Transfer Backups from PVE to PBS


Jul 8, 2021

i got a few backups on my local backup storage on my PVE server. Is there a way to move and migrate them to a new PBS?
Do i have to transform the format of my backups? My current ones are all using vma / vma.lzo and as far as i know does the BS use a different format (meaning the .fidx and .blob-files)

Thanks in advance for Answers!

This what i was looking for, but indeed there doesn't seem to be any way.
Im flabbergasted why this is not existing yet, i;ve a client who want to migrate to PBS but has like 80Tb that needs to be transfered.
(or phased out, create new backups on PBS leave the old for cleanup)
