HI All

Honestly im newbie at Proxmox I have a disk with many virtual drives (.img files) what i want is to import them and use them in proxmox

a little bit of context, that hard drive came from a previous unraid server , my idea is migrate all my vms to proxmox

i am able to see my old disk


what i need is import the data located on that disk and I dont know how can i do it

apppreciate your support and help
Import the pool using zpool import -f YourPoolName. Then create a VM and see here for some hints on how to import the img files:
Hi DAnuin Thanks for your promt reply

I tried to import it however I can't see it , this one is the only zfs pool availabe and is the one that I created during the installation


i dont know if i should mount the disk or something like that before import the pool
