LVM-Thin not appearing as destination for new LXC


Nov 6, 2021
Hi All
I've just added a new node to my home cluster so I can migrate some VMs. However, when I look at the node's disks, it shows LVM-Thin in the list, but LVM-Thin does not show up as a destination for new VMs. The attached image should explain, PVE1 is the problem node.

As you can see, `local-lvm (pve1)` is missing from the left pane whereas it shows in the list of disks.

this means the storage configuration does not include that storage or maybe the storage is restricted to other nodes. On cluster join, the node inherits the cluster's storage configuration, maybe that's what happened? You can just go to Datacenter > Storage and if the storage exists, loosen the node restriction, otherwise re-add the LVM-Thin storage.
Thanks. I never did get to the bottom of this. I tried all sorts of ways to cure it, but finally vaped the server and did a re-install.
