    Verification jobs failing after successful logrotate, Status unknown

    [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?

    GUI way to verify the vma.zst backup images

    To verify backup images, I have to run this in the CLI zstdcat /var/lib/vz/dump/vzdump-qemu-100-2023_05_02-21_36_38.vma.zst | vma verify -v - Would be very helpful if it can be from the GUI as well.

    ZFS Datastore - Fragmentation with SSD ?

    Hi, I have recently replaced all my HDD for 10 SSD for my ZFS Datastore. This is now extremely fast specially verify jobs (even if we can discuss the interest of verifying snapshots on a ZFS pool). The weird thing is that PBS reports fragmentation on the related pool : AFAIK, on a SSD...

    Verify always verifies all backups

    Hi there, what is the reasoning behind the verify command always verifying all backups, even those already verified? I don't think a new backup modifies previous backups, correct? This almost takes a full day to verify our 500 backups from our cluster.. thanks!
