Hello everyone, I noticed after the last update to proxmox 7.0-12 and PBS 2.0-11 the backups finish ok, but with and odd info. I validated backup and restore, the images are fine, but this info shows on the end of every machine backed up:

INFO: Backup finished at 2021-10-10 00:10:17
Result: {
  "data": null
INFO: Backup job finished successfully
This is OK. The backup job does not return any data ("null").
In other word, the result condition code is "0" (means the process has successfully ended without error), right?

A bit confusing for those who are not familiar with the syntax :) ...
