Hello,

My Proxmox host crash while in the process of backing up KVM virtual machines. Attached is the screenshot of the error I got on the console. I was using lzop for the scheduled backup. I have changed that to gzip and the schedule ran last night without locking up the host. What could be the cause of the lockup during backup?

I suggest you upgrade to latest version (3.1) and then you test again. 2.x is outdated.
