An OACI VE backup experienced a failure, but the backup got created physically on the hardware node.

/var/log/pa/vps.log on OACI IM node contains these errors:

The following log extract can be found in /var/log/pa/vps.vm2vf.log on the hardware node, where the VE is located:

After such backup failures, the used backup space is not reclaimed.


The backup operation got stuck in internal PrlSrv_GetCommonPrefs call to the Virtuozzo SDK interface, which led to incorrect result of the operation. The behavior is planned to be improved in CCU-17582.


Remove the created backup and restart the vm2vf service on the node to remove similar stuck events:

# service PACI-vm2vf restart

In order to free up the backup space on the customer's subscription, it is necessary to contact Odin Technical Support and apply the following article for the failed backups:
