Kemp Virtual LoadMaster (VLM) on Proxmox


Jul 12, 2019

we are using Proxmox 5.4 :
pve-manager/5.4-10/9603c337 (running kernel: 4.15.18-12-pve)

We want to install Kemp Virtual LoadMaster (VLM) from Linux disk image available on the Kemp Website.

We have tried to install it from the "Create CT" fonctionnality by uploading the tar.gz file into the /var/lib/vz/template/cache folder.

The uploaded template is available in the GUI of proxmox but when we try to create the CT, the following error occured :

Thanks for you help.

Best regards.
You try to run a VM virtual disk as a lxc container, this cannot work.
Hi tom,

Is there another way to use the image in proxmox?

Thank you for your help.

Thank you for your help.

Ask the creator/vendor of this image file, I do not know what they packaged into it.
