Good day!
pveversion: pve-manager/5.4-6/aa7856c5 (running kernel: 4.15.18-14-pve)
the backup is successful, then run the command:
vma verify vzdump-qemu-xxx-xxx.vma

and see error:

** (process:16208): ERROR **: verify failed - got wrong block address - write beyond end
Trace/breakpoint trap

and restore fails with error:

** (process:9108): ERROR **: restore failed - got wrong block address - write beyond end
temporary volume 'local-zfs_vms:xxx/vm-xxx-disk-0.raw' sucessfuly removed
no lock found trying to remove 'create' lock
command 'set -o pipefail && vma extract -v -r /var/tmp/vzdumptmp9107.fifo /pool2/backups/dump/vzdump-qemu-xxxxxx.vma /var/tmp/vzdumptmp9107' failed: got signal 5

Please help in fixing the problem.

Best regards!

The backup of existing machines stored local and on NFS share and there and there recovery with an error.
If I create a new machine and backup it, the recovery is successful.
