  • extend memory GUI to support ballooning
  • implement auto-ballooning
  • add HD resize feature to expand disks
  • update to latest Debian version 6.0.7
  • qcow2 as default storage format, cache=none (previously raw)
  • KVM64 as default CPU type (previously qemu64)
  • e1000 as default NIC (previously rtl8139)
  • task history per VM
  • Node Summary: added “KSM sharing” and “CPU Socket count”
  • enable/disable tablet for VM on GUI without stop/start of VM (you can use vmmouse instead, for lower CPU usage, works on modern Linux and on all Windows VMs as long as you install the vmmouse drivers)

See the Proxmox Wiki post for more details of the update.

For any 2.x version of Proxmox, you can update via apt-get by using the below commands in a terminal. Before updating, make sure all your VM’s have been stopped. Run the below commands on each server in your cluster.

Proxmox VE 1.x is now End of Life (EoL)

Get Social!

proxmox_logoVersion 1.x of Proxmox VE is now end of life. This means that Proxmox will no longer be supported, bugs will not be fixed and security fixes will not be released. You will still receive the standard rift of Debian 6 patches and updates from the Debian repositories.

If you are still on version 1.x of Proxmox VE you should upgrade to Proxmox 2.2 as soon as possible. See the official Proxmox wiki on upgrading.

See our blog post on installing Proxmox 2 – Yes, I know it’s version 2.1 but, the steps are the same for Proxmox 2.2.

Proxmox 2.2 updates available

Proxmox 2.2 has some updates which have been pushed to the stable repository. There is no new functionality added with these updates, they are just bug fixes.

Reading the forum, there looks to be an issue with this update if you have turned off being able to login to SSH with passwords and enabled keys on your Proxmox host. It looks like the keys are removed and you will need to login to the local shell to re-create the keys. Updating a standard cluster works fine.

Before updating, make sure all your VM’s have been stopped. Run the below commands on each server in your cluster.

apt-get update
apt-get dist-upgrade

Restart all Proxmox servers to complete the installation.
