Really great! Works pretty good - tested with todays git.

I also tried todo backups with snapshots but this doesn't seem to work:

INFO: starting new backup job: vzdump 100 --remove 0 --mode snapshot 
--compress lzo --storage backuplocal --node serv121
INFO: Starting Backup of VM 100 (qemu)
INFO: status = running
ERROR: Backup of VM 100 failed - no such volume 'Stor1:vm-100-disk-1'
INFO: Backup job finished with errors
TASK ERROR: job errors
