Hi, I am relatively new to mining. I recently started a new project building a Multi-VM PC. The build hosts Proxmox and this is hosting VM’s for Win10, Mac OS Monterey, Linux etc.
While doing this I realized I could also use it for mining purposes and installed Hive OS to mainly mine ETH.
Fractal Define 7
be quiet! Dark Power Pro 12 1500 W
AsRock Taichi Z690
Intel i9 12900K
Corsair iCUE H150i ELITE LCD Liquid
ASUS Radeon RX 6800 XT 16GB
2x 32GB Corsair Dominator RAM
6x 8TB 3.5HDD
4x 1TB M.2 NVMe
I managed to install Hive OS on a VM using a 16GB Corsair USB 3.0 Stick and also set up the whole hive configuration for a GPU Rig.
I than thought it would be nice to have a second mining option running, using a few power from the CPU. I basically cloned the setup used for the GPU and installed another USB Stick and another VM just for the 2nd Rig. In Hive I can now see the two rigs but only the GPU seems to work. I was wondering if I do something wrong or if the setup is correct.
If I click on the CPU rig I only see 3.733kH which seems relatively low to me considering the 60MH average from the GPU. I am using srbminer.
Long story short…
Is the procedure correct to have two separate VMs one for the GPU Rig and one for the CPU Rig?
Thanks for your help
