Hello.
Mount a remote smb azure file storage in the proxmox host local file system can be a good solution to store backup?
I don't have local free space.

Thank you.
 
Yes, it could be used for that. The backup may be a bit slower, depending on how fast the PVE server can write to the Azure storage.
Thank you already configured, it's amazing! 400mbps!

The problem that i'm having is that don't allow me to mount the same share from the second proxmox host...
Can't be used one share at the same time from different location?!
 
storage 'shareXXX' is not online (500)

That rather seems like it is not accessible from your second host. The "is storage online test" on addition failed.

Can't be used one share at the same time from different location?!

In general one specific export from a share should be exclusive to a Proxmox VE cluster, to avoid overwriting files (VMIDs can only be unique in the cluster). You could also use different "subdir" entries in the storage config for the different Proxmox VE clusters (or stand-alone nodes), to avoid conflicts.

Yes I know, but I need to read the same share in the case i will restore the backup from the first host.

I really don't understand why azure don't allow to mount the same share from another host.
can be that the first host is using all resources and the share reject the connection?
I'm backup now 4,5Tb of data to the azure
