I Have two cephs cluster and i moved one vm disk from one to another with set delete the source disk.

So now i have one unused disk 0 on the old ceph pool.

I unset the protected vm and i try to delete the disk.

I Get :
Error with cfs lock 'storage-myceph': rbd snap purge 'vm-600-disk-2' error. Removing all snaphots: 0% complete.... failed

There are no snapshots.

Any ideas ?

virtio1: CEPH02:vm-600-disk-1,size=40G

The unused disk appear after moving.
What was the output of the move disk? I may be, that it couldn't delete the image and might have written the reason for it.

As @sb-jw said, are you sure all snapshots are gone? With that, I mean, the snapshots made with Ceph tools directly, as the info for those are not written to the vmid.conf.
rbd -p <pool> ls -l
ok i finnaly found and resolve my problem.

I used rbd snapshot. so before moving on another ceph cluster, we have to delete snapshot before.
This snapshot are not seen on proxmox.

Warning : not forget to unprotect snapshot if not : error

After i can move without problem

Thanks Alwin for the info.
