[PVE-User] stuck container

Hi all,

Host PVE version: 6.2-6, Debian 10.4

Dual host set up using zfs and replication.

Container: Debian 10.10

The container responds to ping and telnet to SSH port but I can't ssh to 
it, access via PVE console or stop/start it seeing all sorts of errors:

command 'lxc-stop -n 100 --timeout 5' failed: got timeout
TASK ERROR: received interrupt

command 'lxc-stop -n 100 --timeout 5' failed: got timeout
TASK ERROR: got unexpected control message:

trying to acquire lock...
TASK ERROR: can't lock file '/run/lock/lxc/pve-config-100.lock' - got 
timeout

malformed authentication string
TASK ERROR: command '/usr/bin/termproxy 5901 --path /vms/101 --perm 
VM.Console -- /usr/bin/dtach -A /var/run/dtach/vzctlconsole101 -r winch 
-z lxc-console -n 101 -e -1' failed: exit code 255

 From the shell I tried deleting /run/lock/lxc/pve-config-100.lock, 
killing all processes referring to container 100 and starting it but no joy:

pct reboot 100 --timeout 5
trying to acquire lock...
can't lock file '/run/lock/lxc/pve-config-100.lock' - got timeout

pct stop 100 --skiplock 1
trying to acquire lock...
can't lock file '/run/lock/lxc/pve-config-100.lock' - got timeout

pct shutdown 100 --forceStop 1 --timeout 5
trying to acquire lock...
can't lock file '/run/lock/lxc/pve-config-100.lock' - got timeout

pct stop 100 --skiplock 1
[stalls here]

All the other containers appear to be running fine.

Any ideas?

Thanks,
Adam
