Operation is carried out in 3 steps:
- Create your virtual machine in the traditional way,
- Download the qcow2 file,
- import it into the previously created machine.
These operations must be performed via the command line on the ProxMox server.
These operations cannot be performed via the Web interface.
Connect to your ProxyMox console and run this command: ( go to a directory with at least 3.2gb of free space)
wget https://esxi.b-cdn.net/artica-proxy-4.50.000000.qcow2 -O artica.qcow2
Run this command :
qm importdisk [vm-id] artica.qcow2 [storage pool]
Where vm-id is the ID number of your created virtual machine ( in our case 102 ) and storage pool is name of the storage system for your virtual machine ( in our case local )
The command wil be
qm importdisk 102 artica.qcow2 local
and the results will be :
Successfully imported disk as 'unused0:local:102/vm-102-disk-1.raw'
Click on the Virtual machine that you created.
Select "Hardware" tab.
On the right hand side, you will see the newly imported QCOW2 disk as unused disk.
Select the unused disk and then click "Edit" button.
Start your virtual machine and use the Network menu in order to change the default network address of the machine
