KVM ISOs

Before creating a new KVM service, you must add one or more KVM ISOs to ProxCP.

To add a KVM ISO, click ADMIN > Manage KVM ISOs. In the Friendly Name field, enter a name for the ISO such as "CentOS 7". In the volume ID field, enter the volume ID of the ISO file. The format for this is {storage_name}:iso/{file_name}. For example, if the KVM ISO was stored in the "local-lvm" Proxmox storage, the volume ID would be local-lvm:iso/centos.iso.

ProxCP assumes that all KVM ISOs are available on all added Proxmox nodes.

KVM Templates

There is documentation regarding KVM templates here: ProxCP KVM Templates

On the admin side of things, you need to tell ProxCP about the templates on the ADMIN > Manage KVM Templates page.

  • Friendly Name: the friendly name to identify this template, such as "CentOS 7"
  • VMID: the VMID of the template in Proxmox
  • Template Type: whether the template is Linux or Windows. This setting determines if cloud-init is used or not among other VPS configuration options
  • Node: which node(s) is/are this template available on? Unlike ISOs and LXC templates, KVM templates do not need to be available on all Proxmox nodes
