Disabling a Proxmox subscription
A fresh installation of the Proxmox VE without subscriptions will display a message upon login to Proxmox GUI, as shown in the following screenshot:
This is because an enterprise repository is enabled by default. If you decide not to get any Proxmox subscriptions and continue using the fully Free version, you will have to disable the enterprise repository.
Login to the Proxmox node through a console or SSH. An enterprise repository can only be disabled through CLI.
How to do it…
The enterprise repository is listed in /etc/apt/sources.list.d/pve-enterprise.list. We have to comment out the line to disable the repository:
$ nano /etc/apt/sources.list.d/pve-enterprise.list
#deb https://enterprise.proxmox.com/debian wheezy pve-enterprise
Add the Proxmox No-Subscription repository as follows:
$ nano /etc/apt/sources.list
deb http://download.proxmox.com/debian wheezy pve-no-subscription
