Cannot execute a LXC backup with stop mode on a HA managed and enabled Service


Mar 11, 2022
I run a proxmox cluseter. Both my data storage and 'machine' storage fits on Ceph. To avoid issues with HA and bind mounts I use ceph-fuse on LXC to access data.

As I use the LXC/fuse combination as i understand it there is no other option than to stop in order to do the backup?

Before I go up any blind alleys etc, am I missing anything? Is there another way forward other than using a script to turn off HA, shut down, backup and then restart with HA enabled? Has anyone already done one?
