sync group filed - connection closed because of a broken pipe


Mar 18, 2021
Starting a while ago we've had some issues with syncing some backups to our offsite PBS.
Upgrading to v3 didn't change that, unfortunately.

The task would fail with the following message:
 sync group vm/208 failed - connection closed because of a broken pipe

That only happens for about 50% of our VMs—what's the best way to troubleshoot this?
