Hey guys,

I have been looking for a way to clone a VM from one node to another with a proxmoxer library in Python, I have managed to set a connection to promox cluster. However, I have not found any way so far to clone the VMs, here is the code I have so far:

def connect_proxmox(dc):proxmox = ProxmoxAPI("censoredhost", user=PROXMOX_USER, password=PROXMOX_PASSWORD)
return proxmox

proxmox_hz = connect_proxmox('censored')

Official proxmoxer documentation does not provide many documentations on it

Any help or tips are appreciated
