    [SOLVED] Dynamically set Disk (virtio0) limits using CLI (pvesh/qm)

    Hi, whenever I set disk limits using pvesh or qm command line tools, the setting is not applied immediately.

    Can't create VM disk with almost all the available size of the zfspool

    I create a zfs raidz1 with 3 x 4T disks and it shows that I have 7.04TiB available spaces. But when I try to add a new 6TiB(6144GiB) disk to a vm, it failed because of no space. How could that happen. That's a new raid I just created. When I lower the disk size to 5000GiB, it created...
