Hi all.

I'm on 7.4.3

When i try to make a backup in snapshot mode (or suspend) vzdump never ends with no error.

root@server:/backups# vzdump --mode suspend --all 1 --tmpdir /backups/tmp/ --dumpdir /backups --compress zstd --prune-backups 'keep-daily=2

First i try without tmpdir and dumpdir, but the result is the same, 3 days to "make" a backup.

In snapshot mode, my first container is not accesible while backup is doing.

In suspend mode, after interrupt the backup, my first container is in "Unknow status" and i cant stop/start or work with it :(
Now i cant login to GUI :(

My first container dont work

pct list dont work:

ipcc_send_rec[1] failed: Connection refused
ipcc_send_rec[2] failed: Connection refused
ipcc_send_rec[3] failed: Connection refused
Unable to load access control list: Connection refused

Login dont work

My /etc/pve is now empty :(

After reboot:

A stop job is running for login to default iscsi targets
