Can't connect at all to Proxmox after accidentally disconnecting USB Coral

I have Proxmox installed on an Intel NUC (Ethernet connected) along with Home Assistant in a VM. I accidentally pulled the USB connected Coral accelerator so I plugged it back in but now I can't connect. I tried to SSH in but it's refused. I powered the NUC off and back on but nothing. I rebooted the router but it didn't help. I see the NUC in my router so I guess it's still in my home network.

I'm really at a loss as to what to do next. Any suggestions really appreciated.
 
Hi thusband,
Any suggestions
For the "any" part, I'd start with the obvious: tell people what "the USB conected Coral accelerator" is, in case it has anything to do with the issue you're having (I had no idea); secondly: pick up the NUC and connect it to keyboard + monitor and check whether the machine is actually booting (yeah, I also hate it when I have to get out of my chair to troubleshoot an item :p )
 
I just checked again and now I don't see the NUC in my router network. Bad connection? Bad Cable??

Sorry. The Coral accelerator aids the CPU in processing/analyzing video streams. I works with the Frigate security camera application and Home Assistant to identify people, cars, dogs, cats, etc. Good suggestion about the monitor. I honestly didn't think about doing that but will tomorrow. I have a new Ethernet cable coming so will test that out too. I guess if it boots up with the monitor it might be the cable. Not sure why the cable would die at that particular point though.

Thanks for the help.
 
Home Assistant to identify people, cars, dogs, cats,
Thanks for elaborating, sounds like fun! Does it actually work?

Would be peculiar indeed. Maybe the accelerator enables an USB network interface, over which an internal service is called; in that case perhaps removing the device renamed other interfaces, throwing a wrench in the networks?

Let's see tomorrow! :)
