    Hello,

    I'm started to get the following issue recently. Before it worked and for some reasons got broken.

    root@px:~# vzdump 117 -dumpdir . -tmp .
    INFO: starting new backup job: vzdump 117 --tmpdir . --dumpdir .
    INFO: Starting Backup of VM 117 (qemu)

    ERROR: Backup of VM 117 failed - unable to read file './vzdumptmp24888/qemu-server.conf'
    INFO: Backup job finished with errors
    job errors
    root@px:~#

    This particular VM is stopped. I tried to restart it and to backup a running vm, and got the same result. It's PVE/ceph cluster and it's not possible to backup a vm. There's enough free space. Have you seen such problem? I would appreciate any help! Thanks

    Answering my own question :)

    This works:

    vzdump 117 -dumpdir /var/lib/vz/dump/backups -tmpdir /root/

    This does not:

    vzdump 117 -dumpdir . -tmp .

    My version:

    # pveversion
    pve-manager/3.4-11/6502936f (running kernel: 3.10.0-11-pve)
