I just found out I can use pigz instead of gzip. Now I can use the higher compression without extending the time of running backups.
In GZIP you can define a Compressions-Level of 9 but default is 6. How can I see which compression level I am currently using with vzdump
and how can I change...
Hello. I want to move containers from virtuozzo server to proxmox 6. Here things I done:
I stop container and try: vzdump 0d6c6bf8-ce7f-4be6-a5e0-0ae102e8f323
and get error: ERROR: strange VPS ID '0d6c6bf8-ce7f-4be6-a5e0-0ae102e8f323'
Hmm.. ok, I found that I can change VPS ID and do that by...
hoffentlich ist hier der richtige Bereich dafür.
ich habe einen einzelnen PVE Server und habe seit kurzem massive Probleme beim erstellen von Backups.
Bisher habe ich (klassisch) über die GUI ein vzdump Backup-Job (nächtlich) erstellt. Leider führt das in bestimmten Konstellationen zum...
I'm starting to prepare for a migration and as part of that process I wanted to dump the VM's & LXC's to a FreeNAS hosted NFS mount.
vzdump 104 –-dumpdir /mnt/nas1 –-mode snapshot
400 Parameter verification failed.
vmid: invalid format - value does not look like a valid VM ID
My Versions are...
Guten Morgen liebe Community
Ich bzw. Unser Unternehmen hat folgendes Problem:
Wir müssen aktuell unsere Backups auf ein "langsameres" NFS System schreiben.
Um Dies zu verbessern habe wir in der Vergangenheit immer mit --tmpdir bzw. dem entsprechenden vzdump.conf Parametern gearbeitet und dies...
I'm testing borgbackup to copy our backups to some off-site storage. With the normal tar file and following ones, the deduplication isnt as effective as it could be. When I extract the vzdump and inserting every file one by one its much more space efficient. My question is now...
We are currently running a PVE cluster with multiple machines and serve about 15 LXC containers and 10 VMs.
We are using PVE replication (every 15min) to onsite PVE machines and znapzend to create hourly snapshots that are also replicated off site.
This should protect us against a...
I try to add ZFS storage, and want to write backups there. But only allowed contents are Disk Image and Container. Where do I put the backups?
I've setup up two no hosts in a new datacenter and tried to move LXCs from the old hosts via vzdump & ssh-pipe. This failed several times and I could break the problem down to `pct restore` from pipe:
root@host:~# vzdump 99999 --stdout | pct restore --storage ssd --rootfs 1 99991 -...
I'd like to further analyze the current backup status of Proxmox VE
So the log of the existing backup job is required
I double clicked task from the web UI, and then CTRL +a/CTRL +c/CTRL +p select, copy and paste.
But the LOG pasted is incomplete
You can see the action video here...
Please note that we have a backup scheduled for our VM's everyday. We realised recently that for one of the servers the backup logs says that the backup was successful but we cannot find the related vzdump file. Even when we take a manual backup the same is happening. Could someone please let...
I use Dropbox to upload encrypted backups of various things, including encrypted volumes, etc. as an offsite backup option in addition to onsite backups. My business is small so it works.
~20 VZDump backups, compressed, totalling around 130GB
200GB volume on the same SSD drive...
I would like to know if there is a way (or if is in roadmap) to add a description / notes to a vzdump file that can be seen so one can choose correct file to restore if there are multiple saved (i.e if I need to make some backups at some points). Maybe saved with .txt extension together...
Is it possible to execute a command in a container before backups?
Сan be using vzdump hook (--script)?
I want to execute 2 commands:
pct exec $3 -- psql -c \"CHECKPOINT;\""
pct exec $3 -- sync
or for this vzdump hook (--script) is not suitable?
I activated automatic vzdump across my PVE cluster. The problem is that each host starts the backup process at the same time and this make to suffer my backup server. Is there a way to make the backup one host at a time? If not, could you considerate to add this feature?
I'm started to get the following issue recently. Before it worked and for some reasons got broken.

Hello! I have an proxmox machine with 3 VM (Terminal Server, File Server and Domain Controller 2). The backups worked properly till last week. Now during backup of TS I got an error:
