EFI storage issue

During VM creation, when I choose OVMF (UEFI) and select a LVM-thin (Raw disk image) storage as an EFI storage. It'll fail to create the VM and shows below error.

unable to create VM 100 - command '/sbin/lvs --separator : --noheadings --units b --unbuffered --nosuffix --options lv_size /dev/pve_vg/vm-100-disk-0' failed: got timeout

*pve_vg is the name of LVM volume group

I haven't found any documentation mentions that EFI disk can't be stored in Raw disk image. Is it possibly a bug?
Please disregard this topic. I found that it was caused by without enabling "Qemu Agent" when creating the VM. Also, this only happen on Raw disk image storage.
