I'm not an expert on vzdump, but it looks like the dump wrote a file and the errors you experienced were not serious unless of course the two files mentioned are very important, which I suspect is not true.

Did you inspect the tar file? e. g tar tzf /mnt/backup/vds/virt3/vzdump-201.tgz

You might consider using the snapshot option of vzdump.

vzdump --snapshot 201 --dumpdir ....

Jim.

Hi ,
I wasnt able to inspect /mnt/backup/vds/virt3/vzdump-201.tgz
seens vzdump delete the file if an error happen
so it finish taring the file then delete it .
I couldnt find sulotion so i had to alter vzdump a little so it wont delete the tars on error then checked the archive after the error wich is ok (the tar is fine)
so i guess my best option is to leave the vzdump altered .
I cant run vzdump --snapshot because its not on LVM .
