After setting up my Proxmox servers, there are a few things I do before I use them for their intended purpose. This ranges from updates, to storage, to networking and VLANS, to uploading ISOs, to clustering, to NIC teaming with LACP, and more. Join me as we pick up where the rest of the proxmox tutorials stop, and that's everything you need to do to make these production ready (and maybe a bonus item too)
