I used `zfs set mountpoint=/mnt/storage/ zfs-storage-sdx5` after creating the pool. If I try to move a container volume to this ZFS pool, it shows up as available:

but when I try to move I get `TASK ERROR: cannot open directory //zfs-storage-sdx5: No such file or directory `

Do I have to use the default mountpoint or is there a way to inform pve of the mountpoint (by editing storage.cfg)?

PS All software is current version.

You can't change the mount point.
This is hardcoded and can't be changed.

I never test it.
But why you do the symlink not in the other direction?
