Yesterday I did a update of PVE all packages. Since then I cannot delete some of my CT snapshots.If I try to delete them it will say cannot delete and check the name of the CT and then locks the CT.
Now the status says "delete" but never does. Is anyone else seeing this?

Do you see any message in the syslog regarding the snapshot and the storage? Are these snapshots still on the storage?

I see this in the logs:

Where does PVE store the CT snapshots so I can look if they are still there?

It seems there are no snapshots. You can check if they exist with the following command.
Code:
zfs list -t snapshot
If there isn't a snapshot anymore and you are sure that they don't exist anymore, then you can force the deletion of the snapshot entry.
Code:
qm delsnapshot <vmid> <snapname> -force

Thank you. That cleared it up. Just not sure where some of the snapshots went cause I never deleted them.
