Proxmox integration setup problems

I have followed the installation, but missed out on creating a proxmox integration object on the homarr dashboard initially. After badding it, I am now getting the following error in my log. 'proxmox': Error accessing service API: 'https://192.168.68.16:8006/api2/json/cluster/resources'. The following error was returned: AxiosError: Request failed with status code 401
Solution:
you should have 2 permission entries

Can I install Homarr on a Raspberry Pi?

Maybe it is a firewall problem? OS is Ubuntu 24 plus dock starter for homarr. Just to clarify: Homarr is running as a container on Ubuntu and Ubuntu is a vm on my proxmox server. Sadly, plenty of opportunities for a connection not to through.

401 is "unauthorized", so either you didn't do the api key properly, or it's getting blocked by a reverse proxy Firewall would straight up block it, no error code. Using https and a local IP seems wrong though, are you sure it's not http?
CrankyPunisher
CrankyPunisherβ€’3w ago
I have tried http as well. Same result. But, yes, I am suspicious that it doesn't like my local IP setup. I also re-applied my api key once again using "api@pam!homarr=<my api>" I have also tried the container ip, but this gives the econnrefused error. Hmm, I don't see any messages in the proxmox system log...

Please post your full log as requested by @Cakey Bot @CrankyPunisher what is the URL you entered? Are you using a proxy? Are you using VLANs?
CrankyPunisher
CrankyPunisherβ€’3w ago
full log as in system log of the underlying vm? no proxy. no VLAN. main intention to post in general was to get another user to share their settings.
Manicraft1001
Manicraft1001β€’3w ago
The full log of Homarr please. There may be some other useful information in it What's your URL?
CrankyPunisher
CrankyPunisherβ€’3w ago
I am rebooting the box to get you a shorter log. Less junk after a reboot... External URL is https://pve1.<my domain>.:8006 I resolves locally via DNS and I can access proxmox with it
Manicraft1001
Manicraft1001β€’3w ago
Can the VM & Homarr resolve this too?
CrankyPunisher
CrankyPunisherβ€’3w ago
The vm can. Checking on homarr container now Hmm, there is no ping in the container. I need to figure out how to do that...
Manicraft1001
Manicraft1001β€’3w ago
Run apt-get install -y iputils-ping
CrankyPunisher
CrankyPunisherβ€’3w ago
yep It is working. homarr can ping the external url Should I check the internal ip?
Manicraft1001
Manicraft1001β€’3w ago
Yes please
CrankyPunisher
CrankyPunisherβ€’3w ago
That works as well.
Manicraft1001
Manicraft1001β€’3w ago
Ok. So it is not a networking issue. The token is correct?
CrankyPunisher
CrankyPunisherβ€’3w ago
Well, it could still be http vs https, but neither one is working... Yes, I eve nreapplied it again. I guess I can generate a new one if we are running out of ideas. But wouldn't there be a different error message if the token is wrong?
Manicraft1001
Manicraft1001β€’3w ago
This is a common error message for invalid tokens

CrankyPunisherβ€’3w ago
I am struggling to get the log. I am using docker container logs homarr > /data/log.txt to create it It shows me all the relevant output on screen, but the file has different content... OK. I have generated a new api key. no change. I don't understand why it shows me the following error on screen, but not in the generated log file. ERROR 'proxmox': Error accessing service API: 'https://192.168.68.16:8006/api2/json/cluster/resources'. The following error was returned: AxiosError: Request failed with status code 401

I am not sure if it matters, but I am seeing a lot of communication issues in my homarr log ERROR failed to communicate with media server 'plex' (2ae1d0c3-7dc8-4e1d-8ea1-afc1778fb6c7): TypeError: fetch failed ERROR failed to communicate with media server 'jellyfin' (151c1c28-6343-4b94-942e-74bf7b7e11ae): AxiosError: Request failed with status code 401 ERROR Failed to request data from Overseerr: TypeError: Cannot read properties of undefined (reading 'map') ERROR failed to communicate with media server 'plex' (2ae1d0c3-7dc8-4e1d-8ea1-afc1778fb6c7): TypeError: fetch failed

So they are timing out or getting 401 as a response There is definetly something messing with your network requests
CrankyPunisher
CrankyPunisherβ€’3w ago
Yet, all the shown apps are working just fine (directly and with homarr widgets)

But I have not used Promox so I cannot help you in that regard
CrankyPunisher
CrankyPunisherβ€’3w ago
I understand. I am concerned that there is no failed request in the proxmox log... I mean it normally logs pretty much everything... But I will work on the github request this evening. Do I just open an issue on github ajnart / homarr and then tag dslatt? It is just a commit to the existing project, right? I got the github issue opened, but how do I tag dslatt to it?

