5.3, cephfs and maxfiles


Oct 13, 2010

In gui there is no possibility to specify 'Max Backup' counts.

Moreover, if you add 'maxfiles' option to the storage.cfg file in cephfs section - this option will be ignored and deleted:
pvedaemon[2839]: file /etc/pve/storage.cfg line 25 (section 'ceph-fs') - unable to parse value of 'maxfiles': unexpected property 'maxfiles'

As a result, when I try to make a second backup, I get an error:
pvedaemon[10033]: ERROR: Backup of VM 112 failed - only 1 backup(s) allowed - please consider to remove old backup files.
