this ist my very first Proxmox problem.
I upgraded from PVE 6.4 to 7.1 which was all milk and honey and ran fine without any trouble.
But since the upgrade, I cannot backup a specific LXC container in suspend mode, only stop mode works.
The error shown is as follows:
I have configured PBS as per attachment,
I would like to have backups every two hours and keep the last 12 in order to have a backup every two hours of a whole day.
Also you want to keep the last 7 days, 4 weeks and last 6 months.
Now, the backup task starts only once a day at the...
I wanted to backup some VMs but exclude the /var/www/ directory, as it is saved via other method and quite large.
With VZDump the parameter --exclude-path is only supported within containers, but are there any alternatives or similar ways for VMs?
Thanks in advance!
We have a small PVE cluster that ran PVE 6.4, and when we upgraded them to PVE 7.0, our backup jobs for VMs failed (but not CTs). We have collected the following diagnoses.
The majority of our compute servers are HPE ProLiant DL388 Gen10, with Intel X710-DA2 SFP+ NIC (HPE Ethernet 10Gb 2-port...
I used a 6.3 proxmox test host on my desk to migrate some VMware VMs into Proxmox. I got them booting and running on my test host. I did a vzdump to export them, then sneakernet to get them into their target proxmox clusters. The VMs I imported into a Proxmox 6.4 cluster worked fine. The VMs...
I’ve got 3 VMs and 2 containers running. I normally do backups onto a Synology NFS share. Both containers as well as one VM give me error 5 (below) when trying to back them up onto the NFS share. It can’t be a permission issue since two VMs work fine. It’s probably also not related to the...

Hey guys, I'm in a bit of a pickle.
I'll start by going over my setup:
- Storage server running TrueNas with 10Gb networking
- ZFS pools
- One pool with 12x 2TB drives in raidz2 (storage B)
- Another pool with 3x 400GB ssds in stripe (storage A)
- Single hypervisor
- Boot disk is 400GB NVMe...
I found a few days ago that most of my backups on some Proxmox hosts are gone.
It seems to be a bug on some of my Proxmox Hosts, but not all of them. vzdump is removing all backups when a specific VMID gets backed up.
Here is the backup log of one host where ID 161 is bugged:
I have some custom vzdump.cron commands to run my VM backups. After I had reinstalled my Proxmox server some days ago and copied the following commands into /etc/pve/vzdump.cron, my scheduled backup do not run anymore.
When I create the backups via the web interface, the backups...
Ich sende einmal die Woche Backups von meinen VMs/LXCs über CIFS zum NAS (FreeNAS).
Das ganze dauert leider jetzt rund 2 1/2 Stunden und da ich das im "Stop"-Modus mache sind dann halt die VMs ziemlich lange nicht erreichbar.
Verbunden sind die Server per Gbit-LAN und bei normalem...
I am forwarding the vzdump result mails to Pushover (SMTP to Push-Gateway).
Unfortunately I cannot see the result of the vzdump in the title as it is too long for the smartphone screen.
Is there a way to change the subject of the result mails or do I need to use own hook scripts?
I try to restore machine (.vma) that not exist on new proxmox machine,

Hi to all,
I'm wondering if there is someone that knows how to include an unused drive (disk) when backing up a VM.
When I try the backup, either using the GUI or the command line,
vzdump 151 --node MyPve --storage MyStorage --mode snapshot --remove 0 --compress zstd
the unused disk I have in...
i have a scheduled backup. on a nfs VZDUMP backup file that configured for 2 backups.
the script files withe the following reason :ERROR: Backup of VM 112 failed - There is a max backup limit of (2) enforced by the target storage or the vzdump parameters. Either increase the limit or delete...
About a month ago the server stopped to send e-mail after performing a backup with vzdump.
In the logfile I do not find a line which indicates that vzdump does do this.
I also checked the /var/log folder if a file contains the target e-mail address, no result.
The mailserver is correct resolved...
We are trying to use a vzdump hook script to do some things. We have a Proxmox cluster setup with several hypervisors. We took a look at /usr/share/doc/pve-manager/examples/vzdump-hook-script.pl and made an adaptation:
