  4. Proxmox Backup Server vs Integrated backup into PVE?

    So currently I am using Proxmox 6.2 on all my clusters. I have a Synology NAS unit that provides me over 60TB of NFS storage that I use to place the backups nightly onto. I use the integrated backup product that has been in PVE for a very long time. I've been very happy with the new ZST backup...
  5. Adding USB Drive for backups

    I followed this to create an area for my USB drive to backup to, however it doesn't seem like this can be used for the "Backup" feature of proxmox.

  10. Feature Request: Notes for Backup Files

    Title says it. I can't be the only one with a list of VM/CT backups wishing that those backup files showed more than just the CT/VM# and DTG. Proxmox kinda assumes that the latest backup is always the desired backup to restore, but that's just not always the case. I typically only do backups...
  11. [SOLVED] NFS Storage Cleanup?

    Hello Everybody, I have setup a NFS Storage on a Snyology RS816 unit to be used with my Proxmox setup. I've setup daily nightly backups to that location. However, it looks like the storage place is getting full and doesn't free up space when I delete the vzdumps there. Is there something...

    I have upgraded to the latest Proxmox 5.4-5 and now i'm seeing tons of broken pipes on backups. This seemed to only happen after I upgraded to the 5.4 release. Seems like it starts to copy the data then dies. Any ideas on what is causing this? pve-manager/5.4-5/c6fdb264 (running kernel...

  16. Networking Options

    Hello, I've seen this being asked, but I'm unclear on the actual answer. I want to know how Proxmox separates it's networks, if it does.

  17. Cannot restore backups in Proxmox 4.2-2

    For some reason, lately I've been unable to restore backups in Proxmox. It doesn't seem to be specific to a particular backup, and I've had the same problem with restoring any of them. I have plenty of space on the local system for the tmp directory - for example, the most recent backup I've...

    [SOLVED] Feature request: Allow manual execution of backup tasks via GUI

    It would be really nice if there was an option in the webinterface that allows to execute the backup jobs/tasks manually and not just on the schedule time. @proxmox team, this should not be hard to implement. Do you think that you can add this?
  19. [SOLVED] Anyone already using "IO Thread" and PVE-Zsync?

    Hey all, Has anyone been using pve-zsync with "IO Thread" on a VirtIO SCSI drive successfully? Any thoughts or feedback before I try it? This would seem to have the best of all worlds - minimally impactful backups + higher performing I/O. Thanks!
  20. Making backups small / thin as possible

    Looking for some feedback here, I recently noticed some of my backups were larger than I expected given the amount of actual data residing in the guest VMs. But I realized this is because some of those guest VMs had *previously* stored a lot of data and though I had deleted it it wasn't...
