Proxmox - Download ISOs

After having installed proxmox, you immediately want to go to the web panel and start creating some KVM guests. Unfortunately, there are no ISO files to create the guests from by default. However, you can just follow these easy steps to download them.


SSH into your proxmox server.

ssh root@my-proxmox-server-hostname-or-ip

Navigate to the relevant folder where we should store our ISO files

cd /var/lib/vz/template/iso

Use wget to download the relevant ISO file. The example below will download the Ubuntu 18.04 server ISO.

wget -O ubuntu-18.04-live-server.iso

Debian 11

wget -O debian-11-mini.iso

Debian 10

wget -O debian-10-mini.iso

Debian 9

Alternatively, here is Debian 9 net installer if you wish to use that instead.

wget -O debian-9-mini.iso
