After an uptime > 600 i had to restart a guest. But now i cant boot the VM

Error starting worker failed: unable to parse worker upid 'UPID:proxmox:00095558:106951258:53EC9BDC:vncproxy:105:root@pam:' (500)

Any Idea?

is there a quick workaround for that maybe? The server in question is about to be decommissioned anyhow (different guy, same problem. its a super old 2.3 even)

Made the required changes to /usr/share/perl5/PVE/Tools.pm and also to /usr/share/pve-manager/ext4/pvemanagerlib.orig.js

and then, /etc/init.d/pvedaemon start

...but still receiving the error.

Really want to avoid rebooting the system, and just need backups to run again.

Running vzdump from the command line also fails. any ideas for a workaround?

PVE version 3.1-21
