I am trying to create a turnkey Linux file server (version 15.0-1) lxc container but I can’t get past the initial setup screen. I can create an Ubuntu container but not one from the turnkey template.

I have tried unprivileged and privileged but neither will let me proceed. My pve is installed as zfs mirror and my data pool is a zfs raid 10 setup. This is new Proxmox install and I have not created any containers or vms yet.

Do I need to enter an ssh public key to proceed or is there a problem/bug with the turnkey templates? I can’t figure out what I am missing.
 
The pve ct wizard. I filled in all fields, except the ssh public key field, but the next screen tab stays grayed out so I can’t proceed. I have not tried creating the lxc container from the command line yet.

I found a thread on turnkey (https://www.turnkeylinux.org/forum/support/tue-20190326-0816/unable-add-turnkey-container-proxmox) which appears to be the same issue. Is this still the only way for installing turnkey templates on Proxmox? If so, why bother to include them in Proxmox?
 
a that point you have to either provide a password, or a ssh public key to be able to access the container..

I did enter a password but no public ssh key and the GUI’s Next button is still not activated so I can’t proceed to the next screen.
 
Could you upload a Screenshot at this point where you can not go forward?

Here is the screen shot, notice that both previous and next buttons are grayed out, ie no option to proceed

Did you see the red border at the field 'hostname'? It should be a fqdn and not a name for the VM itself.
 
Thanks! I didn’t even notice it. Change value and was able to proceed with the installation.
