Have you tested the proxmox power driver with latest proxmox 8.x


New proxmox version jumping from 7.x to 8.x was recently released.

The format that works for me needed to have the realm included for both the username and the token name. i.e.
username: pwr@pve
token name: pwr@pve!pwr

For this I have users that look like:

and tokens:

…and of course permissions to the appropriate VM objects.
