    I am facing this issue in multiple nodes.

    Node shows grey in cluster, but ssh works and *the proxy service it is not active*

    When I start proxy i get the message

    "start failed - can't aquire lock '/var/run/pveproxy/pveproxy.pid.lock' - Resource temporarily unavailable"

    Only solution is to restart node.

    Node details: pve-manager/5.1-52/ba597a64 (running kernel: 4.15.15-1-pve)

    Any suggestions to fix this issue?

    Left over lock? Can you just try to remove it once 'rm /var/run/pveproxy/pveproxy.pid.lock' and the do
    systemctl start pveproxy
    Is this problem recurring again even after a restart?
