repeated auth request

I had a 2 node proxmox cluster for a few months that seemed to work with no issues. I added a 3rd node yesterday and now I get a repeated authentication request when attempting to connect to the interface. It will connect for a few seconds and then if I click around it will repeat the auth request. I'm just using the Linux PAM standard auth... proxmox ve 5.3-5 and attempted with google chrome, firefox and Microsoft edge. Obviously can't get much done with it repeatedly asking for login creds...
MAY have determined the cause... something in the back of my mind was telling me to check the ntp…. time was off a little bit. My server that acts as an ntp was not reachable... 1 server (the new node) was off by 4 hours or so... I fixed that... so far... stable.... haven't had the repeated auth request. Does this make sense to folks?
