I by accient installed the vm on my local which is LVM and i was trying to move it to my vmdata storage with is ZFS i tried to move the disk but did not work. So i thought taking a backup and restoring but nothing. any ideas?

This is config of the dump

bootdisk: virtio0
cores: 2
memory: 6000
name: Zeus
net0: virtio=1A:33:3A:D5:02:1D,bridge=vmbr4
numa: 0
ostype: win8
scsihw: virtio-scsi-pci
smbios1: uuid=bd556cc5-73f8-44fe-bbaa-5d62413beae0
sockets: 1
virtio0: local:131/vm-131-disk-1.raw,cache=writeback,size=150G

Thank you

is your ZFS pool under load? how long it takes to create a zvol?

time zfs create -V150G vmdata/vm-134-disk-1 && ls /dev/zvol/vmdata/vm-134-disk-1

remove the zvol after test
zfs destroy vmdata/vm-134-disk-1
