Afternoon all,

Has anyone added qm unlock <vmid> to a hookscript? The vm gets locked, and most of the times I manually have to unlock vm in order to start it again, or any suggestions.

Thank you
this will not work, since the hookscripts are executed during a lock...
only if the backup was not successful
