Description of Issue/Question

I try to clone a VM on my Proxmox cluster using Salt-cloud.

When I launch salt-cloud -l debug -p stretch myfirsttest, it launch correctly the VM clone but I got a direct output error :

[DEBUG   ] Closing IPCMessageClient instance
[DEBUG   ] Preparing to generate a node using these parameters: {u'vmid': 118, u'name': u'myfirsttest'}
[DEBUG   ] post: https://localhost:8006/api2/json/nodes/alpha/qemu/10000/clone ({u'full': 1, u'newid': 118, u'name': u'test', u'format': u'qcow2'})
Usage: salt-cloud [options] <-m MAP | -p PROFILE> <NAME> [NAME2 ...]

salt-cloud: error: There was a profile error:

The exit code is 64.
The strange thing, is there is not any ERROR logs in all the debug output, but it fail at the end.

The VM is correcly cloned, but the name (myfirsttest) is ignored, it's call "Copy-of-Stretch" instead.

Here is my config :


    master: localhost

  user: admin@pve
  password: REDACTED

  url: localhost
  driver: proxmox
  verify_ssl: False
  host: REDACTED


    provider: px
    clone: True
    clone_from: 10000
    clone_full: 1
    clone_format: qcow2
    technology: qemu
    host: alpha
    image: stretch.iso
    size: ''
