No VNC Console to the nodes and VMs after recent update


Jul 24, 2021
i recently updated my PVE 8 to the latest. Because there was a new kernel in i also rebooted the nodes afterwards. Now i am unable to access neither the node console nor the vm console with the gui console command.
failed waiting for client: timed out
TASK ERROR: command '/usr/bin/termproxy 5900 --path /nodes/pve2 --perm Sys.Console -- /usr/bin/ssh -e none -t -- /bin/login -f root' failed: exit code 1
All other functions are working as usual (so far i checked). Do i have to configure something more to reenable the gui console.
