    Backup job failed with err -125 - Operation canceled

    Hi Everyone, I am in the process of migrating the VMs from one proxmox server to another so I can update the proxmox to 8.1. I am creating the backups of VM, then send the backup to the other proxmox server and then restore that VM. The virtual machines are running critical micro-services due...

    Backups failing for some VMs, while working on others. All have qemu-guest-agent installed.

    So for reasons I can't figure out, when I run a backup for all my VMs and Containers, some VMs fail and others work fine. All containers backup fine. The only thing that's different, from what I can parse, is that VMs that were created in Proxmox with a new drive succeed. However, VMs that were...

    [SOLVED] How to browse the files of a VM backup

    I saw that this question shows up often but I still didn't found an answer. On PBS I can browse directly the content of a LXCs backup because it's done file-level. On the other side, VMs backups are done on the block-level so I can't directly browse their content. My final question is...

    how can i recover the disks of a deleted VM?

    Hi, I deleted a VM knowing that I had the restore backup done the day before (I do Daily Backups), but unfortunately the backup was corrupt, is there any way to recover that VM? I no longer have any disks, I would also need to just recover the disks and then recreate the VM

    VM Backups on NFS Storage

    I have a ProxMox VE environment in which my primary storage is an NFS NAS. From this NAS, I backup the images folder containing my ProxMox KVM VM's. I'm not using the inbuilt Proxmox Backup feature. I'm curious what the scenario looks like should I ever need to do a one-off restore of a VM...

    [SOLVED] About VM backup size

    I had a large Centos VM (32Gb) and to reduce the size of the backup I add a disk on my ceph storage with backup set to 0 (I toggle the no backup button and use a remote backuppc server for this area) and move all the data to this new storage (/dev/vdb). It remain less than 3GB on /dev/vda. But...

    [SOLVED] Backup: '/var/lib/vz/tmp_backup' full, how to use other mount point?

    PROXMOX VE5.0-33 does not succeed in backing up a virtual machine with a raw disk of 350GB. That's because during the initial sync, the '/var/lib/vz/tmp_backup' space gets full. The question is : How to use a location in '/mnt/bigdisk' for that where the VM is located? Or another technique for...
