    Hi all, I recently got a Hetzner server installed with proxmox. Unfortunately straight away from the clean install I keep getting disconnected from the shell/console each few seconds.
    When I go to the cluster log I see pvedaemon there every couple of seconds. It starts a task to auth, then says successful auth for root and then it ends the task. The cycle repeats constantly.

    It's also important to note that when i SSH into the machine I have absolutely no issues.

    the only times i saw that (and it was fixed), it was caused by the network or browser

    Alright so I've been going through a lot of attempts to try and fix this. Still nothing.
    I have tried different browsers (my chrome works for one of my clusters just fine) and also incognito mode.
    With regards to the network, I set a ping command to run for my duration of trying and there's 0% packet loss (not sure if this means anything but it was a way I thought I can check network)
    1. My hostname was "Proxmox", so my node was named Proxmox. I assumed that may be a problem so I did a fresh install with a different name, Proxmox1 for example and it seemed to work. Then after first CT creation it started happening again.
    2. Now I have a new fresh install, similar hostname but I also disabled IPV6, still nothing.

    From the logs, what seems to be the line that's related to this may be:
    "problem with client xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx; ssl3_read_bytes: tlsv1 alert unknown ca"
    After looking around in the forum I tried to update my certs with "pvecm updatecerts --force" and still, I'm having the same issue.
    Any ideas? Would really appreciate some help

    do you have client certificates installed in your browser?

    If you mean the files in /etc/pve and /etc/pve/nodes/... then yes, I do
    Anything else I can check for?

    no - I meant 'client certificates', which your browser uses to authenticate with certain websites/webapps - these are installed in your browser not on your PVE-node
