ProxCP Admin - Manage LXC Templates

From ProxCP Documentation


Before creating a new LXC service, you must add one or more LXC templates to ProxCP. Proxmox provides a bunch of pre-made LXC templates available for download or you can make your own. ProxCP does not supply any LXC templates as the Proxmox-specific templates are preferred.

To add a LXC template, click ADMIN > LXC > Manage LXC Templates. This page will scan your first Proxmox node for LXC templates that are not yet added in ProxCP then allow you to add them.

ProxCP assumes that all LXC templates saved here are available on all added Proxmox nodes.

Alternatively, you can add LXC templates manually. In the Friendly Name field, enter a name for the template such as "CentOS 7". In the volume ID field, enter the volume ID of the template. The format for this is {storage_name}:vztmpl/{file_name}. For example, if the LXC template was stored in the "local-lvm" Proxmox storage, the volume ID would be local-lvm:vztmpl/template.tar.gz.

Template Removal

This page allows Admins to delete LXC templates from ProxCP. This action does not delete the template file from Proxmox nodes.
