Centos 9 LXC template installed, but can't ssh into it

I am trying out Centos 9 LXC template that was downloaded from the templates in Proxmox 8 GUI
After provisioning the template I can login to the lxc through proxmomx NoVnc, I want to be able to login via SSH, though I cant find that sshd is installed, and when trying yum install sshd I get the error: Unable to find a match: sshd

Searching about Centos 9 and most say that sshd is installed by default. It would be highly appreciated if someone have any input about this.

There is no such package as "sshd". There is "openssh-server" and "openssh-clients"
But it could be already installed and just needs to be enabled.
