After converting to qcow2 from raw conf errors

Hi all,

I've converted a disk from .raw to .qcow2 without a problem but when I tried the qm rescan -vmid 107 it throws:

rescan volumes...
Configuration file 'nodes/thoukididis/qemu-server/107.conf' does not exist

When I try to copy my old 107.conf file it doesn't allow me to write at all; it says that exist but is nothing is there.

root@thoukididis /etc/pve # cp /etc/pve/nodes/thoukididis/lxc/107.conf nodes/thoukididis/qemu-server/
cp: cannot create regular file 'nodes/thoukididis/qemu-server/107.conf': File exists

Even when I try to manually create the file under the qemu-server path I get a file exist.

Any help is very much appreciated.

It is a single server, the output from the above is:

root@thoukididis /var/lib/vz/images/107 # cat /etc/pve/.vmlist | grep 107
"107": { "node": "thoukididis", "type": "lxc", "version": 15 },

Thanks a lot
