[PVE-User] Backup to samba share stalling/locking up

I'm testing backing up a vm to a USB Drive attached to a Qnap NAS,
shared out via samba.

It consistently stalls at 17% and can't be stopped via the web gui.
The only thing that works is a reboot of the server and the vm has to
be unlocked.

The samba share is mounted via the following in fstab:

//LOB/backup-offsite /mnt/smb-backup cifs username=******,password=****** 0 0

This is happening prior to the last set of updates and after they are applied.

Any ideas?

Side Note: It is proving incredibly difficult to setup a backup for
vm's on all nodes to a usb drive.
