Some time ago I needed a virtual #ARM machine and while I’m not entirely sure any more why that was I did seem to have an inspirational moment and made a template of this. Here is what the #qemu config for #Proxmox _may_ look like:
agent: 1 arch: aarch64 bios: ovmf boot: cdn bootdisk: scsi0 cores: 2 efidisk0: misfits-btrfs:501/vm-501-disk-0.raw,size=64M ipconfig0: ip=192.168.2.251/32,gw=192.168.2.1 memory: 1024 name: arm-test2 nameserver: 192.168.2.1 net0: virtio=96:79:F4:02:A1:6B,bridge=vmbr2 numa: 0 ostype: l26 scsi0: misfits-btrfs:501/vm-501-disk-1.raw,size=8G scsi1: local:iso/debian-10.6.0-arm64-netinst.iso,media=cdrom scsi2: misfits-btrfs:501/vm-501-cloudinit.raw,media=cdrom,size=4M scsihw: virtio-scsi-pci serial0: socket smbios1: uuid=63fe535c-1507-4528-8dee-2bd2d59b57f8 sockets: 2 vga: serial0
It makes sense to install the package
cloud-init to some stuff can be set from outside of the machine.
…and yes, it’s just as slow as expected from an ARM 🤓
I’m also not entirely sure if this is really officially featured by Proxmox (just like btrfs 🤷) but the machine was doing it’s job without an issue for years and I did just replay the template on VE 7.4 so I guess it’s fine 🤷
