  1. One-Liner After Install

    Not sure if anyone has done this already (because I haven't looked) but here is a one-liner I use after I install Proxmox on my servers. It does 4 things. 1) places pve-no-subscription in the /etc/apt/sources.list file 2) comments out the pve-enterprise.list 3) apt update && apt...
  2. [SOLVED] Proxmox install (local) minimal install

    I usually use the ISO to install Proxmox but it's very wasteful of drive space where it will automatically allocate about 100 GB to the local storage. Is there a way to tell Proxmox not to use that much space or do you have to install the OS First and then add Proxmox? If you have to install...

  7. Default install size

    It seems as if the default install sets local at 100 GB. That's way overkill for my scenarios. Is there a way to change that upon install or after install (before adding VM's)?
