Hello Proxmox,

I was create a new VM ID 124 .

How can I upload and import my exiting image .qcow2 to this VM ?

root@pve:~# zfs list
NAME                       USED  AVAIL  REFER  MOUNTPOINT
rpool                     2.75G   129G   104K  /rpool
rpool/ROOT                2.74G   129G    96K  /rpool/ROOT
rpool/ROOT/pve-1          2.74G   129G  2.74G  /
rpool/data                 152K   129G    96K  /rpool/data
rpool/data/vm-124-disk-0    56K   129G    56K  -

Thank you

you have to copy it to the Host to /var/lib/vz/images/124/vm-124-disk-0.qcow2
Then you can run "qm rescan"
Now you see the image in your VM config as an unused disk.
