Emulate NVME drive in Proxmox

Proxmox does not yet support adding NVME drives using the web interface. It has to be added using a custom args for QEMU.

To do so, open the VM config file in a text editor vi /etc/pve/qemu-server/100.conf

args: -drive file=/dev/zvol/rpool/data/vm-100-disk-1,if=none,id=nvme1 -device nvme,drive=nvme1,serial=nvme1 

file is the location of the image in the hard drive. Since I’m using ZFS, it is in /dev/zvol/rpool/data/vm-100-disk-1.

I created this image using the Web UI but it is unattached. It is created in a real NVME disk.

device is how it will show-up in the guest
