Just have a quick question regarding creating VMs. I am a little confused of how templates work, and I am wondering if people use them? From my understanding, if I want to install lets say Ubuntu server 22.04, that I would just use the 20.04 template and select my 22.04 ISO? Or is it best to use ‘Other install media’. If templates are the case, what template should I use for lets say OPNsense - or I assume I just use other install media option for that.
Templates are just there to help with the quick setup of the parameters you want to use for your VM. If the distro isn’t in the list then use “other media” and configure accordingly.
There is not a BSD template for pfsense/OPNsense so you can just use other media.
