  1. Retention & sync jobs

    Hello all, I'm thinking about migrating to PBS for on-site & off-site backup. While the connection between headquarters and branch office is relatively (very) slow, the backups have always lagged behind for some days (using copy job in Veeam). The lagging is not a problem while is ok that i...
  2. [Solved]PBS Retention Policy

    Hello, With the PVE backup job also providing a retention policy option, what is now the recommended way to set up retention policy? Implementing it in PVE seems natural since the backup job details will show you the retention settings as well giving you the complete picture. Does implementing...
  3. Errors after VM recovery

    Hello. I had PVE and PBS installed on the same host on the same SDD. A backup was made on the second HDD using PBS. I initiated an SSD drive failure, changed it, reinstalled PVE and PBS. Edited the datastore.cfg file to see my backups in PBS. This went well. I got my VMs back successfully, but...
  4. Cleanup Backup system from unnecessary folders on rpool

    Dear Proxmox fans, I used to experiment with Proxmox Backup system and also have previously tried to use Proxmox Backup Client for more manual way to do backups. Now, I don't plan to use the Client manually anymore and here is the question: Which of the following folders are really Backup...
  5. PBS datastore

    Hello, I have Proxmox & TrueNAS on my network. I created a PBS container on Proxmox and want to use the TrueNAS as the backup datastore for PBS since I have already setup ZFS Replication from TrueNAS to another server. So when I use TrueNAS for PBS, I would get 2 backups for the price of 1...
  6. Backup job spam

    Hi all. Proxmox started spamming with a backup job. Immediately after the task is completed, it starts it again. What could it be?
  7. [SOLVED] [vm backups] Where are the full backups of my vms?

    Hello everbody, we are using pbs 2.2.5 and I have to admit that I don't fully understand the backup solution yet. My question in a nutshell: "Where do I find the full backups of my vms?" I know that pbs uses incremental backups, but as far as I have used incremental backups in the past, I...
  8. Restoration of specific files by NFS/CIFS/DAV

    Hi I have a Linux server where I must restore 40Go of files. This server is hosted in a VM on PVE, and backuped on PBS. The backup file is encrypted by a key known by PVE administrator, but not the VM owner (so I can not deploy the backup-client on the VM). I don't want do download a 40G file...
  9. Removing ifupdown during Proxmox Backup Server Install Bricks AWS EC2 VM

    The goal is to spin up a EC2 instance that runs PBS for off-site backups. I followed the instructions here I spun up a fresh Debian 11 (HVM) instance and attempted to install PBS with 'apt-get install proxmox-backup-server'. When the installer removes ifupdown, we lose network connectivity to...
  10. LXC Restore Fails on Extraction: Disk Quota Exceeded (os error 122)

    Hello, I have recently upgraded my PVE data store (zfs) with some larger drives and am having an issue restoring my largest LXC container. Once the transfer is completed, it throws the following error before deleting the copied data: recovering backed-up configuration from...
  11. General backup thoughts - discussion starter

    Hello Everyone, This could be TL;DR I use Proxmox from the very beginning and I use ZFS for ages back when I had to compile it by myself and official PVE did not support using ZFS. I use smaller clusters (2 - 6 nodes, but a cluster is a cluster in case of 3+ nodes, so, if you see one, you saw...
  12. [SOLVED] 2x PBS, one Enterprise one No-Subscription Repo

    Hi Guys, i have a question related to updates on PBS, i have one (Main) PBS with an Enterprise Repo and a (Slave) with the No-Subscription Repo, the datastore is fully synced to the slave (sync-job initiated via slave). I guess it's not recommended to have these differences on the repos when...
  13. Proxmox is sending backup to pbs in clear text when encryption file is unavailable

    Hello everyone, I just discovered something really odd regarding the encrypted backups to pbs and I wanted to share. I have setup my encrypted backup to a locally hosted pbs instance. The encryption key is stored in client at etc/pve/priv/storage/<STORAGE-ID>.enc. If you remove this file...
  14. PBS TFA deaktivieren - Login Probleme

    Guten Morgen liebe Community, seit einigen Tagen ist auf meinem PBS kein Login mehr möglich. Über den Benutzernamen und das Passwort komme ich noch hinaus, die Eingabe vom zweiten Faktor klappt jedoch nicht mehr. Gibt es die Möglichkeit die 2FA Option für den Benutzer root(pam) zu deaktiveren...
  15. Why PBS doesn't show HOST format in PVE content interface?

    Hi! I'm using (or trying to) PBS, and there is something really weird: why it is possible to see the backup content of CTs and VMs format in the PVE interface, but not the HOST format?
  16. Is PBS "compatible" with docker?

    Hello! I'm trying PBS for the first time, and I'm facing some trouble with the backup of just one of my containers. This problematic container is running docker (Portainer, Traefik and a bunch of others). There are 3 volumes attached: 1) root disk: 6GB (backup=yes) 2) /opt: 8GB (backup=yes)...

  18. Writing generic data to tape

    Hello, due to limitations of our setup and Proxmox combined, I'm in need of writing some generic Data to tape. Basically, I want to sync files (from a windows box) to Proxmox, and then write that to tape(s). I can of course create a datastore, and just dump the files into that folder, the...
  19. Stopped receiving emails from successful backups or any communication altogether such as cron jobs.

    I'm wondering if any body else is having issues. I have stopped receiving notifications from PVE. Either through Outlook or Gmail accounts. Could this have to do with their emails becoming more secure? Or perhaps this is an internal issue? I would appreciate help. I think the latest email I...
  20. How to handle datastore on NFS share that is offline most of the time?

    Hi, Right now I got a single PBS-VM1 on Host2 that got its datastore from Host2 via NFS. And this PBS-VM1 and NFS share is available all the time. Problem is that I can't backup Host2 or guests on it, because if Host2 fails there would be no running PBS to restore them from. I also got Host1...
