Cannot shutdown Windows or Linux guests...

I'm having a terrible time with Proxmox not seemingly being able to shut down Windows (10 and Server 2012 & R2) and Linux (CentOS 6.10) guests. I'm not even sure where to start in terms of isolating where the problem might be. What should I do to ascertain what the problem here is?
Yes, but how can I test this as a sanity check? (I do see, by the way `qemu-ga` running on Windows Server 2012 R2.)
Check on the wiki. There's an agent pong command to check it's working. If you can't have the agent working just disable the agent option so proxmox send a simple acpi signal.
