Hi, sorry if this was posted already but couldn't find a good example.
Recently I noticed that some of my backups have been failing and when doing some investigation I noticed the /var/log/messages full of

Code:
nfs: server x.x.x.xnot responding, still trying
I though the problem would be on the synology but when close inspection it seem its vzdump, the reason its vzdump was because after I stop the backup the connection was restored, but today I lost one VM and had to restore to a new vm, I decided to make a backup and boom immediately the nfs errors showed up again. :(

My vzdump.cfg

Code:
# cat /etc/vzdump.conf
# vzdump default settings

#tmpdir: DIR
#dumpdir: DIR
#storage: STORAGE_ID
#mode: snapshot|suspend|stop
#bwlimit: KBPS
#ionice: PRI
#lockwait: MINUTES
#stopwait: MINUTES
#size: MB
#stdexcludes: BOOLEAN
#mailto: ADDRESSLIST
#maxfiles: N
#script: FILENAME
#exclude-path: PATHLIST
#pigz: N
[/code/

My storage.cfg

[code]
nfs: nas-Backups
    export /volume1/SauronBackups
    path /mnt/pve/nas-Backups
    server x.x.x.x
    content backup
    maxfiles 10
Any ideas what might be?

Thanks

Hi,

I guess the problem is that your Synology is not powerful enough.
Limit the backup speed "bwlimit" and test again.
