I created my PVE scheduled backups yesterday on an SMB share on my TrueNAS. One of my VMs is TrueNAS. PVE ran through all the backups but the TrueNAS one failed. I guess this was to be expected but I didn't think of that at the time.
Are there any tricks to make this work? I'm...
i'm having an issue with my automatic script backing up 15 VMs in the same time.
So i tried to specifically backup only one, so i got this message and i don't understand why it's blocking:

Hello everyone. I was glad to hear about Proxmoxs' own backup solution (PBS). Unfortunately there are still a few difficulties to implement it. Following scenario. PBS runs in an VM on same Host. Mounted is a NFS mount as datastore. The backup of small containers (1gb) works fine here as an...

Hi. I've trying to run backup jobs overnight in a sshfs share, but I keep getting an access denied error

I have recently migrated to Proxmox 5.2-9 (previously I was running the last release of 4) and since the upgrade the scheduled backups cannot complete.
Everytime there is a container or a qemu vm that fails.
Last night the command:
vzdump 131 --mode snapshot --mailto "myemail"...
I've getting an error with the backup of an LXC container to my NFS shared storage for a while now. I was hoping someone could make some sense of the error message and point me in the right direction to get it backing up again. I have other CT's and VM's backing up to this shared storage...
We recently had an issue with our proxmox cluster after upgrading to the newest version that was most likely related to the kernel bug issue mentioned in github.com/lxc/lxc/issues/2141 which eventually forced us to reboot the updated hypervisor after it went unresponsive when we had to...
PROXMOX VE5.0-33 does not succeed in backing up a virtual machine with a raw disk of 350GB.
That's because during the initial sync, the '/var/lib/vz/tmp_backup' space gets full.
The question is :
How to use a location in '/mnt/bigdisk' for that where the VM is located? Or another technique for...
I'm in the process of migrating from PVE 3 to PVE 5. First I backed up and restored all the Containers and that went smooth. Next I backed up 2 non-critical Win2012 VMs, and those were fine.
Now, when I try to back up this last Win2012 VM, it just hangs on the backup.

Sometimes the VM stops right after the backup is started.
VM is Windows 2003 Web Edition SP2 x86
- Windows's system.log just says about unexpected shutdown
- Proxmox logs show nothing but vzdump error about not running VM
What else can I check? Any help is appreciated.
