  1. Maybe a late reply, but you can set the bootloader to boot from usb. You need to open the unit and solder a serial port, then you can access the bios and change the boot settings.this guide will show you how to achieve this.
  2. I can confirm that this works on ESXI. Power consumption is a bit higher on ESXi ( 6-8 watts for proxmox with powertop vs 16 watts for esxi with low power settings).
  3. Thx, I will try that option. Reason for proxmox was due to limitations on ESX when I had only 4 sata ports and 4 passed through disks. You couldn't install ESX on an usb stick and use an usb drive as storage and passthrough a zwave usb stick at the same time.
  4. Hi, I"m in the following situation: DSM: DSM 6.2.2-24922 Update 2 Loader 1.04b I'm running proxmox on a asrock J5005 m-itx motherboard with the sata controller passed through. I want to migrate to my new motherboard, an asrock H370-m/itx with an i3-8100. This board has 6 sata ports and I want to passthrough 4 ports. Unfortunately, all six ports are on the same controller, so controller passthrough is out of the question( I like to use the nvme sata slot as bootdisk). Disk setup: 2x 980GB SSD and 2x 3TB drives. The problem is with the ssd drives: if I do a controller passthrough, drives are visible as ssd drives in XPenology and trim is possible. If I do a raw disk passthrough( qm set <vmid> -sataX /dev/by-id , xpenology boots, I can see the disks, but they are seen as normal HDD's, not SSD's. So SSD Trim is not availlable/usable I think, virtio drivers are not availlable with 1.04b loader( so I cannot enable the discard option.) The goal: Run proxmox as hyper visor Get the ssd's recognised as ssd's in xpenology to avoid wear out. Keep the current nvme ssd as boot drive. Not my favorite possibilities: - boot Proxmox from an usb disk and do sata controller passthrough, loosing the nvme disk. - Manage raid config in Proxmox instead of DSM, but this makes it less transportable. Any other ideas?
