proxmox 7.4
pbs 2.4-1

i have cluster of around 20 hosts, with dally schedule for backup of many vm\lxc to pbs

i had an external (not proxmox) storage crash, that many vms\lxc had nfs mount to it.

the backup caused most of the servers gui to hang, leaving most many lxc\vm in locked )
only direct ssh and reboot command helped.

problem on hanged nodes: proxmox status unknown config locked snapshot

any idea what triggered the problem?

once ill fix the server ill upgrade to proxmox 8 and pbs3
