Thanks for testing and your feedback. You could try these
vmdks, they worked in VMware:
Yes, without the subformat=streamOptimized option the images (Debian, Alma and Rocky) work but they are sized about 2 GB.
I tried several qemu-img options and VMWare vmkfstools but without getting a smaller working vmdk.
I uploaded the working vmdks
here for testing.
Working qemu-img command:
qemu-img convert -f qcow2 -O vmdk ns8-image.qcow2 ns8-converted.vmdk
The qcow images (I didn’t test CentOS Stream) are working in Proxmox.
You could try to setup the vbox vm with just one bridged virtual network device in promiscuous mode.
Maybe the conversion to vdi works better from qcow image?

Next step that I have done, connect in Console with root, change password and if I do: “systemctl enable --now cockpit/socket”, Cockpit works but always no
In another test, I do not know when exactly, I had the
https://xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx/cluster-admin/ but impossible to connect with admin account.

similar issues with the Debian image in VMWare, please try a vmdk from here.
I tested converting the qcow image to vdi and it worked. I used a bridged virtual network adapter and could reach the cluster-admin page. If needed you can
download the working vdi.
