Proxmox Node Management
The Proxmox VE node management tool (pvenode) allows to control node specific settings and resources.
Currently pvenode allows to set a node’s description and to manage the node’s SSL certificates used for the API and the web GUI through pveproxy.
Wake-on-LAN (WoL) allows to switch on a sleeping computer in the network by sending a magic packet. At least one NIC must support this feature and the respective option needs to be enabled in the computers firmware (BIOS/UEFI) configuration. The option name can vary from Enable Wake-on-Lan to Power On By PCIE Device, check your motherboards vendor manual, if unsure. ethtool can be used to check the WoL configuration of <interface> by running:
ethtool <interface> | grep Wake-on
pvenode allows to wake sleeping members of a cluster via WoL using the command:
pvenode wakeonlan <node>
This broadcasts the WoL magic packet on UDP port 9, containing the MAC address of <node> obtained from the wakeonlan property. The node specific wakeonlan property can be set by the following command:
pvenode config set -wakeonlan XX:XX:XX:XX:XX:XX
