I installed Proxmox on Virtualbox during the boot grub sequence, after a proper login, nothing happens, the command "root@user: ~ #" wait.
(I am a beginner in linux).


Config:

General: Linux/Debiant64
Networking: Access by bridge / advanced: all authorized


I would like to know if it is the IP configuration starting installation that block the installation process.


Thanks.

Hi,
what do you mean with "nothing happens"?
Can you enter commands? Like
Code:
df -k
ls
pveversion -v
And before login you get an message, that you can connect with an browser - does that work?

BTW. pve is not made to run in an VM - it's for an baremetall installation.

Proxmox uses KVM to virtualize. This uses CPU (hardware) functionality: the VT extensions. I wonder if those can be accessed on an already virtualized CPU. In other words: perhaps you can't have
hardware:VM (PVE in virtualbox, which uses VT):guest VM.
Perhaps proxmox halts because it has no VT support.

Hi,
PVE works also without hardware virtualization - but not for kvm-VMs - openvz (container) only.

Hi,

Yes before login I'v got a message as : You can connect your browser to configure this server - connect to: https://10.0.0.15:8006/, but i think this must be
changed to : https://10.0.2.15:8006/, the machine show me that the server does not exist after this command:

nslookup
ipconfig

The result is : ;; connection timed out; no servers could be reached

I ran the command df -k filesystem shows me :

I meen nothing happens : the system is waiting for the command to go to the graphic page. How can i connect to my web browser ?
If pve is not running in an VM, I will try to the normal hardware installation.

Fred.
