Container with attached backup was stopped via vzctl stop, however buse backup was not unmounted

# ls -l /buse
total 0
drwx------ 1 root root 0 Jan  1  1970 {0f1a2b98-75da-4445-a3fa-ae6f515c5957}_{e34468b2-19cf-48df-a525-682d50cf25ec}_private.tib

As the result it is impossible to restore the container from that backup:

Failed to restore the VM: Cannot restore the virtual machine from backup {e34468b2-19cf-48df-a525-682d50cf25ec}, because the backup is attached to a virtual machine. Detach the backup before trying to restore the virtual machine again.


vzctl ignores buse mounts.

This behavior recognized as product issue #PSBM-29752 "The vzctl utility does not recognize backups attached to containers".


All container operations should be done via prlctl once buse backup is attached to the container.

In case if container was stopped via vzctl and later deleted so it is no longer possible to use prlctl to stop buse mount together with the container, it is possible to unmount buse:

# umount /buse

To remount it:

# bused /buse /usr/lib64/buse

Please note this will reset all mounted buse backups.
