i have a VM on hetzner cloud (KVM) and i need to migrate in my proxmox server.
VM running linux almalinux.

which is best pratice?

i think can i use dd to create an image from hetzner VM to a my sftp storage (or other)
then i can restore with boot sytemrescue on my proxmox and write image with dd

It might work?

i think use clonezilla but i don't know about start it on hetzner...

thank you in advance

i don't know about hetzner cloud, but the easiest way is probably to recreate a VM in proxmox with similar specifications and import the raw disk image to Proxmox VE. Have a look at https://pve.proxmox.com/wiki/Migration_of_servers_to_Proxmox_VE for some examples on how to achieve this for different hypervisors.
thank you for reply.
i know about that page.

but i can't import raw image because i can't access to hypervisor...
i can access only on my VM (kvm)
so i think use guide to P2V (from bare metal to proxmox)
but the guide seems is only for windows...

or i change a question...
how i can migrate phisical linux server to proxmox?

thank you
