    I've created an ESXi 8 guest inside of PVE 8. And I have two questions: Is there a guest agent that's capable of running on the ESXi guest? Should the "QEMU Guest Agent" option be enabled in the VM's system tab? TIA, Eric Pretorious Reno, Nevada

    I realize that this is niche, but here I am.] I want to teach some people how to use proxmox and for that a brand new proxmox instance would be ideal. It turns out that the easiest way to do that for me would be to run proxmox inside a VM inside my usual proxmox instance. However, proxmox...

    Proxmox guest VMs under nested virtualization do not apply DHCPOFFER replies

    I've read through dozens of similar posts, but none seem to relate to this specific issue, and it's a weird one. If I install Proxox 7.4VE as a guest VM under an existing VMware environment (on metal), the networking/DHCP/everything in VE works as expected. If I then install an Ubuntu guest VM...
