Known Limitations

This section is here to both serve as a reminder to contributers of areas for improvement, but also as a "head's up" to users so you don't have to run into it and then find it buried in some logged issue.

  • proxmox_vm_qemu.disk.size attribute does not match what is displayed in the Proxmox UI.
  • Updates to proxmox_vm_qemu resources almost always result as a failed task within the Proxmox UI. This appears to be harmless and the desired configuration changes do get applied.
  • proxmox_vm_qemu does not (yet) validate vm names, be sure to only use alphanumeric and dashes otherwise you may get an opaque 400 Parameter Verification failed (indicating a bad value was sent to proxmox).
  • When using the proxmox_lxc resource, the provider will crash unless rootfs is defined.
