Superna Eyeglass Installation Procedure


Create a new VM in Proxmox, taking note of VM ID, you can give it a name for your ease.




OS: Don’t Use any any media, OS : Linux 4.x/3.x Kernel


Hard Disk: Change ‘Bus/Device’ to SATA, Everything else can be left as defaults, this HD will be removed in a later step.



CPU: 2 Sockets, 2 Cores. Default (kvm64) type was tested


Memory: 16384MB Ram (16G)


Network: Add an Ethernet adapter (VirtIO Paravirtualized was tested), and a VLAN tag if required.


Click on the newly created VM, click Hardware, and then select Hard Disk (scsi0), then click Detach and Yes when asked to confirm.


The Hard Disk will drop into an Unused Disk state.  Select this Unused Disk and select Remove



Option 1: OVF/VMDK only

Download the VMDK from repo.  IF OVA, extract the vmdk from the OVA using an archive program. (7zip, winzip winrar all work).

Transfer the VMDK to Proxmox VE images folder (/var/lib/vz/images)


scp Superna_Eyeglass.2.5.7-20285-lp15.1.x86_64-disk1-pve.vmdk root@proxmoxip:/var/lib/vz/images


SSH over to the Proxmox HV to perform the following steps.

Convert the image to qcow2:

qemu-img convert -f vmdk Superna_Eyeglass.2.5.7-20285-lp15.1.x86_64-disk1.vmdk

 -O qcow2 Superna_Eyeglass.2.5.7-20285-lp15.1.x86_64.qcow2


You can now copy (or move) this qcow to the VMID subfolder from above.


At this point, Proxmox should populate the WebUI with the new drive so it can be simply attached.  If it doesn’t, manually add the drive by editing the VM config file, stored by default at /etc/pve/qemu-server and add the following line to the end of the config file:

unused0: local:<id>/<filename>


Where <ID> is the VMID noted above and <filename> is the name of qcow2 disk to be attached to the VM. E.g.

unused0: local:102/Superna_Eyeglass.2.5.3-18251.x86_64-disk1-pve.qcow2


Return to the Proxmox WebUI where you will find the eyeglass boot disk, designated as ‘unused’.

Double click on the unused disk to Attach it to the VM:

Bus/Device: SATA 0

Click Add.


The configuration should look similar to this:


Start the VM, Connect to Console; you can login with user ecaadmin and default password 3y3gl4ss and proceed with normal post install configuration.
