Hey Folks,

Does anybody know how to list the "Notes" inside a Proxmox Backup Datastore from the Command line?

This is what I see in the GUI:


But when I run the CLI command:

$ pvesm list proxmox-backup-01-T7500

I only get the following output:

proxmox-backup-01-T7500:backup/vm/142/2023-06-03T13:23:47Z pbs-vm backup 64424510443 142
proxmox-backup-01-T7500:backup/vm/143/2023-05-21T13:20:49Z pbs-vm backup 64424510479 143

How can I get the info which shows: 'almalinux91-template' or 'bookstack-alma91' on the command line?
