Hi,

You cannot “unable to dump into snapshot”, this will create a infinite loop. Use a backup target outside /var/lib/vz.

Subject: [PVE-User] Backup VM online with snapshot LVM2


Hi, I'm doing backup the VM online but I received this error:



INFO: starting new backup job: vzdump 101 --remove 0 --mode snapshot --compress lzo --storage local --node proxmox2
INFO: Starting Backup of VM 101 (qemu)
INFO: status = running
INFO: mode failure - unable to dump into snapshot (use option --dumpdir)
INFO: trying 'suspend' mode instead
INFO: backup mode: suspend
INFO: ionice priority: 7
INFO: suspend vm
INFO: creating archive '/var/lib/vz/dump/vzdump-qemu-101-2012_04_25-16_30_43.tar.lzo'
INFO: adding '/var/lib/vz/dump/vzdump-qemu-101-2012_04_25-16_30_43.tmp/qemu-server.conf' to archive ('qemu-server.conf')
INFO: adding '/var/lib/vz/images/101/vm-101-disk-1.raw' to archive ('vm-disk-virtio0.raw')



The VM suspend and the backup OK but I want that the backup do online...



How can I create the VM with LVM2??



Thanks in advanced.
