|OS type and version||Debian Bullseye 11|
|Cloudmin version||9.6 KVM|
I’ve recently installed Cloudmin on top of Webmin and after a few installation problems, it seems to be working. I have two KVM hosts on Debian 11, both running 5 VM’s right now.
I want to add my existing KVM guests (or “Instances” I suppose). However, I’m unable to run “Find KVM Instances” - when I do, it shows the five VM’s, but each ends with an error: “could not work out primary disk image”.
The format of the disks are qcow2, but reading (outdated) information suggests that only raw formats are supported. So, I converted one of the disks of the VM to raw format, and it produces the same error message along with the other unconverted VM’s.
(n.b.: the outdated documentation includes documentation on Virtualmin’s site, such as: Managing Virtual Domains – Virtualmin - none of the options that are displayed here are in my version of Cloudmin, and the documentation isn’t versioned or dated, so I don’t know how old it actually is, or when it was last updated. Also, the Help button in “Find KVM Instances” produces this error: “Error Failed to read help file /usr/share/webmin/server-manager/help/findkvm.html”)
I’ve tried to add an instance manually, but the “KVM Process to Manage” field is blank, and results in an error when I try to add the existing instance (“Failed to add system: no KVM process selected”).
Is there a way to ultimately manage and import existing KVM VM’s running qcow2 format into Cloudmin? Or is this not supported in any way?
