My Proxmox Install

Postby ciscoh » Sun Apr 29, 2012 2:12 pm

So i wiped my gaming desktop and installed Proxmox, i didnt play much games anyways.

I installed Amahi but it is not "final" as i am still struggling with how i want to handle storage.

Amahi does run much faster in the VM, but then i gave it 4 cores and 8GB of RAM, so it better.

Overall, i think i am sold on Proxmox but still need to finalize my "design"

I am cursed in that i am a tinkerer. I never leave things well enough alone...:/

I am using Proxmix with Dual Core processor and 8GB RAM. So far giving VMs 1 core and 1GB RAM. I may up that once I see how it behaves.

So far, it runs pretty good. I am hoping to access VMs outside the network occasionally. Hoping I can learn more about how to use Proxmox. The container part is quite interesting, but still playing.

Cool. I am limited on hardware, but seems to run fine. Had 3 running at the same time and speed was not bad.

ah the curse of the tinkerer. I continue with my curse of the same, awaiting pay cheques to fund the next server upgrade :lol: ;)

I'm curious how greyhole is behaving in your setups. how are you allotting storage to it? what filesystems?

I'll likely go the Proxmox route just because I don't wanna be limited to what hardware I can use.
I think I'm just gonna wait on Amahi for Fedora 16.

I'm a tinkerer as well. Its a blessing when you discover new and cool things. Ifs not fun when you bring everything down, or worst, loose data.

I was thinking going with proxmox too.

Actually, I entered in a contest with NCIX last fall (the canucks here would know who they are), and they left me a vmail today regarding the contest I enterd in. Basically it was Windows 2011 SBS with some cool hardware. I was excited about winning the hardware. In my mind, I won the contest, and building a cool promox box. But when I called back, it was a sales call/pitch. blah. They said they will announce the winner in a few days.

But anyways, I am interested in as well, just need 2 more drives, more ram and a raid card.

I am still struggling with the storage. I think i am leaning to mapping them for direct access to drives. I am also playing with openfiler. I think i might install the OS on an NFS share so i can back it up and play with moving it live between servers.......

basically i am still tinkering..:/

Proxmox is a nice environment. We should document these configurations and processes in the wiki once they are working. It would be beneficial to others.
