Issues integrating ProxMox and OpenNebula

Please, describe the problem here and provide additional information below (if applicable) …
I am attempting to follow the instructions to integrate a ProxMox node as a resource in OpenNebula.

Deb11 for the Pmox
CentOS 8 for OpenNebula

Steps to reproduce:

Current results:

A list of QEMU package dependencies that can not be installed. The opennebula-node-kvm.deb relies on several dependencies, but the QEMU dependencies attempt to kick ProxMox-VE out, effectively killing Proxmox. I attempted to manually add the dependent packages manually one by one. Anything QEMU-* related attempts to kick out PmoxVE from the system.

Expected results:
Apt successfully installed opennebula-node-kvm.

Proxmox OS is a heavily modded version of a debian distro. As a result, it is not a supported platform for KVM nodes. Why would you even want a Proxmox node being controlled by an OpenNebula frontend ? If for some reason you think this is a good idea, you can try hacking it by installing OpenNebula from source, avoiding all of the package metadata limitations.

Hi, I think it could be great to have proxmox integration through api, like vmware for example.
(proxmox don’t use libvirt)

A big missing feature in proxmox, is when you have multiple proxmox clusters (as you can’t have more than 20~30 nodes in a proxmox cluster), to have a central location.
Another great feature of opennebula is that is more focused client portal ““cloud”” with multi-tenancy and other ““cloud”” features.

They are a multi-cluster management feature on the roadmap on proxmox, but no date/year.
(I known a lot of proxmox users requesting it)

I’m myself a proxmox dev contributor since 2010, using it in my hosting company.
But I’m a poor ruby developper.

@dclavijo - Basically, the familiar front-end can stay, and leaving one VM platform for another en masse is the goal. Like @Alexandre_Derumier said, and API component would be an absolute gift.

Hello @Alexandre_Derumier and @seansrighthere,

As Daniel mentioned, there are a couple of options:

  1. Either you can try and install OpenNebula from source.
  2. File an Issue on the Github Repo.
  3. Or, as an alternative, develop an integration like the one we had for LXD.

Please note that we support distros like:
Ubuntu, Debian, AlmaLinux, RockyLinux, Oracle Linux.
Other distros (Arch, for example) are not supported, and you won’t be able to install OpenNebula on them, unless you install it as mentioned above.
