Proxmox 4.4 Extreme Network Setup (Setup and fixes)

First we install needed software packages

Proxmox VE No-Subscription Repository

root@cloud:~# update -y
root@cloud:~# update dist-upgrade

Don’t hurt me about RFC RFC2606, because I subdomain everything to sweethome and “local.” is allowed in time of this post.

root@localhost:~# hostnamectl set-hostname cloud.sweethome.local

root@localhost:~# reboot

After reboot we login again as root

root@cloud:~# apt-get install install isc-dhcp-server bind9 ntpdate ntp

Fix bind9 with appamor

root@cloud:~# echo ‘/run/systemd/journal/dev-log rw,’ >> /etc/apparmor.d/local/usr.sbin.named

root@cloud:~# systemctl restart apparmor.service

Enable IP 4v forward in root@cloud:~# nano /etc/sysctl.conf
#net.ipv4.ip_forward=1 to

We do not need to reboot now:

root@cloud:~# echo 1 > /proc/sys/net/ipv4/ip_forward

We sync local time is better for lxc containers.

root@cloud:~/systemctl stop ntp

Replace my local ntp server in

“root@cloud:~# vi /etc/ntp.conf”


server iburst
server iburst
server iburst
server iburst

Now we update our local time with time server.

root@cloud:~# ntpdate

root@cloud:~# systemctl start ntp
root@cloud:~# systemctl enable ntp

What we got now:

  • Bind9 Ready for setup
  • isc-dhcpd ready for setup
  • ipforward v4
  • time sync
