we have Proxmox environment - 4.4.67-1-pve #1 SMP PVE 4.4.67-92 and couple of Debiam LXC containers.
Containers are working well but nothing from Proxmox services. I am not able backup, migrate...
Could you help me, I scared restart system because in containers are very important applications for us.

You should be a bit more specific about your problem, but I would start with the following checks:

* are you seeing all nodes of your cluster with the command
pvecm nodes
* is the storage of your containers OK ?
pvesm status
Yes, these commands works, but pct does not respond:

root@sumo:~# pvesm status

Try the following command sequence and post their output:

systemctl stop pveproxy
systemctl start pveproxy
ps faxl | grep pveproxy

executed on your "sumo" node
