My node list is empty when I want to create / migrate a VM or container.
This is only a GUI issue, CLI works fine.

The cluster is healthy too. Nothing wierd in logs.
I also tried to restart the concerned services without improvement...
systemctl restart pvestatd
systemctl restart pvedaemon
systemctl restart pveproxy
Any idea on a how to fix ?
Thanks a lot

Some useful data...

I have an error, but no clue idea how to fix...
Dedibox is one of my node name (currently down)

root@px5:~# pvesh get /nodes
unable to read '/etc/pve/nodes/dedibox/pve-ssl.pem' - No such file or directory
I deleted the involved node dedibox, but the same error appear on one of my active datastore :
root@px5:/etc/pve/nodes# pvesh get /nodes
unable to read '/etc/pve/nodes/datastore2/pve-ssl.pem' - No such file or directory
I still have no clue idea how to proceed.

Fixed with regenerating the key on the involved (datastore2) node.
pvecm updatecerts -f
Thank you for the support :)
