    I've been moving my services over to containers and it seems like containers that have a bind mount defined in /etc/pve/lxc/10x.conf can no longer be snapshot. I know snapshots in general still work because other containers and all my VM's can still be snapshot but for the two containers that I added Bind Mounts to the option is grayed out in the GUI, even on one that's I'd previously done snapshots on and they still exist for it as well.

    If anyone knows a solution for this please let me know.

    there is currently no mechanism to exclude mountpoints from snapshots, so if we find a mountpoint which cannot be snapshotted (e.g. a bindmount) then
    we cannot do a snapshot, although we already discussed a 'nosnapshot' flag, but no code yet

    Has anyone found a solution for this yet? This does not yet work in latest Proxmox 5.4-3 anyway.
