  1. vzdump temp dir delete stale data?

    Hi all! my proxmox environment is consuming near to 100% disk space. I figured out my CTs only consume around 50% of storage. I found a folder called "/vz/vzdump_tmp_dir" which is configured in /etc/vzdump.conf as tmpdir. Currently, no backups are running. In the past, a couple of backups...

    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 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!

    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...
  13. backup/vzdump failed with err -5 - Input/output error

    Hi 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...

  17. [SOLVED] vzdump removing too many backups (prune bug)

    Hello, 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: vzdump...
