Proxmox VE 8.0.3 - Post install (bash) script not working

hi all,
I'm quite new to Proxmox and I'm trying to set up a server and I'm trying to use this post install script bash -c "$(wget -qLO -", but I can't get any bash script running; it just does nothing. I've read that it might be a network issue probably linked to DNS, but I don't know how to figure out exactly.
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
Its generally not a good idea to blindly run shell scripts from internet. You should strive to examine the script and understand what it is doing. Even if the source is generally trusted, history knows precedents when accounts have been taken over and malicious was code inserted.
If you suspect that you have connectivity/DNS issues - split the script execution:
- first download it "wget ......" and remove -q argument (man wget)
- run the script and add -x if you prefer more details

good luck

Most likely you just need to update your PBS Network settings to have DNS point to your router's IP address.
