I have an LXC container running on a Ceph pool. It's running just fine. It has a nightly backup set up to run. For the last week or so, the backup keeps on failing with:

Code:
vzdump 60180 --mailnotification always --mode snapshot --mailto someone@example.com --quiet 1 --storage nas01-backup-7x --compress lzo

60180: 2018-08-29 01:00:02 INFO: Starting Backup of VM 60180 (lxc)

If I list snapshots of that container, I can see a snapshot left behind.

Code:
# rbd --pool ceph snap ls vm-60180-disk-1
SNAPID NAME       SIZE TIMESTAMP
    63 vzdump 65536 MB Wed Aug 29 01:00:03 2018
Even if I clean up the snapshot with:

Code:
# rbd snap rm ceph/vm-60180-disk-1@vzdump
... it doesn't help.

If I run a manual backup to the same storage backend, a NAS, but a different mount point, it generally works. I'm a bit baffled as to why this is failing.

Anyone have any suggestions or ideas for why this is failing?

BUMP ... No one has a solution for this? If I shut down the container and back it up manually, I can get a backup to work. However, that's really not a great way to go about it.

Same problem here. LXC on Ceph, backing up to CIFS. Strangely, I have several containers, but only one (debian 9 running a Unifi controller) is having the issue.

Code:
Task viewer: VM/CT 108 - Backup

I also have the same problem, backup sometimes fail.
It seems there are because ceph snapshot are not atomic.
vzdump can't mount ro snapshot, because need to replay journal log, but on ro mount it's not possible.
Maybe anybody have a solution?
