HOWTO : Install Proxmox VE 1.3 on debian 5.01 (Lenny) AMD64

Since disk image of Proxmox VE 1.3 cannot install to my RAID 5EE or 6 hard drive space that larger than 2TB. I have a 3.6TB RAID 5EE hard storage. Therefore, I install it by packages on debian Lenny AMD64.

Installation of debian

Download the netinstall disk image of debian 5.01 (Lenny) AMD64 (should be AMD64, others are not suitable) and install to the server as is. Make sure you choose the entire disk with LVM. At the end of installation, you will be asked to select which services or servers to be installed. You just select "Base Standard" only.

Installation of Proxmox VE

Step 1 :

Log in the debian server as root and edit the following file.

nano /etc/apt/sources.list

Add the following line at the end of the file.

deb http://download.proxmox.com/debian lenny pve

Get and install the repository key.

wget -O- "http://download.proxmox.com/debian/key.asc" | apt-key add -

Update the repository and system.

apt-get update
apt-get upgrade

Step 2 :

Install Proxmox VE kernel.

apt-get install pve-kernel

Then, edit the following file when need.

nano /boot/grub/grub.cfg

Or

Delete the debian official kernel and image. Then issue the following command.

update-grub

Reboot debian server and make sure you select the PVE kernel when boot at the Grub Menu.

Step 3 :

Log in debian server as root and issue the following commands.

apt-get install proxmox-ve ntp postfix pve-manager

Connect to Proxmox VE web interface.

https://your_debian_server_ip

e.g. https://192.168.1.10

Step 4 :

Configure the vmbr0 interface at "System", "Network".

Configure bridge vmbr0

IP Address : 192.168.1.10 # your debian server's IP
Subnet Mask : 255.255.255.0
Gateway : 192.168.1.1 # your router or gateway's IP

Reboot your debian server.

Enjoy!
