Can't find my (headless) Proxmox install on the network.

Oct 1, 2023
Hello friends,

This morning I upgraded my Proxmox server from 7.15 to 8.0.

After I rebooted it, after a few minutes my VM's all dutifully came back up, and seem to be running fine - but my Proxmox web interface isn't found, and I can neither ping or ssh to it's old static IP.

As the VM's are running, and I can SSH into them - and then access the internet from them - everything appears to be running well.

If I can - I'd like to avoid having to physically access the machine, move a screen down there, etc - does anyone have any tips on how to locate the machine on my lan, if it has changed MAC addresses/ip addresses as part of the upgrade?

Thanks in advance,
