I have 4 dedicated servers with Proxmox connected with RPN-v2 and using RPN-SAN. I have some VM with dd on rpn-SAN. But i can not backup the VM (the option is not available).
How can I process ?
What storage technology do you use?
Can you do
cat /etc/pve/storage.cfg please?
Yes for sure :
iscsi: hdd20 portal san-hdd-20.rpn.online.net target iqn.2013-01.net.online:xxxxxxx3 content none dir: local path /var/lib/vz content vztmpl,snippets,backup,images,rootdir,iso maxfiles 3 shared 1 lvm: NAS1 vgname nas1 base hdd20:0.0.0.scsi-14945540000000000af6bae14924486c8273e97ae0231e203 content images,rootdir shared 0
It seems like you’re using RPN-SAN with the LVM storage type.
According to the documentation, snapshots (aka backup) are not available with this type.
You may have to use another storage type to perform backups
I understand. I follow this guide : https://documentation.online.net/fr/dedicated-server/tutorials/network/configure-rpn-san/proxmox
How I can modify the configuration to have the snapshot features (I can order another san) ?
I tried without success.
Could i use rpn-san with zfs over scsi ?
