How to Add Windows Templates to Virtualizor


Virtualizor is a powerful virtualization control panel that allows you to create and manage virtual machines (VMs) on your server. While it provides a range of pre-configured templates for different operating systems, including Linux distributions, you may also want to add Windows templates to your Virtualizor KVM setup. This article will guide you through the process of downloading and adding Windows templates to Virtualizor KVM

Before we begin, please make sure you have SSH access to your server. Let's get started with the step-by-step instructions:

Step 2: Navigate to the Virtualizor KVM Directory

Once you have successfully logged in, navigate to the Virtualizor KVM directory by entering the following command:

cd /var/virtualizor/kvm

Additional Windows Templates:

In addition to the Windows Server 2019 template, Virtualizor provides several other Windows templates that you can download and add to your Virtualizor KVM setup. Here is a list of available templates along with their respective download URLs:

 

It's recommended to check the Virtualizor website or official documentation for the most up-to-date information on the availability of these specific templates.

Step 6: Add the Templates in the Virtualizor Panel

To add any of the additional Windows templates to the Virtualizor panel, follow the same steps as mentioned in Step 5. Simply replace the template details, such as the filename and template URLs, with the appropriate values for each Windows template.

By following these steps, you can download and add Windows templates of your choice to Virtualizor KVM. Once added, you can easily create and deploy Windows-based virtual machines alongside your Linux VMs using Virtualizor's user-friendly interface.

Please note that when working with Windows templates, ensure that you have the necessary licensing and comply with the terms of use for each Windows version you deploy.

Enjoy the flexibility and power of Virtualizor KVM with added Windows templates to cater to a wider range of virtualization needs.
