    space missing for vzdump with pigz?

    Hi there, (where do I do "code blocks" with this forum software's rich text editor?) I did a manual start of vzdump for VMs (Somehow the vzdump cron didn't fire O_o) using this command line: root@proxtracs01:/etc/cron.d# vzdump -all 1 --mailnotification always --mode snapshot --mailto...

    Ceph (or CephFS) for vzdump backup storage?

    We have a small Ceph Hammer cluster (only a few monitors and less then 10 OSDs), still it proves very useful for low IO guest storage. Our Ceph cluster runs on our Proxmox nodes, but has it's own, separate gigabit LAN, and performance is adequate for our needs. We would like to use it as backup...

    slow proxmox backup

    We have a Proxmox node with 32 GB RAM and a Xeon Quad Core processor w/HT. We have created a single Windows 2012 R2 VM with 30 GB RAM and 8 cores assigned. The storage is SATA and so is the backup drive. There is no issue with the performance of the VM except when the backup is taken using...

    [SOLVED] 2nd node backup in 4.3 cluster are not executed

    Hello, i've 2 proxmox 4.3-9 cluster setups with 2 servers each. Everything is working as expected. Only the via web gui configured backups on the 2nd node are not executed on each cluster. I could not pinpoint the problem yet. The /etc/pve/vzdump.cron files look similar. Here is one example: #...

    SUGGESTION: Store VM NAME in vzdump backup filename

    I have an idea for an enhancement of vzdump: when creating a backup job, it would be great to have an option to store the guest's NAME in the backup filename (in addition to the VM ID). So with the option disabled the filenames would look unchanged: vzdump-qemu-240-2016_09_02-01_27_32.log...

    VZdump issue after replacing drive in raid

    Hello, I have ran into an issue recently that I haven't been able so find a solution on (Google seems to turn up no results). My node has 4 VM's (2 Windows, 2 Linux) that are on an LVM storage made up of a raid 10 array. One of my drives had failed and I replaced it, rebuilding went fine and...

    vzdump sparse files issue

    vzdump doesn't correctly handle sparse files. I have 459G sparse file, that happens because I've implemented SSO based on FreeIPA, and users usually have high user id, and lastlog creates sparse file which gets as big as 459G. ipadmin@proxy:/var/log$ ls -slh lastlog 16K -rw-r--r-- 1 root root...

    PVE Host seems to go "offline" periodically while moving a virtual disk

    Hello, I first noticed this when using VZDump to backup a VM sitting on a ZFS filesystem to an NFS share on a different host. I am at the moment trying to migrate a 1 TB virtual disk from a Zpool that I wish to destroy and rebuild. The NFS target is backed by a ZFS file system on a fast SSD...

    LXC backup and multiple raw disks

    Hi everyone, We actually face a problem for scheduling backups of lxc containers with a second raw disk as a mountpoint (mp0). vzdump seems to ignore this and only backup the raw rootfs. Even with options like backup=1 or backup=yes specified. Here is the container conf: root@pmx1:~# cat...

    [SOLVED] lxc and 'exclude-path' in /etc/vzdump.conf

    It seems to me that backing up a lxc excludes some paths per default as mentioned, but not explicit called, in [1]. But in my opinion excluding /var/log/* MAY be a bad idea as this excludes everything - although some programs are expecting existing log paths after restoring, apache2 for example...
