Hi, im a newbie to PVE and love it so much!!

Im trying to start a container in PVE 7.4 using a image from https://us.lxd.images.canonical.com/images/openeuler/22.03/amd64/cloud/20230601_16:40/rootfs.tar.xz

But failed with:
Code:

TASK ERROR: unable to create CT 101 - unable to detect OS distribution

Seems PVE will try to detected the lxc distro, is there a way to skip this check or how can i add supported for openEuler?
 
Hi,
you should be able to set the OS type to unmanaged. Then the detection, but also OS-type-specific setup will be skipped.

@fiona Thanks for your reply! the unmanaged option is not available in webUI, right?
Seems i should use `pct` from command-line directly.

Yes, I think because it's not an officially supported use-case by us. Note that you should be able to use
The special option syntax STORAGE_ID:SIZE_IN_GB for storage backedmount point volumes will automatically allocate a volume of the specified sizeon the specified storage. For example, calling -mp0 thin1:10,mp=/path/in/container will allocate a 10GB volume on the storage thin1 and replace the volume ID place holder 10 with the allocated volume ID, and setup the moutpoint in the container at /path/in/container
for mount points as well as rootfs to create new volumes on the fly. For all options see man pct.
