I went back to utilize an old Machine with Proxmox for containers but also wanted to have a platform to play with Docker. So I though pimping the Promox server is the best solution.

The Steps are easy to get docker running but since Proxmox offers the best GUI for lxc I needed something similar for the docker containers.

Note: This DOES NOT add Docker into the Proxmox GUI itself. I’m adding a separate web page for docker running in a container by itself.

Install ZFS Native on Kanotix / Debian Squeeze / Proxmox 2.1 This whole thing below is obsolete. I created a new post with up to date details for Debian 7.0 Wheezy Ok, Ok, I admit, I’m going really crazy now…. as I described here -> Linux: Install Proxmox Virtual Environment on Debian 6.0 Squeeze Distro (Kanopix) I have Proxmov Virtual Environment running on Kanotix Debian. I now spotted that I’m running slowly low of free disk space. I could mount space from my NAS via NFS-CIFS or ISCSI but that’s kind of too easy and for testing purpose the break to success ratio is too low 🙂 . And BTW I love ZFS. so I install it (cause I want to deduplicate and compress). Based on Proxmox http://pve.proxmox.com/wiki/ZFS …This is pretty straight forward and almost too easy too. Kanotix is using Debian and not ubuntu and certainly not the latest ubuntu so we need […]

Install Proxmox Virtual Environment on Debian 6.0 (Squeeze) system Problem: I have a server which I use for more things at the same time. It’s used as a MediaCenter connected to the TV, as a Monitoring server and now I want to run virtualisation on it as well since the box runs anyway pretty much the whole day. For the virtualisation I selected to use Proxmox since I consider it as one of the best vs easiest to manage in the open-source world. You can find more about Proxmox here http://www.proxmox.com/ Biggest Problem is that Proxmox is running on Debian and it runs on Debian 6.0 Squeeze (stable) only which is slightly outdated (not to mention ancient). So I had to reinstall the server using a Debian 6.0. But there are not many Distro’s out there still running on Debian 6.0. I found http://www.kanotix.com which has a release called Kanotix Hellfire 2012-05. […]
