Do you have some FW rules regarding MAC-Addresses or the like?
As the MAC-Address selection changed in Proxmox VE 7 due to new default 
n systemd's network link policy, as listed in our known issues[0].

It's now not the one of the first port anymore, but derived from interface
name and `/etc/machine-id`, which in combination should be unique but also

But, for some ISO releases (4.0 to 5.3) the machine-id for the installed host
was not always re-generated, which could result in duplication of a MAC for
identical named interfaces on two hosts.
We try to actively catch and fix that on upgrade by checking if the ID is one
of the known static ones (it's just a handful of possible IDs) on upgrade.

But if one cloned an machine (e.g., a colleague run into this in a demo
virtualized PVE test clusters they cloned from a template) that ID will be
duplicated and thus make problems.
That could be easily checked by comparing the `/etc/machine-id` content and
be fixed by re-generation[1].

Just noting that for completness sake, to avoid more investigation if it's
just that.
