Thanks again. I downloaded the template files .tar.gz and placed them in /var/lib/vz/template/cache/ but they don't show up under Create > Container. However, they do show under Applicances Templates but with Description "unknown".

I hope I don't have to restart because that would really be an inconvenience and maybe impossible on production systems.

Bruce,

If you look under the "Contributed Templates", there are two 5.5 templates.

Thanks guys. Amazing input here. I will look at those.

The templates listed for CentOS don't mention the minor version number (e.g. Show only v5 instead v5.1, v5.4, or v5.5). What is with that? Does that mean if CentOS-5-* is updated by "yum -y update" then it would upgrade to CentOS-5.5-*?

Thanks

Bruce,

You can create your own template from a pre-existing template. You can find some instructions at:

http://wiki.openvz.org/Creating_a_CentOS_5.0_Template
http://forum.proxmox.com/threads/452-Creating-custom-templates

I would also recommend reading about DAB on the Proxmox Wiki. It only creates Debian templates, but it is really nice.

Hi Everyone,

The templates that are listed/included in current version of Proxmox are from what source? Where can I find a CentOS 5.5? Can I easily make a template of CentOS 5.5 myself without facing trouble (e.g. compatibility, stability, etc...)?

In face, what if I do an install of a CentOS 5.5, build other applications on top of it and then turn it to a template for ease of use in future. Is that possible?

Thanks,
