Once you complete the steps, the ISO image will upload to the server. This process can take some time, depending on the network environment.


Can you upload multiple ISO files at once?

Yes, but not through the Proxmox interface. If you want to upload various images at once, you will need to connect to the server using an FTP client like Filezilla and then upload the files to the “isos” folder.
