1.3.1. OS Installation (AS2023-TR4 – SuperMicro AMD Epyc Servers)¶
When installing Proxmox VE the hostname/node name must contain the domain, if no domain is available then simply use .local
Choose a suitable IP in your network’s CIDR and remember to use the correct keyboard layout, otherwise you’ll have a bit of a headache.
Recommended BIOS/UEFI Settings For Epyc Server¶
Set the NVMe disks to AMI Native Support in the BIOS, Firmware Section.
R/W Disc Reader in Legacy Support Mode
DISABLE NETWORK STACK
ALL PCI-e DEVICES IN LEGACY MODE (Except PXE)
DON’T FORGET TO SET THE BOOT ORDER CORRECTLY
(Deprecated) Common Installation Issues with PVE on ZFS RAID-10¶
If you wish to install the ROOT POOL (RPOOL) on ZFS with RAID 10 on NVMe drives through Software you must first install with RAID Z-1. It will then FAIL the installation due to the next error:
“Unable to mount Root Pool”
Then you can re-try the installation in RAID 10.
This issue is no longer present since Proxmox VE 6.0
