Proxmox VE 8 - Unable to edit a VM firewall rule if "source" is a IP address.

with pve 8.0.3 I am able to create a new firewall rule which uses a IP address as source via the web interface but I am unable to change such a rule.
I can only delete and re-create it with changed values.

The error message is:

Parameter verification failed. (400)
source: invalid ipset name '+undefined/undefined'

Which is as far as correct as there is no ipset given.;)

The simplest example is to create such a rule (Direction: in, Action: ACCEPT, source: IP address, Enabled: checked) as enabled an then trying to disable it.

It looks like the parameter verification lost the check for IP adresses somehow form VE 7 to VE 8.

The cluster is updated form VE 6 to 7 and now to 8, if that is of any interest.

Regards, Ralf
