I run backup task in PVA Management Node but it hangs with In progress status.


There can be several reasons for it, for example:

  • Backup was terminated by timeout
  • Backup processes were killed


NOTE: this solution will cancel all running tasks you have in PVA management node.

The workaround is to cancel such task. To achieve this you need to follow this steps:

  1. Kill all vzlpl processes on the hardware node with a container that is backed up now:

    ~# ps aux | grep [/]vzlpl
    root     35689  9.0  1.3 449452 46068 ?        Dl   17:25   0:01 /opt/pva/agent/bin/vzlpl /var/opt/pva/agent/tmp.38V68g
    root     35725  2.6  1.0 402508 34680 ?        Sl   17:25   0:00 /opt/pva/agent/bin/vzlpl /var/opt/pva/agent/tmp.tbn6jS
    ~# kill -9 35689 35725

    Ensure that these processes are terminated in few seconds. If some process remains running, this might indicate problems with disk or network share access, like NFS server being unreachable.

  2. Restart the service of PVA management node:

    ~# pvamn restart
