Issue IP Hassos on Proxmox - Guest Agent not running

Suddenly after a reboot of Home Assistant proxmox does not assign an ip address to the VM, I tried to reboot both HA and the PC that hosts Home Assistant, but nothing, I tried to create a new VM re-install HA and the new machine has its own IP what can I do? Improvvisamente dopo un riavvio di Home Assistant proxmox non assegna un indirizzo ip alla VM, ho provato a riavviare sia HA che il PC che ospita Home Assistant, ma nulla, ho provato a creare una nuova VM re reinstallare HA e la nuova macchina ha un suo IP cosa posso fare? allego uno screenshot delle due VM nella prima invece dell’IP mi compare Guest Agent not running

check your router… your server IP might have conflict

It is not a home assistant error.

Guest agent not running… seems that the issue is there… by default this is not installed. Check the proxmox website on how to install it. Not a HA issue. The installation might or might not have an IP assigned right now… who knows :stuck_out_tongue:

The best way to check if an IP was assigned is by using the console and for example executing: ip a

Nothing here is a useful answer. I’m following the Installing Home Assistant OS using Proxmox 7 and am stuck in the same place. I looked up install of qemu-guest-agent for nothing:

root@pve:~# apt-get install qemu-guest-agent
Reading package lists... Done
Building dependency tree... Done
Reading state information... Done
qemu-guest-agent is already the newest version (1:5.2+dfsg-11+deb11u2).
0 upgraded, 0 newly installed, 0 to remove and 10 not upgraded.

So seems to be an HA issue to me.

Did you enable it for the VM you run HAOS in?

Enable Guest Agent Communication

Communication from Proxmox VE with the guest agent can be enabled in the VM’s Options panel. A fresh start of the VM is necessary for the changes to take effect.

In the Options tab? Yes.
I went back and ran

bash -c "$(wget -qLO -"

to build a second VM and this one worked. The script I did that I thought worked was
from Error when installing `Unable to handle file extension 'zip'.` · Issue #113 · whiskerz007/proxmox_hassos_install · GitHub
That got the VM done but still no guest agent.

oh, but it’s a local address but I gave it a VLAN value. Next one worked.

This guide (HowTo install Home Assistant (HA) OS in Proxmox VE (PVE) 7.1) might help learning how to flawlessly install HAOS in Proxmox VE. Works for any version of HAOS and you are in complete control of the process.

The whiskerz007 script downloads the wrong file. (haos_generic-aarch64-8.0.rc3.vmdk)

I had my HA VM running on proxmox for months but now dispite the VM is running I have the issue “Guest Agent not running” and HA doesn’t connect to the fixed IP address with the router it used to before.

How did you resolve the issue?

It might be useful to show Hardware and Options for starters. Also Console to see what HA is reporting.

Here are the Haedware, Options and Shell screenshots:

Does that help identifying, why it lost the IP (Guest Agent?) and what I need to do to get it re-connected and back running?

Thanks for your support

You seem to have an issue with the Proxmox UEFI. Either changed settings in PVE UEFI or some corruption.

I suggest you stop the VM and create a new one to test. One suggestion is to use “host” (not “kvm64”) under CPU and another is to use “q35” for the machine.

You could also follow or consult my guide.

Thank you very much for your rapid response.
When I create a new VM for HAOS will I be able to use a backup from the old one to recreate what had been there?
Shall I use the same IP as before to avoid changing the settings for example for the MQTT broker etc.?


Yes that should work
