Import the dump in Proxmox

Login to your Proxmox host and become root:

sudo su

Go inside the directory where the proxmox dump file resides and import it by choosing your Proxmox ID and the STORAGE_NAME

Then, please proceed with the following:

1) Start your Domotz virtual machine and which is configured already to get an ip address from a DHCP server

2) Login ( user: domotz password: domotz) to get its ipaddress (or to set is you need to change it).

3) Open a browser to http://$yourdomotzvmipaddress:3000
