Moving Proxmox VE Server to another Machine

Moving Proxmox to another Machine

The reason to move Proxmox VE server to another machine is, I got issue when booting up Proxmox installation USB disk from a MacBook Pro. So I decided to use existing Proxmox VE server USB disk boot from this MacBook Pro.


The previous Proxmox Virtual Environment USB disk, must be an UEFI disk, because MacBook Pro is a UEFI machine.

After boot

The network configuration /etc/network/interfaces needs to be changed due to different network interface name.

First, change the interface name, which can be found using ip a command, the two lines need to be updated.

auto lo
iface lo inet loopback

iface enp0s10 inet manual

auto vmbr0
iface vmbr0 inet static
        bridge-ports enp0s10
        bridge-stp off
        bridge-fd 0

The WIFI interface can be disabled if it is not used.

#iface wlp1s0 inet manual
