I'm testing the backup server and I'm getting the following error on some LXCs.

INFO: Error: HTTP Error 400 Bad Request: parameter verification errors
INFO: parameter 'encoded-size': value must have a minimum value of 13 (got 12)

Can someone tell me where the value comes or how i change it.

I have 10 CTs and with 3 I have this error.

Similar issue here. 10 CT's and the half of them are failing while backup'ing to PBS. I don't get the point about parameter verification errors.
Using pbs v0.8.9 on server and client side.
