Hi all,

Before I shut down my pve host, do I need to do anything before like obviously shut down my vms but what about like VMware to put it in maintanence mode?

You don't need to shutdown VMs. PVE will do that (in reverse start order) before trying to shutdown itself. If that is single node and not a cluster, you don't need to do anything.
Wow, so I don't even need to shut down individual VMS before I shut down pve, pve does that for me
