Symptoms

This article describes how to move container backups from one PVC/PSBM/PCS host to another and make PVA Agent recognize those backups.

After copying backups from one server to another, vzarestore -l does not show any entries:

[root@pvc ~]# vzarestore --list
Show existing backups...
No backups found.

Cause

The information about the presence of the backups is not synchronized with the PVA Agent database.

Resolution

Synchronize the backups using the vzbackupsync script:

  • For Linux:

    # /opt/pva/agent/bin/vzbackupsync
    
  • For Windows:

    vzbackupsync
