Proxmox Host

By using the Proxmox VE API, OPMONis is controlling a Proxmox VE node or a Proxmox VM.


  • a paid license.
  • open firewall ports for the Proxmox VE API


TitleThe title is the systems logic name and will only be used within OPMONis. The title is arbitrary.
Proxmox Host
(DNS) / IP
The DNS name or the IP address of the Proxmox host. OPMONis will use this value to communicate by network with the system.
MAC AddressThe MAC address can be set automatically by clicking on the search button in the MAC address line. This is only possible if the system is in the same subnet as OPMONis, else it must be inserted manually. OPMONis needs this value to trigger the boot process via “Wake on Lan”.
Web Api PortThe TCP Port used to connect to the Proxmox VE API. Default is 8006.
LoginThe login name will be used to login to the Proxmox host via network. For this to be possible the chosen user must have set the required authorizations (admin rights).
PasswordThe password is needed to log into the system by network. It will be encrypted by OPMONis (details about the encrypting process you can find in the chapter “Technique”).
Node NameThe name of the Proxmox Node.
Await ExecutionIf this checkbox is selected, OPMONis will monitor the system via Ping until the active action is finished. Only then OPMONis will continue with the next action. If this option is not selected, OPMONis will continue with the next device immediately. You can find details about this in the chapter “Technique”.
Execution Timeout (seconds)This value indicates the waiting time, how long OPMONis gives the system time to shut down properly. If the shutdown is not completed after this time, an error is written into the history and the shutdown is continued with the next system.
