since recently extending a logical volume we are now experiencing backup failures :-

we have restarted the machine and we are not seeing any errors related, I have also searched the beta forum and found no related reports for this.
I tried logging a support case ID, but that site refers me to the forum.

BETA2 does not support continuing backup chain if the filesystem has changed. You need to start the chain anew.
