Wrong: I did not get the information from this list, even a post in the
support forum that lasted 24 hours and nobody had the answer, that includes
Proxmox engineers. I was astounded that nobody had any idea about what I
was going through. The list offered as a solution in the forum, is
incomplete,
https://forum.proxmox.com/threads/windows-vm-fails-to-shutdown-from-proxmox-web.54233/#post-249883

By the way, somebody should fix it.
I got the solution from Redhat.
