Dear all,

I have been playing with this new Proxmox 5.3 server for more than a
week before I migrate all VMs from a 5.1 server and I have been able to
log in the GUI at 8006 port with no issue. Suddenly this morning after
being able to log in with no issue I keep on getting Connection error
401: permission denied - invalid PVE ticket.

If I check the logs I see the auth works:

Dec 22 11:53:52 node1 pvedaemon[10764]: <root@pam> successful auth for
user 'root@pam'

I made sure that system time is right too. I am not using ntp (as I am
not doing with the legacy server)

google search is not helping either.

I have tried to recreate the certs with pvecm updatecerts -f

Any suggestions?
 
Try clearing your browser cache/using a different browser
 
i have the same problem. cleared cache, cookies, tried new browser. i installed virtualizor by ssh (they advertise that it works with proxmox), later removed virtualizor and now can't login by linux pam. any idea how to fix that?

the error is
Connection error 401: permission denied - invalid PVE ticket
AFTER login is accepted.

maybe you just need to restart/update some services or the host? you can try to ssh inside, update everything (`apt update` and then `apt full-upgrade`, also upgrade all other nodes if you're in a cluster), and then reboot everything.
can you post your syslog output while trying to log in? also the outputs of `systemctl status pveproxy` and same for `pvedaemon`.
