Hi,

Did you run pmxcfs manually in a local mode?

ps aux | grep pmxcfs

if yes stop it and restart the pve-cluster service with:

systemctl restart pve-cluster

if that fails ensure pmxcfs is stopped then remove the lockfile with:
rm /var/lib/pve-cluster/.pmxcfs.lockfile

and retry.

cheers,
Thomas
