I'm currently playing with PBS and wonder if proxmox and pbs can share a ZFS volume?

I've create a zfs subvol for VM data and one for PBS but currently after a reboot the shared zfs volume is unavaiable for proxmox. After searching a bit I found the message:

Nov 17 11:19:36 tstsrv050zvol_wait[5954]: Still waiting on 1 zvol links ...
Nov 17 11:19:36 tstsrv050zvol_wait[5954]: No progress since last loop.
Nov 17 11:19:36 tstsrv050zvol_wait[5954]: Checking if any zvols were deleted.
Nov 17 11:19:36 tstsrv050zvol_wait[5954]: Remaining zvols:
