Image is corrupt?


New Member

I woke up today to see one of my VM's had shutdown. On attempt to start it back up I was greeted with the following:
Image is corrupt; cannot be opened read/write
TASK ERROR: start failed: QEMU exited with code 1

I tried to check the image with qemu-img check and it says there is no corruption in the image. Any suggestions on how I can recover this other than from a snapshot?
