I am very very worried because I cannot restore several LXCs from a backup done on PBS.
Here is the error I get:
recovering backed-up configuration from 'pbs:backup/ct/109/2021-04-18T05:00:02Z'
Formatting '/mnt/p03ssd/images/109/vm-109-disk-0.raw', fmt=raw size=26843545600
I am checking the configuration of the updates in /etc/apt/sources.list using nano.
I am unable to exit the nano console because the Control character is not caught by the console: when I type CTRL + X to exit the page, it types a 'X' instead.
I have installed PBS in a VM
I'm currently in the process of planning out a system for a new setup I'm working on. This will, of course, include PVE to be the host of some Windows VMs and other smaller stuff. Also, I want to host some sort of NAS (samba-only is enough) from that same host/server machine.
I recently setup PBS on a public cloud and have been getting these errors when trying to backup "larger" VMs(over 50GB).
VMs less than this size have been backing up without issues but I keep getting issues with larger ones. I finally was able to backup a 64gb VM after a few tries but haven't...
we have a recurring issue where one of our proxmox backup servers thats under heavy load stops working about once a month. The pbs stopped working differently every time but it was always due to the an Error some where stateing "Too many open files".

I had a pool in a degraded state on a server with the following config :

I have Proxmox 6.3.2 installed and in it I can add the PBS storage from the GUI. But there are several 6.3.6 (via the 6.1.7 or earlier upgrade) - there is no such possibility : ( Can I somehow fix this?
As noted in the doc, I connected the store to store2. I made a backup of VM 220 in snapshot mode. On the backup server, I received a save as in picture 1. When I go to the backup section for VM 220, the backup storage is empty. If I go to the storage store2 , I see the saves as in picture 2, but...
Hallo liebe Proxmox Community,
wir haben ein Problem mit APT Updates und den Proxmox Repositories.

i have some servers with vms on Proxmox VE 6.3-2 and vm with PBS v 1.0-11.
On PBS i mount cifs storage (samba share) with command mount -o uid=34, gid=34 (for backup user permissions)
But then i can't upgrade my VE from 5.x to 6.x and do so bad migrate vms:
i copy vm's disks, create a new vm on...
We are really happy with PBS! Back-up is much faster and we can hold more retention with the incremental/deduplcation function.
We have a dedicated PBS server with 12 x 8TB disk en 2 x Enterprise SSD for special device.
We currently have set special_small_blocks to 4K, is this the right...
I am wondering what kind of hardware people are using for PBS. I am actually hesitate between using an HPE proliant DL160 (bronze) CPU with 4 disks or an HPE DL180, which may be too much . Anything not expensive to advise that can liev in anoffice space? I am wondering supermicro are way too...
I just want to share the following story to prevent other people from making the same mistake:
I create a (unprivileged) Ubuntu (18.04) container to mimic a physical computer and to learn how to run proxmox-backup-client on another system with an external Proxmox Backup Server. This went very...
It is weird.
So i installed PBS 1.0-1 on good ol` HP DL120 G7. I use SanDisk USB Stick as system drive because all four SATA drive bays in this server is occupied by hard drives.
I choosed ZFS as root filesystem. Installation runs flawlessy. After installation server rebooted itself and i got...

I have a second PVE server that also has PBS (1.0.8) installed. This second server shall backup the VMs/CTs from the first one.
Most of the disk space is in LVM-thin as this will be used for VMs.
Is it possible to use lvm-thin as a datastorage?
I don't know what kind of information would be...
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...
