Final Notes

Future homelab now depends on obtaining another Lenovo M73, maxing out it’s spec’s, installing Proxmox, and clustering it with the Master Proxmox Node.
I can then install Metasploit and a couple other vulnerable VMs on it.
End goal is still to have a small farm of vulnerable VMs to poke on.
