/dev/loop0 read-only - Cant move lxc disk from NFS share to local disk


Jan 12, 2022
Just noticed that I accidentally created one of my containers with its storage on my backup nfs mount.
I tried moving the disk storage in the gui and got this error:

Formatting '/var/lib/vz/images/101/vm-101-disk-0.raw', fmt=raw size=53687091200 preallocation=off
Creating filesystem with 13107200 4k blocks and 3276800 inodes

mount: /var/lib/lxc/101/.copy-volume-2: cannot mount /dev/loop0 read-only.
Specified filename /var/lib/lxc/101/.copy-volume-1 does not exist.
TASK ERROR: command 'mount -o ro /dev/loop0 /var/lib/lxc/101/.copy-volume-2//' failed: exit code 32

Not sure what to do here, why is it erroring out if the command its running is mounting /dev/loop0 as ro?
How do I move the lxc disk back to my local storage?
