when running a file system backup from a server via NFS the backup fails and I get the following message:

backup failed: connection error: Transport endpoint is not connected (os error 107)
It worked 2 days ago but now fails every time.
ideas ?

thanks

Have you encountered any issues using NFS for your backup target? I have heard of other people experiencing NFS desyncs

I am using NFS as the backup data source, my backup storage target is local disks. Is that what you are looking for ?
I don't think that's quite what I'm looking at doing. I plan on running PBS on an old PC with an NFS share from my NAS mounted to /mnt/share_name and using PBS to back up directly to the NFS share

I didn't know if there'd be issues with this

I have played with that, and PBS had issues creating the initial datastore(s), that may have changed with V2, but it really wants the storage to be local.
I will spin up a vm instance tonight and test it and let you know what happens
