Hi all,

Wanted to change from CIFS to NFS, but now backups fail:

Code:

Funny thing is that out of 10 LXC's - 9 fail & one works:

Code:
()
INFO: starting new backup job: vzdump 102 --mode snapshot --remove 0 --node 0v3rw4tch --storage LXC_Backups --compress zstd

TASK OK

The config for my LXC's are all the same:

Code:
()
arch: amd64
cores: 4
hostname: SentineL
memory: 512
net0: name=eth0,bridge=vmbr0,gw=192.168.1.1,hwaddr=F6:CA:9F:AE:09:40,ip=192.168.1.27/24,type=veth
onboot: 1
ostype: ubuntu
rootfs: VMdata:vm-102-disk-0,size=8G
swap: 256

Any ideas on what the heck is going on???

*Update*

Appears to have been an rights issue on the Syno, i SSH'd into it and gave the backup folder rights as folllows:

/bin/chmod 1777 /mydir

Now everything is working again!
