Backing Up Proxmox with Veeam

Hello! I swear that I've done this before but for some reason on my new Proxmox 8.1.4 system I'm having trouble installing Veeam and backing up the OS. I first tried to install Veeam like I normally do on Linux systems (command below) but when I ran a backup I get the error
Veeam snapshot kernel module not found
I tried unstalling the veeam package and reinstalling with the veeam-nosnap package and now I'm getting
Insufficient free space for a snapshot in a volume group: pve
Is anyone out there backing up Proxmox with Veeam that can point me in the right direction? I use Veeam to backup everything else so I'm hoping to not make a special backup system just for Proxmox.

wget && sudo dpkg -i ./veeam-* && sudo apt-get -y update && sudo apt-get -y install veeam cifs-utils && sudo rm veeam-release* && sudo apt -y upgrade && sudo veeam
Yes, to backup the host itself. I have used Veeam on Debian before but I haven't run into these issues before so I was wondering if there was someone who has used Veeam with Proxmox and resolved these issues.
