Proxmox 3.0 is now available – with updates!
Category : Tech News
The guys building Proxmox have not been messing about; in the past couple of weeks we have seen a major release of Proxmox V3.0 and a few updates. We now have qemu templates which we can clone as many times as required, as a whole new guest or a thinly provisioned guest linked to the clone. With the latest updates we now have storage migration which enables us to move a qemu guests storage to a new storage type.
You can download the ISO from http://www.proxmox.com/downloads/proxmox-ve/17-iso-images
Highlights of the 3.0 release:
- Based on Debian 7.0 (Wheezy)
- new VM clone feature
- new event driven API server (pveproxy)
- completely replace apache2
- efficient support for HTTP keep-alive
- support bootlogd (boot log can be viewed on the GUI)
- update qemu-kvm to 1.4.1
And the recent update:
- Storage migration
There is an upgrade script to upgrade from version 2.3 to 3 however as the new version is now based on Debian 7.0 instead of Debian 6. To make sure there are no left over packages or files floating around, I would recommend a fresh install of Proxmox version 3.0.
Don’t forget to update once you have installed Proxmox 3.0 with apt-get by using the below commands in a terminal. Before updating, make sure all your VM’s have been stopped. Run the below commands on each server in your cluster.
apt-get update apt-get dist-upgrade
Restart all Proxmox servers to complete the installation.
If you would like to try the in-place upgrade path, see the Proxmox Wiki for more information.
