I have an nfs from my server hoster. in the proxmox webinterface under the point storage i add a new storage "nfs". everythink is working fine. the storage is mounted and i can see it in the webinterface.

now i started a backup job, but the backupjob have errors:

INFO: "....." failed: Operation not permitted (1)

so how can i fix this error? in other forums i read some stuff like "no_root_squash etc.". but how can i edit this settings in my proxmox webinterface. i would be nice if someone can help me. because proxmox have a function to mount or link nfs storages.

best regards and thanks for every help!
Any idea to fix this issue? i check all configurations. in the proxmox webinterface i mount the nfs storage correct. but if i start a backup job i have this error message: INFO: "....." failed: Operation not permitted (1)

I think you problem is that you have not the correct settings on the NFS Server side.
As you wrote PVE need no_root_squash, but this is a server side setting and not a client setting.
So you have to ask you hoster what he use as settings for the NFS exports.
