omg half of the time I have with the remote management interface is over and the stupid server is still doing backups 😭

Yay now it's speedrun installation time. Installing an OS which is completely new to me in under an hour!

Let's see how it goes!


I didn't make it. The remote mouse pointer wouldn't move and doing a hardware reset on the server and restarting the local client application broke the remote iso feature.

Well, I'll try again tomorrow or so...

Biggest surprise ever: The hoster offered to plug in a USB drive with the required ISO and prolonged the remote console a few minutes 🎉

This time there were no errors, I suspect the remote iso feature is not very good... :thaenking:

@absturztaube I tried installing Proxmox on a remote server with only 3h of remote console time where I wasted half of it with doing backups,

@absturztaube enterprise OS probably :D

Afaik I need the remote console for text-based installers too.

@lerk yeah sure. because installer probably doesn't provide ssh or something

@absturztaube But how to boot from iso when there's no way of getting into the BIOS/Boot menu? :D
