    Where can I get a copy of this version: Proxmox VE 3.0 ISO of proxmox. We have a bunch of servers that are running this version, and upgrading is not an option right now.

    afaik, it is not possible (not even torrent links), they offer only last 1-2 versions, and I never understood why...

    if someone finds a place to share, we could upload our previous versions there... I have some, including proxmox-ve_3.0-0428106c-13.iso

    Because newer versions are fully compatible and contain less bugs.

    Sorry Dietmar, I understand why people shoud upgrade they systems - if possible, but stil don't get why I can still dowload
    http://cdimage.debian.org/mirror/cdimage/archive/3.1_r0/i386/iso-cd/debian-31r0-i386-netinst.iso

    but can't download 3.0 ISO: it's just an example, I don't need it, but once I thought to write something about the pve history, with screenshots and command examples, but I can't because I can't go back to older versions.
    Just an example.

    I guess it's expensive to have people downloading large, obsolete iso files. But still, someone could need them, for whatever reason.
    Is it ok for you having others to share them (say) on archive.org?

    I don't think it makes sense distribute old software.

    ...nice to not answer questions saying again what was clear from the start. When you're using that particular version (like op), that is not old software, it's current.;)

    If you'r so against old software,
    * why there's still http://forum.proxmox.com/forums/12-Proxmox-VE-1-x-Installation-and-configuration ?
    Latest 1.x version was from 27.9.2011, and installation and configuration it still supported? But users can't re/install 3.0 on an existing 3.0 nodes cluster?
    * why 2.3 iso is still downloadable, while 3.0 is no more? link

    :confused:

    I think you (as proxmox) are deciding the sense for pve users, not only here, but in other fields of this project. It is not a bad project/community (and I've subscribed my cluster nodes, btw): it works, and has lot of good ideas in it, but lacks and refuses many others, and I feel it is really weird if you compare it to most other floss project and communities, like Debian itself, your main upstream. It is more proxmox and less community, just because of what proxmox decides/imposes, imho. This happens sometimes in forums, wiki, downloads, repositories, at least.

    When someone (usually using other virtual environments) asks me "how it is" I can only answer that. It just works, it's powerful, flexible to many extents, but be warned that you could feel that developers/maintainers listen mostly what they feel it's right, not really what users feel they need, sometimes. I don't like that, really, it's the worst aspect of this project. That, and the lack of good, structured, documentation. :(

    Back to the iso, in topic, users will (probably should) share your iso elsewhere, anyway, there are so many free possibilities... if someone wish to discuss above topics, I could argument better, but let's use a specific thread. :p

    Thanks,
    Marco

    We usually make old version available if someone request it, so this whole thing is a non-issue for me.

    Yes, we always do what we feel is right.

    and sometimes you may be wrong, too, as anybody else ;-)
