Please encourage your clients and organizations to become Proxmox subscribers so more developers can be hired to implement latest & greatest technologies.

Just like most other users, I use proxmox for personal use as a Home Server.
I'm not totally against subscribing to support... but at the moment I'm not yet convinced to stay on proxmox.
Indeed, the first VM I'm building, a Windows with GPU passthrough, Proxmox Freeze because its Kernel is not able to handle the D3 State of the PCI slots.
Second VM I'm building, a simple OS update leads to the error present in this topic.
And before I could create VMs, I fought to get a stable Proxmox using RAID (so ZFS) because the basic configuration caused problems (I forgot the details).
Anyway, I think I'll wait and see how my experience with the tool evolves before signing for at least 1 year of collaboration... :rolleyes:


Regarding this topic, the issue can be solved as explained by first OP editing file :

nano /usr/share/perl5/PVE/LXC/Setup/CentOS.pm

with

Code:
if ($1 >= 5 && $1 <= 8.1) {

instead of

if ($1 >= 5 && $1 <= 8) {

(maybe a wildcard can also be used ? 8* ?)

If someone can push that edit into proxmox Git it could be nice for other users...

Same as above comment. I'm using Proxmox for home virtualization. Anyway, it should be no problem to support you with community license, but I've two small systems and one laptop for quorum, so it's 3 licenses, around a half of current price of my hardware, this is little but too much for me.
My Employer is really big company, so everything on VMware or mainframe, I've less then zero power here.

Makes sense to me - that's why I suggested a multi-system deal, we have a number of clients with 2 or three staff members, I would like to put them all on Community licenses, but it's not prudent for these small firms to spend the $100 for community licenses.

OTOH, I like to remind the community that it benefits us all if we show the Proxmox team a bit of love with subscription revenue.

But without community license I'm also useful to Proxmox when reporting issue like this (this was just small) with fix.
Think about some Proxmox beginner will discover this issue, report it here asking for help. So I saved some Proxmox stuff time = money ;)
