  1. This is something I found right after the last release. It will be fixed in the next version. Glad you figured it out though. If anyone else runs into this, you can also fix it by running this from the terminal (which will force the vmbackup plugin to fully uninstall). removepkg vmbackup*
  2. Yeah, that should be the only thing you need to change. If it isn't, then I have something to fix haha
  3. @CS01-HS Your issue can be fixed by going to the Danger Zone tab and setting "Disable restrictive validation" to "Yes" @peter76 your issue can be fixed by going to the Danger Zone tab and setting "Disable custom cron validation" to "Yes" Additional Information: @CS01-HS There are limits in place to prevent people from choosing values that could be dangerous without making sure they understand them. Also, if you only need 1 backup, why not just use "Number of Backups to Keep" and set it to 1 instead of using "number of days to keep backups"? @peter76 With cron it
  4. Normally I would have, but I just didn't have a chance to yet. My life is still a bit of a mess after moving (I'm currently sitting on the floor while I type this because most of my furniture won't arrive for another week haha). I'm planning on incrementing the version later today though, but I wanted to get the quick and dirty fix out sooner rather than later.
  5. I finally found the issue. For some reason, several of the files had their EOL character changed when I pushed the last update (I'm blaming GitHub). As long as you have removed the broken version this should work. If you get an error saying that the plugin is already installed when you try to install this version, you will need to remove the the old version. If you have already removed the old version and are still getting an error saying that the plugin is already installed, run the following terminal command and try again. removepkg vmbackup*
  6. I just wanted to check in and say I am still working on this. Unfortunately my new ISP couldn’t get my Internet going yesterday, and had to schedule another appointment for earlier today. Which meant I wasn’t able to start on this until now. Hopefully it is a quick fix [emoji1696] Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  7. Dang. Sorry for the issues with the latest version. I wasn’t having them on my server (although mine was still on 6.8.3), but I must have messed something up when I uploaded the latest version to GitHub. I am arriving at my new place this afternoon, so I’ll update my server and try to get a fix out tonight. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  8. Whoops! typed the wrong filename. I think it should work now.
  9. In light of the official release of 6.9.0 I have removed the max version restriction. I am not able to confirm how well it works this week because I am moving across several time-zones. I am also still working on a new version. As a quick heads up, the new version will be dropping support for pigz, but gzip will still work for anyone using legacy compression (this change should not be breaking or require any user input). I also fixed a few bugs, and am adding a few new features.
  10. Hello, long time no see. I am truly sorry to see so many of you have had an issue with this plugin, and it was not my intention to abandon it for as long as I have. Sadly, life had other plans (as it often does). I've recently found myself with time to tinker again, and as such I've released an update that does a few things to try and address some of the issues I am aware of. Unfortunately, I haven't been able to replicate many of the issues others are having, so my ability to test has been limited. I also can see that the operation of some of the advanced functions isn't imme
  11. I tried the vmbackup from CommunityApplications but it just does not want to trigger the backup

    I have the vm's in the cash pool that is mapped to the appdata folder

  12. For what it is worth, the direct mount did not actually fix it for me, just obfuscate it by making it so loop2/3 didn't show up in iotop. When I checked the SMART status I wound up with just as many writes as before, so I would be interested to hear your results. It seems like I might be an outlier here, so possibly I have a different issue affecting my setup.
  13. A note on this from my experience. I actually did this and it worked, but when I went to make changes to the dockers it failed and they would no longer start. I think I could have fixed it by clearing out the mountpoints, but I opted to just wipe the share and then re-add all the dockers from "my templates" which worked just fine. So, can confirm --would not recommend. I did copy the libvirt folder though and have not noticed any ill effects (...yet. haha)
  14. It's funny you mention that. I haven't rolled the workaround back yet, but I'm starting to wonder if it isn't fixing the issue so much as obfuscating it. I'm planning on rolling the fix back later today/tonight to see what happens. I got some metrics by basically doing the same thing as your script (except manually). According to SMART reporting, my cache drives are writing 16.93GB/hr. This is even though when I implemented the workaround I also moved several VMs and a few docker paths to my nvme drives just to reduce the writes further. I'd be curious to know what o
  15. For anyone else that needs it, I was having more issues with libvirt/loop3 than docker/loop2, so I adapted @S1dney's solution from here for libvirt. A little CYA: To reiterate what has already been said, this workaround is not ideal and comes with some big caveats, so be sure to read through the thread and ask questions before implementing. I'm not going to get into it here, but I used S1dney's same basic directions for the docker by making backups and copying files to folders in /boot/config/. Create a share called libvirt on the cache drive just lik
