Proxmox Tips

Accessing your VM

Accessing local hard drive

You can add local hard drives directly to a VM.

Where you have to replace :

  • 101 with your VMid
  • scsi0 with your dest driver (could be ideX, scsiX,…)
  • /dev/sdd with the hard drive you want

Note that :

  • you have to be very carefull that no more than a VM use a disk in the same time
  • you must give the whole disk, not only a partition ; but then you will be able to mount only one partition of that disk

Have a better VGA driver

Proxmox/KVM use by default the cirrus driver. But I have experienced some trouble using VNC with this driver. Instead you can use the std VGA driver. This driver works well, but you may only have 800×600 resolution on Linux. To have more, you can update the vgabios.bin file located in /usr/share/kvm with the one available on the Bochs website (http://www.nongnu.org/vgabios/)

Then stop your VM and start it again (restart is not enough), and it should be better.

Accessing your VM

Use TigerVNC
