Hi there,

I am new to promox, I am trying to get my machine to boot up through Console (Windows 2016 Standard ISO) but it keeps giving me "Failed to run vncproxy." and the console states, "Failed to connect to server"

These are the machine's details:

agent: 1
bootdisk: scsi1
cores: 3
ide0: local:iso/Windows_Server_2016_Datacenter_EVAL_en-us_14393_refresh.ISO,media=cdrom,size=6808810K

sockets: 1
vga: virtio
vmgenid: d0abdf92-16e0-4a47-a816-6f322d8aadc4

The System Configuration:

I was wondering what exactly could I be doing wrong here?
