Code:

That's your problem. You're not allowed to create the file mentioned above.

i do that with the proxmox web interface, how i can change the rights on the folder ?
 
but that's work for all VM machine, and only not working for CT ?

well i m using samba now and works for the CT machine and NFS for full VM

thanks all
 
Hi,
but that's work for all VM machine, and only not working for CT ?
for unprivileged containers, the backup is done unprivileged with lxc-usernsexec -m u:0:100000:65536 -m g:0:100000:65536, so you'd need the unprivileged user to also have the correct access rights on the NFS.

EDIT: This applies for the tmpdir (which is on the backup storage by default).
