Hi everyone,
I'm trying to recover the machine configurations from a disk by connecting it via a virtual usb adapter but the configuration file is in /etc/pve/qemu-server/<VMID>
it's not found,
in fact the entire /etc/pve directory is empty. Am I doing the procedure wrong? Thank you

/etc/pve is not a real filesystem, it's a view on a database: https://pve.proxmox.com/pve-docs/pve-admin-guide.html#chapter_pmxcfs. It is only present when the Proxmox service are started successfully.
