[PVE-User] backup job blocked

I had a similar issue on my lab installation a week ago.
There was some issue during the backup to a NFS share which resulted in a locked vm.
I should of course fix the backup problem but it doesn’t feel right that a VM gets locked due to a communication error during backup.

Ämne: [PVE-User] backup job blocked

Dear all,

yesterday I had problem that link between pve host and nfs backup share was down
and backup could not not successfully proceed. VM that was backing up in this moment was in backup-lock and unavailable.

At this time both pve hosts (from cluster) had "dead" pve-web manager console and I had to restart services and this was no problem.

In order to (re)start VM I could not kill this vzdump job ...  at the end I had to restart the node manually ... pressing the power button

It turns out that losing link with backup nfs share could be very sensitive issue (during the backup) ?!

What are we supposed to do in such situation ?  is there any reliable way to shutdown jobs that block the entire cluster

thank you in advance and

srdačan pozdrav / best regards
