Can't start container


Dec 24, 2018
So this is my problem :
Since my proxmox server restarting (containers was started), the containers can't start.
Proxmox GUI : TASK ERROR: command 'systemctl start pve-container@100' failed: exit code 1

Promox shell journalctl -xe :
Dec 24 17:45:25 pve pvedaemon[14737]: command 'systemctl start pve-container@100' failed: exit code 1
Dec 24 17:45:25 pve pvedaemon[2278]: <root@pam> end task UPID: pve:00003991:0000A040:5C210D24:vzstart:100:root@pam: co

Can i restore the container ? Or access to it storage when offline ?

PS : sorry for my english, i'm french.
Have you tried to start the container via gui or shell? You could try to reset-failed with systemctl, it might be help.

Otherwise please post more information and log files. From the information you send us here, I can not see whats problem you have.
