’s flexible IPs gateway is fixed and it is 18.104.22.168. Then for the network configuration: x.x.x.x is primary Proxmox public IP. y.y.y.y is its gateway (with a.a.a.a network with b.b.b.b netmask). z.z.z.z is then your secondary public IP
If you wonder if it is possible to have private-only Proxmox cluster in Hetnzer, then the answer is yes, almost. Of couse you can order dedicated hardware to hide your boxes from public eyes, but if you are not going that way, then you can try other way. Configuration of the first box: Configuration of the second, private-only, box:
For non-users of either Proxmox or Suricata: the first one is virtualization appliance which helps firing up virtual machines as well as LXC containers and the latter is network traffic security system which is able to identify (IDS mode) or even block malicious traffic (IPS mode). Suricata works just fine on Proxmox which is usually installed on Debian Linux, but sometimes there are some hardware/software compatibility issues which I’m going to tell you about right now… Having Proxmox server exposed in public space could be really not the best way possible. However if there is no chance for dedicated hardware,
First of all this SSD drive which I use is somehow faulty. It is a Goodram SSDPR-CX400-01T-G2 drive of 1TB. It have been working fine for few weeks until some construction worker made a electric short causing some abnormal frequences in wires resulting a faulty drives and memory sticks. One of victim was this drive: This drives for sure has some issues as at least one of tools shows that it as a problematic badblocks. Second of all in regular use it fails to run VM. It once switched into read-only mode in VM filesystem then after formatting it it
Finally I got it working. I think so. This Proxmox installation is simple one, just single node for experiments which is half part. The other part is VM configuration. You may ask, what exactly for do I need GPU in VM? I may need because the hardware is capable of running several additional GPUs and I can use all of them at once in different configurations and even in different operation systems. Just like people do in cloud environments and this setup mimics such thing running server-like computer with datacenter-like GPUs on board. During this test I used NVIDIA GTX
I installed Proxmox Backup Server several times, both on bare metal and virtualized inside Proxmox VE. This time I did it in PVE as virtual machine and encountered an issue while initializing disk with GPT, creating directory, LVM or ZFS. In other words, I was unable to create any datastore at all. So there is CLI that can help us: And that’s all, it works fine. In UI I got timeout. No idea why. Fortunately there is a alternative path.
There is not too much a precise documentation from Hetzner available if you want to know what exactly you should do to run dedicated servers with primary and secondary public IP, virtual machines and vSwitch. There are some articles but they are written in non-informative way. However their support is on very high level so far, they respond quickly. Debian & Proxmox Installation So, to go with Proxmox on Hetzner you will need to know that there is supported installation. You restart your server into rescue system (remember to power cycle your server) and then there is Proxmox to choose
