Ok, so I can change corosync's default configuration without having to fear that the next update will break everything ? Also about corosync, I have Dell Hardware with iDRAC, is it possible to use the iDRAC (or just ipmi) as fencing device ? I've seen that only APC PDUs are currently supported, so is that hard work to add new fencing devices ? > > - Is there any work on getting glusterfs for PVE ? (bricks and

The API allows virtual machines creation ? (I don't see it in the doc : http://pve.proxmox.com/pve2-api-doc/) I am having troubles with PVE 2.0 installation : Installation process from ISO fails at grub installation, so I started in debug mode and at the end, mounted the boot partition (+ /proc and /dev) on /target then chroot to /target and update-grub + grub-install. That allowed me to boot into proxmox. Where should I report that problem ? Then, I tried to access to http://myserver:8006 but no daemon listens on port 8006. Which one should ? Apache ? Apache is not running because of a missing file in /etc/pve/local/... but there is nothing in /etc/pve, after some research, it appears that it should be the mount point for pmxcfs, how can I mount it ? For info, when I try to do an aptitude upgrade (in case iso build wasn't up to date), I get the following error (doesn't sound good ;-)) : root at infrahv2:/etc# LANG=C aptitude upgrade The following packages will be upgraded: vzctl The following partially installed packages will be configured: clvm fence-agents-pve libpve-access-control libpve-storage-perl proxmox-ve-2.6.32 pve-cluster pve-manager qemu-server redhat-cluster-pve 1 packages upgraded, 0 newly installed, 0 to remove and 0 not upgraded.
