[SOLVED] PM 2.0 - Storage ISOS not visible


New Member

I've got an issue concerning Storage iso files which are not visible.

On my systen I keep my isos in /vm/iso:

root@hype:/# ls -la /vm/iso/
total 3169216
drwxr-xr-x 3 root root 4096 Aug 8 18:14 .
drwxr-xr-x. 7 root root 4096 Aug 8 17:56 ..
-rwxr-xr-x 1 root root 177209344 May 12 22:41 debian-6.0.5-amd64-netinst.iso
-rwxr-xr-x 1 root root 676331520 May 22 23:07 Fedora-17-x86_64-Live-Desktop.iso
-rwxr-xr-x 1 root root 2388531200 Aug 2 11:45 FreeBSD-9.0-RELEASE-amd64-dvd1.iso
drwxr-xr-x 3 root root 4096 Aug 8 18:14 template

Everything has got 755 rights including parent folders.

Then in proxmox I have created a "Directory" storage called ISO-INSTALL (that means I click "Add" -> "Directory" -> I input the path there) .
However when I either want to create a virtual machine, or see what is in the container I can't see anything.

"pvesm list ISO-INSTALL" does not show anything as well.

What shall I do now?
