Dear all,

I hope I may ask for your help. While trying to create a new container, I receive this error message:

Cannot create new thin volume, free space in thin pool pve/data reached threshold.

I do not see why there would be a free space issue, the output of pvesm status is as follows:

Name Type Status Total Used Available %
local dir active 59547564 25421384 31068928 42.69%
local-lvm lvmthin active 904896512 51036163 853860348 5.64%

I hope the community can guide me where to look for possible issues.

Thx much!

Whats the outout of vgdisplay and lvdisplay?

Please put the output between CODE-tags otherwise it's really hard tread to read those tables.
