Here is how to add a Debain 11 Cloud Image to ProxMox so that it is a template. Most came from here. However, it was not setup for Debian 11 nor was it setup for local-lvm. So, here is how to get Debian 11 loaded into ProxMox
cd ~ # Get the latest image from debian... wget https://cdimage.debian.org/images/cloud/bullseye/latest/debian-11-generic-amd64.qcow2 # create vm called debian11-cloud with 2048 memory and net0 at vmbr0 qm create 9110 --name debian11-cloud --memory 2048 --net0 virtio,bridge=vmbr0 # now make into a proxmox compatible image file. qm importdisk 9110 debian-11-generic-amd64.qcow2 local-lvm -format qcow2 # now attach it to scsi interface as a disk qm set 9110 --scsihw virtio-scsi-pci --scsi0 local-lvm:vm-9110-disk-0 # create the boot image disk qm set 9110 --ide2 local-lvm:cloudinit --boot c --bootdisk scsi0 --serial0 socket --vga serial0 #Oh, resize the disk from 2G to 32G qm resize 9110 scsi0 +30G # set dhcp or static qm set 9110 --ipconfig0 ip=dhcp ##qm set 9110 --ipconfig0 ip=10.10.10.222/24,gw=10.10.10.1 # Copy over the public ssh key qm set 9110 --sshkey ~/.ssh/msi.pub # Set Debian password qm set 9110 --cipassword SomePassword!! # done now dump the user qm cloudinit dump 9110 user #remove downloaded image. NOTE: Below will remove ALL debian-11 with extension qcow2!!! You have been warned!!! rm debian-11*.qcow2
Other Things To Do
Fix for Docker and Kubernetes
Once this is done then it is time to update the distro. For me, the grub needed to be updated. Why? because of this. So, follow Debian11 and Rancher2.6 and get er’ done.
Also, if installing docker on this cloud vm follow the rancher fix post.
