to make sure every produtive VM will be backuped, even if it will be setup later, we are running the backup jobs with option "Selection Mode: ALL" on every node. What we don't want to be backuped are the VM templates. Is there an option avaiable to exclude templates from backup jobs...
we are using scripts for the initial setup of our PVE systems. Is it possible to setup backup jobs by shell command? The only way I'm currently found is to modify /etc/pve/vzdump.cron and add the jobs. I'm not sure if this is a valid way to do that because there is a note that this...

I can confirm that this issue is fixed. I tried this settings on one of the affected hosts and it works well. The midday backup just finished and now the content count shows 2 versions.
many thanks for your support. So I know that I have to focus on the PVE hosts to find the reason for this behavior, and it seems I already found it. For the other users, I will try to explain what I think what exactly happened, maybe it helps someone who is experiencing similar...
I'm currently experiencing some trouble on both backup servers (1.1-13 and 2.1-4) with the retentention policies on some of the PVE backups (not all). There are no settings on the PVE hosts so retention is controlled by the backup servers. There are policies set on the datastores for...
I want to share my solution that I'm using for encrypted storage on PVE. This manual is mainly addressed to beginners, because people who are familiar with ZFS know these things as natural features.
If you are using worlds best virtualization PVE in combination with worlds best...
for the reason that our current PBS equiped with classic SATA-HDD is fallen into a 24/7 Job to manage 8x PVE backups with Prune, GC and verify jobs, we are planning to setup a new one with latest hardware technology.
We are planning to use AMD based server hardware with 64GB ECC RAM...
just want to know if someone is using Wireguard installed on a PVE6 host and expirencing any problems. Are there any arguments against that setup? I'm currently using it to access the VM network on a PVE6 machine - so far without any issues.
Thanks & Regards
I have to apologize, it was my mistake. After running the task for 5 minutes there came an error message:
Nov 11 08:14:06 pve00000 pvedaemon: timeout: no zvol device link for 'vm-100-disk-0' found after 300 sec found.
The reason was, the ZFS pool is encrypted where the VM is located. I...
@djgraff209 - Many thanks for your reply. I just checked the tail -f /var/log/syslog

I just upgraded our test environment (currently no subscription) to 7.0-14+1 and after rebooting the host it's not possible to start any VM. The task is running forever without any error message. I tried from UI and console. Anyone a similar issue?
Many thanks for your suggestions. I tried the old naming scheme in one of my first attempts, but for some reason it didn't work for me. So if this is working for you, I'm pretty sure it was my mistake.
I'm new to the forum and this is my first post. I want to share my working setup to install PVE/PBS from ISO on Hetzner dedicated servers without the need to order a KVM console. I know, there are already some manuals, but much of them are incomplete or does not work.
