Backup Promox Virtual Machines and Container

In today's post, we are going to explore how to protect Promox virtual machines and Container

Natively Promox is included with a backup option.

To begin with:

1. Configure storage where you want to put the backup data

Go to Datacenter > Storage > Add

In my lab, i will select NFS as my target

2. Once you have defined the storage, let's move into creating backup policies

Go to Datacenter > Backup > Click Add

a) Select the target to NFS that you created earlier.

b) Tick VM and LXC that you would like to backup

c) Define mode: Snapshot

d) Compression: ZSTD (fast and good)

e) Define backup retention to keep

Once done, all policies will listed on the screen

Click Run Now to execute the backup. You can view the progress of the backup status by double click the task.
