Supermicro Server rebooting after PVE 8.0-2 clean install

Installed PVE on my SYS-5029C-T. I had installed the previous version without issue but decided to try Harvester HCI. After evaluation, I preferred proxmox so I downloaded the current version and installed. The only difference was I chose zfs (RAID1) instead of ext4. I have (2) 1TB SSDs. When it rebooted after install, I was unable to get to webui. After some troubleshooting, I found in /etc/network/interfaces that lo and vmbr0 were the only active interfaces with vmbr0 as a static address. I changed it to the following and was able to access the webui:

auto lo
iface lo inet loopback

auto eno1
iface eno1 inet dhcp

auto eno2
iface eno2 inet dhcp

auto vmbr0
iface vmbr0 inet dhcp

I like to manage static addresses at the DHCP server. Now the server crashes and reboots repeatedly. If I ssh in, it crashes as soon as I accepted the fingerprint. If I do nothing, it crashes and reboots. I've loaded optimal defaults in BIOS. I've attempted to look through log files but it won't stay up long enough. Very frustrating and hardly production ready. Please advise.
