I was trying to update my proxmox server and it has been removed from cluster after installing update,

When I have restarted the system I'm unable to access GUI and server accessible from ssh

But I need to take vm backup and my pve configuration file has been deleted

I have prepared another server to accommodate the backups machine.?

How you did upgrade and from which version and to which one?

If you have access to that server, may you provide us with the output of the following commands:

ls -la /etc/pve

pveversion -v

systemctl status pveproxy.service pve-cluster.service pvedaemon.service
Hi found a away to recover backups - plz close the thread

File located /var/lib/vz/dump/ backup files

You can copy sfc -C file path /remote server : file path
