Proxmox-Version: 7.1-1

My server is not live already so I boot and shutdown it every day to work on.
I have an active backup schedule at 02:00 every day.

Always when I boot the server and the scheduled backup did not run because the power was off at night,
the backup starts when proxmox is up and running.

After that the task history tells me, that all VMs get startet.
But no one is started. I have to start it manually... bad for LDAP.
I can not find any errors or sth.

When i reboot after the backup is done, all VMs get started automatically.

Someone got an idea, what is going wrong, that the VMs do not start at boot when backup runs first?

I already tried the VM option Delay, but it did not

hi,

can you post the journal from a boot, so we can check which things happen when?
also the config from the vm (qm config ID) and the backup schedules

thanks but there is not enough in the logs (it only spans around 7 seconds after the boot) maybe wait a little longer to gather the log (a few minutes at least)

Looks like I am to stupid.
This is everything in there.

Newly booted today and the journalctl stops right after Postfix and man-db regeneration.
Like in the attached file.
10 Minutes later the Output is the same.

EDIT:
Looks like folder2ram makes something strange with my logfiles..
I disable it and will check the log tomorrow.

Now i got a full log. (I dont know what folder2ram did there... will not enable it again)

I took a look at the logsfile and I could not find anything preventing my vm from booting.
  • Jan 27 18:35:00: backup job starting for vm100 (finished: Jan 27 18:35:41)
  • Jan 27 18:35:02 startall job starting (finished: Jan 27 18:35:12 with OK)
When the backup job is not scheduled the vms boots up.
joournal.txt is from a boot with scheduled backup
journal2 is from a reboot without scheduled backup.

Thanks for your Work.

I just edited my /lib/systemd/system/pvescheduler.service.
Will report back if it solves the problem.
