Running ProxMox and many VMs.

VMs

Hive - AbtDev1 - Bandit - Positronic - Morosoph - Glam

Hardware

  • 4 SAS connections on mobo, with a SAS-to-SATA cable; make sure to turn on "SATA mode" for U.2 in BIOS; all passed through to hive
  • 4 SATA ssd connections on mobo; 3 are passed through to hive
  • 1 TB M.2 nvme
/dev/mapper/pve-root / # /dev/nvme0n1p3
/boot/efi /dev/nvme0n1p2

Passthroughs

We pass the LSI PCI-E board (and its 8 ssd drives), the 4 SATA SSD drives, and the 4 U.2 SSD drives to Hive, for storage management.

LSI PCI-E board passthru

TODO (I don't remember)
