Commissioning Proxmox VMs


I’m having problems adding and commissionig a Proxmox 7.1 VM with MAAS.
I can Power it on, but commissioning then stalls.
Is there some walkthrough to do it properly?
Thank you.

Ok, did commission the VM as soon as I put the machine on the right VLAN, with MAAS’ DHCP.

Question: How can I commission machines (or VMs) on VLANs with external DHCP?

Commissioned and tried to deploy: gone kernel panic…

hi, @urbaman ,

Yes, external DHCP can be used, but we need some information?

Identify your version and build

We need to know the version and build (and packaging format) that you’re running.

If you’re using a snap

If you’re using a snap, execute snap listmaas at the command line, which will return some lines like this:

Name  Version                       Rev    Tracking     Publisher   Notes
maas  3.0.0~beta2-9796-g.2182ab55f  13292  latest/edge  canonical✓  -

Please add the output of that command to a comment on this post.

If you’re using a Debian package

If you’re using a deb, execute apt list maas at the command line, and enter whatever it returns into a comment to this post, as in the snap example above.

Using CLI, UI, or API?

Next, you’ll need to specify which interface you’re using, and generally what command(s) you were attempting.

Explain how to reproduce your issue

In addition to the explanation above, you should create a step-by-step list of what you did to reproduce the problem.

Locate and capture logfiles

If at all possible, capture at least the following logfiles, for the time period surrounding your error situation:

  1. maas.log
  2. regiond.log
  3. rackd.log
  4. the rsyslog file of the affected machine(s), if it exists.

On snap, these files are located as follows:

  • /var/snap/maas/common/log/maas.log
  • /var/snap/maas/common/log/regiond.log
  • /var/snap/maas/common/log/rackd.log
  • /var/snap/maas/common/log/rsyslog/$MACHINE_NAME/$RELEVANT_DATE/messages

If you’re using packages, you’ll find the files in these locations:

  • /var/log/maas/maas.log
  • /var/log/maas/regiond.log
  • /var/log/maas/rackd.log
  • /var/log/maas/rsyslog/$MACHINE_NAME/$RELEVANT_DATE/messages

Ideally, you’d want to put these in a pastebin and link the pastebin location in your comment.

Thanks for this. We’ll need at least some of this additional information in to help answer.