Thank you for applying some corrections/comments to my issue! πŸ™‚ Shall I leave this open and copy any future solutions? One other thing I noticed is that the widget is just blank. Other widgets normally give some kind of error message, but then this is just the first release. In any case, it is an exciting new feature and I hope I get to use it soon.

@CrankyPunisher Sorry for asking - but my friend hat this same issue this morning. Do you get any information from proxmox in homarr (list of lxc, vms etc.)? My friend was missing a role mapping for the group in proxmox (Step 6 in the documentation)
CrankyPunisher
CrankyPunisherβ€’3w ago
@Danny Do you mean a Group Permission? Thank you for responding!

Kind of. It doesn't pull much beyond the node...
Danny
Dannyβ€’3w ago
Mh, maybe wait some minutes or reload site. If i remeber correctly, i also needed to wait a minute or so till the widget showed informations
CrankyPunisher
CrankyPunisherβ€’3w ago
yeah. I am hoping for that!
Danny
Dannyβ€’3w ago
If not we can check the settings in proxmox. Maybe redo the whole configuration and create a new api key
CrankyPunisher
CrankyPunisherβ€’3w ago
I have already checked the log. proxmox entries are gone. No new errors... That would be the 4th api key then... I think I will first wait on a response for the github ticket. I am still concerned that there are no messages in the proxmox log. I mean it normally sdeems to log pretty much everything. Hard to believe that api calls aren't logged. Especially, if they fail...

I cant even see logs in proxmox aswell for api calls..
CrankyPunisher
CrankyPunisherβ€’3w ago
Hmm. Maybe I am checking the wrong area? I am just looking into ui system log. Oh, wait. Are you saying you can or cannot? I gotta go for now. Work....
Danny
Dannyβ€’3w ago
In the overall UI system logs i dont see logs for api calls. I just found two logs for pve audit (should be equal to the PVE.Auditrole) but nothing more.. - and not related to homarr or anything in that redirection
dylwing23
dylwing23β€’3w ago
just caught up to this. @CrankyPunisher could you run 'pvesh get /cluster/resources' in your proxmox shell? its basically the cli version of the api path i'm using to access proxmox i'm curious what that will have for you. it seems like the data proxmox is sending out is very limited https://pve.proxmox.com/pve-docs/api-viewer/#/cluster/resources
CrankyPunisher
CrankyPunisherβ€’3w ago
@dylwing23 I am currently away from my installation, but will run this later on today and report back. Thank you for getting back to me!
dylwing23
dylwing23β€’3w ago
no problem. whenever you get a chance. ty! also, can you run "curl -k -H "Authorization: PVEAPIToken=<API Token you created>" https://<your proxmox IP>:8006/api2/json/cluster/resources" from somewhere (homarrs docker instance would be ideal, but anywhere with curl works) just wanted to check the api directly incase it doesnt matched up with the cli results for you
CrankyPunisher
CrankyPunisherβ€’3w ago
@dylwing23 I have a question. In your curl command above, is <API Token you created>" just the short numeric portion of the homarr token or the full string including "api@pam!homarr=" @dylwing23 I have tried the numeric portion in the docker container itself. It ran and produced no output. @dylwing23 Then I ran it from the docker VM itself. Same result.
dylwing23
dylwing23β€’3w ago
@CrankyPunisher you use the whole string 'api@pam!homarr=1234...'
CrankyPunisher
CrankyPunisherβ€’3w ago
@dylwing23 That gives "-bash: !homarr=7a0ed54a: event not found" when running it on the VM and no message when running it in the homarr container. I have used api@pam!homarr=<api token>. @dylwing23 Correction. II initially had api1 and after correcting it, I am now getting the following output: {"data":[{"status":"online","type":"node","id":"node/pve1","level":"","node":"pve1","cgroup-mode":2}]} @dylwing23 I believe that is matching my widget output...
dylwing23
dylwing23β€’3w ago
yeah. that seems to match. did you try to other command in the proxmox shell? @CrankyPunisher pvesh get /cluster/resources for some reason proxmox isnt returning all the data I would expect
dylwing23
dylwing23β€’3w ago
did you add both the group permission & api token permission? i just noticed that if I remove the api token permission then Im getting a similar result
