Hi,
I have PVE 7.4-3 installed on my server, when the backup job (that backup every VM on a PBS in stop mode) starts every machine come back online except one (VM 102) that i need to start manually.
Until one week ago everything was working flawlessly, the only modification i did was to install a couple of new VMs.
Thanks in advice for your help.

Hi,
please share the backup task log (at least the part concerning VM 102). You can find it in the Task History in the UI.
 
Thanks for the support.

Sorry for the second post. Below there is the vm.conf file updated (the one that i posted above hasn't the start order options activated):

Sorry for the third post but i keep digging in this problem to find every info that count.
I noticed that the node when is rebooted, the VM starts following the order that i set up and than the VM is stopped (not shutdown, but stopped) and in the start event i have this log:
Code:
swtpm_setup: Not overwriting existing state file.
TASK OK
I already tried to delete and recreate the TPM state and the problem is still there.
 
From the log, it seems that the VM was started and then resumed normally:
Code:
INFO: starting kvm to execute backup task
swtpm_setup: Not overwriting existing state file.
INFO: attaching TPM drive to QEMU for backup
INFO: started backup task '096edce7-4d2e-4f7e-a8b2-18ec623e45c8'
INFO: resuming VM again after 21 seconds

What is the output of qm status 102 --verbose after the backup? Is there a kvm process running for the VM (you can check with ps aux | grep "kvm -id 102" for example)?

That message is normal. It just says that it uses the state file from last time. You don't usually want to remove the state, it's saved state after all ;)
