Hallo liebe alle,

ich hatte heute eine vm gesichert "backup mode: stop" - gzip ! .
Doch ich konnte immer noch auf die VM zugreifen und auch darauf arbeiten?

Sollte es bei einem "stop" die VM nicht mehr erreichbar sein?

liebe grüsse
das ist so gewollt, zitat aus der doku (
stop mode

This mode provides the highest consistency of the backup, at the cost of a short downtime in the VM operation. It works by executing an orderly shutdown of the VM, and then runs a background Qemu process to backup the VM data. After the backup is started, the VM goes to full operation mode if it was previously running. Consistency is guaranteed by using the live backup feature.
