I'm running this VM with 'host' mode to have AES cpu support in the VM.
But I can't make snapshot, the button is disabled, only backup works.

In others machine is active.
Where I'm wrong?
v3 - Proxmox Virtual Environment (2).jpg
really thank you.
If I clone the OS disk to qcow2 with the second disk remaining in the raw format and excluded from backup, I will able to use snapshot?
No. All disks must support snapshots. There's no way for now to exclude a disk from a snapshot
latest info,
in the server I don't have enough space in the partition to backup the big raw disk of 4999gb,
I'm a container running Duplicati software to backup dump files to wasabi storage, I can securely mount the folder where i store the raw disk and backup it live to the cloud?
