I am curious is there any way to check if a virtual machine (KVM) is running on a Proxmox node?

I have found multiple commands along the line of

Code:
sudo lshw -class system
&
Code:
sudo dmesg | grep -i virtual
but these just return a generic QEMU message.

The only way I can think of is by running
Code:
dhclient -d -nw eth0
which would return the DHCP server IP and then if the firewall lets you connect through https://DHCPSERVERIP:8006

detecting proxmox isn't possible since it simply uses kvm

systemd-detect-virt will tell you the hypervisor/container engine
