Hi,

When I try on the PBS machine to use the default root@pam and localhost as repository it fails :

Code:
root@backup:~# export PBS_REPOSITORY=datastore99
root@backup:~# proxmox-backup-client snapshot list vm/100
Password for "root@pam": ********************
Error: authentication failed - ticket with bad timestamp: invalid digit found in string

Password is twenty characters lower/upper/digit (no special)

Client and server version is 3.0.2 up to date.

Am I doing something wrong?

Setting PBS_PASSWORD env var to the password gets the same result.

Using a token works : PBS_REPOSITORY='root@pam!testclient@localhost:datastore99' PBS_PASSWORD=xxx
 
do you have 2fa activated on root@pam ? if yes, this cannot work so you'd either have to continue using tokens or remove 2fa from the account
