Getting ISO Images For Proxmox VE

Using local ISO with Proxmox VE. In order for you to be able to create a VM with promox, we need to have an ISO on the server locally.

To do this, if we are on the same network, we can secure copy the file from our local machine to the server. First navigate to the directory of the local file, then copy the local disk image to the server using scp or whatever other means of copying you want to do.

scp my-iso.iso [email protected]:/var/lib/vz/template/iso

Now that we have our disk image on the virtualization server, we need to refresh the page to be able to view that image as an option in the dropdown.
