Hi,

I wonder if it possible to make a flag like 'use vm name in backup name'.

Cause if I backup from diffrent PVEs wich same VM ID, or when I delete a VM but hold the backups avaiable, there could a name mismatch.
I would be a good thing, when there are UIDs for the vms to avoi that, but for human beeings it should better to take the VM name?

We always use the VM name like the DNS name of the child, so this is always unique for us.

Bye

Gregor
