Hy guys,

i made a upgrade from the latest version to version 8, everthing as told in the official documentation, and now i can´t access my webinterface. Sadly it´s a server in the cloud :-D .

When i´m doing a "systemctl status pveproxy" i´m getting this:

1687929600847.png

I´ve not been using a self signed certificate, so thats probably the reason for this message, but how do i get rid of it?

Thanks in advance!

Greets Georg

PS: i made everything the official documentation says, but i still get this error:

Jun 28 05:01:31 pve-proxmox pveproxy[2697]: /etc/pve/local/pve-ssl.key: failed to load local private key (key

key file exists and was generated correctly...

as the wiki-page points out on top - this is quite old information - and the reference documentation would be the right place to look
`pvecm updatecerts -force`
should get your system in a consistent state (make sure to backup all certificates if you need them as they will be replaced)

I hope this helps!

try restarting pve-cluster.service - and check the journal while doing so - afterwards try restarting pveproxy

if the service pve-cluster in not running,
double check that you don't have in /etc/hosts :"127.0.1.1 <yourhostname>" ,
if yes, remove the file and restart pve-cluster
cluster? i´m running a single machine, thats strange.

See the following thread on the pve-devel mailinglist (and the forum-threads linked there), started by @spirit for an explanation:
https://lists.proxmox.com/pipermail/pve-devel/2023-June/057938.html

pve-cluster service runs on all PVE nodes (behind this service is the cluster-filesystem /etc/pve):

That could be the reason! I´m really using OVH and therefore their image. I will dive into this topic tomorrow.

Thank you for your help!

OK i´m now at that point where i would really reinstall proxmox and start over again. I have uninstalled cloud-init package, i have configured the hosts file correctly but the cluster service is still not starting. I really have to say i don´t have the time to deal with such errors.

As stupid as i am, i have no backups from my VM´s. I´m just downloading the two virtual disks that have relevance over SSH/SFTP. On the Proxmox side i haven´t configured that much so it´s not a big deal.

Thanks for your help guys! I already love the community forums from proxmox :-D !
