Changed VM disk ID "reset" on Proxmox reboot


Apr 7, 2019
Hi All,

I created some VM's and wanted to have them with different ID's so I stopped the VM's, change the name of .conf file in /etc/pve/qemu-server to the ne ID and changed the disk names following the new ID in the .conf.

After this I changed the vm-<ID>-disk-0 /dev/zvol/rpool/data to the new ID by using:

mv vm-100-disk-0 vm-200-disk-0

This all works fine until I reboot the Proxmox box and the disk images are changed back to their old name, so vm-100-disk-0

What can cause this issue after/during a reboot ?
to rename zfs volume use 'zfs rename'
