Published by Tobias Hofmann on July 24, July 24, OVA is a virtual appliance, ready to run on a hypervisor. This works as long as your hypervisor is capable of reading an OVA file. Proxmox does not understand OVA, and you cannot use the image out of the box. Reading the provided VM definition is not possible. First, create a new virtual machine definition in Proxmox. You are going to import the disk image from the ova file, not the virtual machine definition. Therefore, you must first create a VM, this creates the necessary information in Proxmox, and then you are adding a disk to this VM. It seems that you have to add a disk. The disk will be deleted later, the configuration entered here is not important. The new VM will appear in the list of available VMs in your server. Note the ID: and the available storage locations. Open the VM configuration and got to Hardware. The disk you added in the wizard is listed. This disk must be removed. Copy ova file to Proxmox server. Unzip OVA file. OVA is a zip file, you can simply unzip it to see its content. It contains the VM definition ovf and the vm disk vmdk. To import the image, you need to specify the VM and location where the disk is imported to. This information is available in Proxmox. You can see a list when looking at the server at the left menu. This starts the import process. Basically, the vmdk file is copied to the storage local-lvm. After the import finishes, the disk is listed in Proxmox. The disk is now available in Proxmox and added to the VM, but not usable. The disk must be assigned to the VM. To do so, open the VM definition and go to hardware. Here you can specify how the disk is accessed by the VM. SCSI should work. If you get errors, try IDE, etc. As result, the disk is added to VM and can be used. Doing stuff with SAP since Open, web, UX, cloud. I am not a Basis guy, but very knowledgeable about Basis stuff, as it's the foundation of everything I do DevOps. Performance is king, and unit tests is something I actually do. This will delete the disk file. That disk you should not be using anywhere else. It was only created by Proxmox VM wizard and is save to delete as it contains no data.

I installed proxmox on a single GB hard drive and I would like to add a second identical hard drive to put more VM's on. I already tried once, and didn't get very far. I added it and formatted it as an ext4, but when I went to use the disk, it said only 8GB was available. That's not quite right. So I did some searching and found that I had to make the device ID 8e for a linux lvm. After I did this, it said I had to restart, so I did What did I do wrong? And how do I do it right?
