it has been a while, that im re-configuring 76pveproxy every time because the file content has been removing without any reason.
Any one had the same issue ????

, that im re-configuring 76pveproxy every time because the file content has been removing without any reason.
what do you mean with 76pveproxy?
I am seeing this as well.
When I imaged each server in my devlab I configured the company proxy in /etc/apt/apt.conf.d/76pveproxy
and on each VM host that file has been reset after joining the cluster.

After noticing this I went into the UI to set it here

After setting it there I expected this to write the setting out to the cluster such that it would not get overwritten like it did when manually configured in the file mentioned previously.
This does not appear to be the case.
That proxy file has not gotten the new config and remains where it was reset to this
root@vm4:~# cat /etc/apt/apt.conf.d/76pveproxy
// no proxy configured

Is there a separate button or function to write out settings to the cluster that I am missing?
If I now configure it again manually will this happen again, or only on joining the cluster?

Thanks in advance!
Update: I can confirm that this setting does get wiped out immediately when I click 'Refresh' from the upgrades screen in the UI.
I have to go back and reset the file on each host and then do an apt update; apt upgrade
Is there somewhere else this can be set to avoid this issue?

Just kidding:oops:
after checking the cluster options again on a whim and it appears that setting was missing. I must have missed resetting that when I started my cluster over from scratch for a separate issue. Update refresh appears to work fine now and uses the proxy even though the 76pveproxy file gets wiped out and appears to no longer be in use. Will update if I see this come back again at all.
