Morning all, I upgraded my Proxmox server yesterday from 5.4 to 6.3-4 and now my windows servers (W2012R2) that were using the e1000 NIC are now failing to ping the network. Any suggestions to resolving this issue? Any assistance with this matter would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.

Uninstalled the NIC in Windows, let it reinstall and all seems well with the world again. Either that or it could have just been that for some reason the NIC in windows flipped from Static to DHCP - really kind of odd - for one server I did an uninstall/reinstall - for the other (my ADDC) I just had to set the IP Address back to static and give it the correct address. its working again anyway - please disregard this post.

The same issue happened with VirtIO Nic too. Old network adapter got removed and a new one replaced it. Had to set static ips again.
