Hello everyone, I need help!

I have a problem when i backup my VM windows to SMB storage on windows.
The backup task does not stop.
I tried to do vzdump --stop and kill -9 processId. Its not working
I had to restart my node to stop the task
I have umount and mount my storage SMB.

The backup task works with a debian vm
Proxmox Version 8.0.3
Best regards,
