Proxmox Image VMID


Jul 3, 2023
I configured Proxmox as a compute resource for foreman. I am trying to setup Foreman so that I can provision from template. I have a template located on 1 of my pve servers. But am stuck trying to figure out the VMID. I assumed the VMID was the number listed Infront of my template name inside of the web console. I tried using that no luck. I am setting the compute resource images but foreman is unable to find the vmid I provided.

I also tried the ids number cat /etc/pve/.vmlist no luck.
