Proxmox cluster backup notification email content

Hi. I have a homelab 3 node cluster running PVE 7.4. I have TrueNAS scale storage attached to the cluster. I have guests (vm's) on 2 of the 3 nodes. I set up a general once a week backup of all guests and have it email me always. The backups occur fine and are successful. I get the email notification as well BUT it only contains data / content for the guests on Node1. (I have 8 vm's on Node1 and 4 on Node2, nothing on Node3). The email shows the table and logs only for the 8 VMs on Node1, nothing on Node2. BUT if I look at the share on TrueNAS the backup files are there for all VMs on all Nodes. Any idea why it's only reporting on the contents of Node1? Thanks.
