In this guide, we will using Proxmox VE 8.0 that we deployed before. We will cover about how to start a VM and LXC instance, also about how to create template for VM from cloud-image files.
We will use Ubuntu 22.04 LTS as our base OS.
- Go to Node -> Select storage node for images (local-zfs_images)
- Go to ISO images
We have 2 choice for importing ISO files, either upload it from our local machine or download from internet URL
- After we successfully import the ISO files, they will appear on menu
We can create Vm from anywhere inside Proxmox because the menu is on the top right bar
Add disk for our VM. Here we can choose our VM disk storage, disk size, and other configuration. We can also add secondary disk here. If your disk storage is SSD-based, we recommend to check the SSD emulation box for better performance
Make sure to not overestimated CPU and memory to avoid high resource usage and resource fighting between VM and Host
Because we create VM using ISO files, we still need to install our OS using conventional way. In the next section we will cover about using ready to use cloud-image file to create a VM template that doesn’t need OS installation steps.
