restoring backup, cant see shared storage backup file from other servers


Mar 15, 2011
I have 2 separate (non clustered) proxmox ve servers (2.1). Backing up vms on pve server1 (snapshot/lzo) to a cif shared storage, using local directory option in pve gui.

The backup works good. I can see the backup in the content tab from server1.

When I connect to the shared storage with the other pve server(2). I can't see the backup content that was written by pve server1.

I'm think its a ownership file issue as 1 machine can see the backup but the other server(2) can't.

Any ideas on how to fix this so the other server can see the backup file?
