    [SOLVED] Prune & GC & Verify on encrypted Backups and are the Backups still incremental

    Hello, I want to store the backups of my PVE encrypted on my PBS. I am now wondering whether the pbs can still run a prune/verify/gc on the backups, since the pbs does not have an encryption key? My second question is whether the backups are still incremental at all?

    Testing Nested Proxmox on Encrypted Debian Install (Proxmox 6.4 + Debian 10.9)

    I created a VM and installed Debian with LVM LUKS partition and booted into it with no problems. I then installed Proxmox over this as per wiki and booted into it with no problems BUT I cannot connect to the web interface. Proxmox is working and I can access the console. What am I doing wrong?

    PMG Backup to PBS

    It is very nice that it's possible to backup the PMG config to a PBS. Even the DKIM private key is included in the backup. Two things are missing at the moment: - Encryption (which is implemented for PVE already) - Backup of custom templates (at least I couldn't find them in the backup TAR...
