Backup work only on local node

I have cluster with 4 nodes, when I set backup on node1 it's backup only node1
when I go directly to node2 GUI -> DataCenter -> Backups
I don't see there the backup that set on node1

any suggestion / solution for that?

the backup is set for all nodes, but I can see it only if I login to the gui from node1
if I login from node2 IP and go to Datacenter -> Backups I don't see this backup
You need a cluster to see jobs made on a other node.

but first I will check if it's related to the incremental backups
These are not supported through us and will revert with every package update. Also the don't solve your issue.
