I just have a couple critical services that require attention. I'm wondering if it's possible to have two VMs on different servers have a continuous...

    [SOLVED] Sync performance when using IP server instead of FQDN?

    According the PBS manual, HTTP/2 is used for transfer data. Does this work when using IP server for remote sync or for FDQN? Or is a FQDN a requirement for HTTP/2?

    Time synchronisation between PVE node/host and VM/guest without access to the Internet

    Hey everyone! As far as I understand, my Proxmox 7 cluster, installed on top of a Debian 11 Bullseye, uses systemd-timesyncd to keep the clock in sync via external NTP servers, configured either in /etc/systemd/timesyncd.conf or in a separate file inside /etc/systemd/timesyncd.conf.d/. All of...

    Proxmox Partial HA Setup Query

    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...

    Optimization possible?

    Hello! I've been using PBS since about a year now, love it! I know it is recommended to run the server with SSD data disks. Unfortunately I cannot afford it and have to use spinning disks. Backup and restore works masterfully and perform well, but verification and sync seems to be too slow. At...

    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...

    [INVALID] Garbage Collection fails for non-existent VM

    EDIT June 15, 2022 - I was looking at old logs. This is NOT an issue. Board admins, please delete this entire thread as it is completely invalid. I manually deleted chunks. Because I did that, I was unable to perform syncs. To fix that, I deleted my Datastore and recreated it. (See...
