as I showed in my short description the best way to handle NFS is inside LXC, to enable NFS you need to log in as root@pam and enable NFS as an option to the CT.
From the other horizon I did something else from the beginnins on the FreeNAS instead.
I'm actually running a Debian VM on the...
NFS isn't the fastest way but with a low-end NAS (Netgear) as the other side in this case, and PBS saturating the 1Gbit/s network it is enough.
Going with a separate server for PBS with local storage and a minimum of 10Gbit/s network for your Proxmox cluster is always the better choice.
Log in as root@pam in Proxmox.
Download Debian 10 (Buster) template
Install a minimal Container (2 GB RAM, 8 GB HD) and then choose the container/Options/Features and then enable NFS.
Install the repo key
You're right, I inherited the LXC and saw that the centos-release-stream package was installed as 7th command, I'm checking with my colleague why he did that.
Anyway, there is nothing wrong with supporting rolling-release version which is a full CentOS-release as well.
Tom, I know...
This was an an LXC installed with the standard template and a regular "dnf update", it seems CentOS is moving all over to the rolling stream release by obsoleteing the old centos-release package.
Just happend the other day.

Actually, the problem started while moving storage from NFS to LVM (iscsi).
All VMs moved nicely and most LXC did as well but I have some which won't move.
Here's an example of what my LXC looked like while trying to move the storage before trying the backup-model:
I suppose LVM sohuld suppoort quota as I run around 50 other machines using it on the same storage.
But, yes, some of these older machines was created on NFS and even old openvz containers just converted to LXC.
I will try to restore the machine to the NFS-storage and then turn off quota, make...
I'm trying to restore an LXC backup-archive and get the following error message, is there a way to go around it?
Logical volume "vm-198-disk-0" created.

while running backups last night I noticed that I had "Loading" back again but this morning I saw it working as it should which made me check the load on the PBS-server.
It was really running hot on both cores I had supplied for the PBS. I've since added two more cores and will check...
