Proxmox 5.3 Release & GUI PCI Passthrough

This is a exciting news for all of you.

Proxmox just released their new 5.3 version.

It includes a lot of new features and bug fixes.

I just finished update my proxmox box to 5.3 version, the update was flawless and smooth. No reboot required.

If you are using a non-subscription version, you have to change the package list from the proxmox box.

Open up the /etc/apt/sources.list.d/pve-enterprise.list with your favorite editor

and you will see something like

deb https://enterprise.proxmox.com/debian/pve stretch pve-enterprise

If you did not purchase the subscription, then it will throw you some errors

you need to change it to

deb http://download.proxmox.com/debian/pve stretch pvetest

if you are done, you are ready to update to the lastest version of the Proxmox.

 

apt update && apt full-upgrade -y

 

it will update the repositories and upgrade to the lastest version

 

You can check the version on top left of the web interface.

 

There were a lot of updated features.

Official Youtube and release note

I personally think the biggest and most important feature is made the PCI passthrough easy on GUI.

As you can see, now you can passthrough the PCI Devices easily on GUI.

I have not tested this feature yet, but this feature existed on Proxmox for long time, so I believe this is work as i expected.

I will make a follow up post on how well this PCI passthrough on proxmox works
