How to copy a backup from one Proxmox node to another

Backups are a requirement for any sensible IT deployment, and Proxmox VE provides a fully integrated solution, using the capabilities of each storage and each guest system type. This allows the system administrator to fine tune via the mode option between consistency of the backups and downtime of the guest system.

Proxmox VE backups are always full backups – containing the VM/CT configuration and all data. Backups can be started via the GUI or via the vzdump command line tool.

Step 1: MNT Part
Navigate to the backup part
/mnt/pve/NFS-BACKUPS# cd dumps

Step 2: Copy the backup tar file to the destination (Node)

root@proxmox:scp /mnt/pve/NFS-BACKUPS/dump/vzdump-openvz-100-2016_04_13-00_00_02.tar.lzo root@192.xxx.xxx.35:/mnt/pve/NFS-BACKUPS/dump/xtian.tar.lzo
vzdump-openvz-100-2016_04_13-00_00_02.tar.lzo
