WebVirtMgr alternatives

I am also using WebVirtMgr because it is/was integrated with NS.
I was also using Fedora + Virt-Manager.

I will miss this feature in NS …

What makes you think that? Of course Proxmox supports software RAID; it does so using ZFS, which is one of its bigger benefits.

I almost get beaned here regard my ideas.
What is the plan?
soft/hardware/no at all/ where we are going? ok RAID and options and whats then when we don’t sale our hardware?

Please, this comment is inappropriate here and some people flagged it.
@giacomo has explained why we have removed it :point_down:

This has nothing to do with Open Source or Subscription. Just with “we don’t have bandwidth to support that”. Feel free to find an alternative (or update webvirtmgr), support it and adding it to the nethforge

I tried proxmox with zfs, until the zfs raid crash…after it was tears time.

The second time was to install debian with software linux raid, then i installed proxmox.

It rocks and I know how to rebuild my raid :slight_smile:

I have mixed feelings about ZFS. I use it for my nas, but if it goes down, its not good. As long as you have redundancy you will be fine though, zfs has some pretty awesome features.

Hi Dan,

this here makes me think of that :slight_smile:


And Yes, I would be able to install MDADM, but this will trail a rat-tail … e.g. this would require postfix to deliver status mails … and so on and so on. But to be honest - I am absolutly not used to ZFS… I will have a look at it.

From that page:

Pretty clear–doesn’t support mdadm, but it does software RAID using ZFS.

Thanks for tip on Proxmox … this is a dream … up and running.

Perfect. No need for WebVirtMgr anymore.


I could be wrong but the developer started a new project :-?

I still maintain a few VM’s running on plain KVM. I use Virtual Machine Manager installed on my laptop to manage them.


really a teaser for now, but I am working on it :
