move disk (.vdmk) or vm to local (not local-lv)

one proxmox is available to select lokal as target moving a disk, the 2nd proxmox offers lokal-lv only.

How do I get the disk or vm moved to local?

workarroud: ho can I import a .vdmk to lokal-lv ?

More Infos:
creating VM hat also no possibility to select hardisk local as target (proxmox 5.3-8)
on the 1st proxmox local and local-lv is a possible target for the HD (proxmox 5.1-41)

Any hints?
Are we talking about a cluster or 2 independent hosts?
Did you set the allowed content (disk image) via datacenter->storage->local
Hi i found a solution:
I Added images for "dir:" in /etc/pve/storage.cfg

dir: local
path /var/lib/vz
content iso,vztmpl,backup, images
lvmthin: local-lvm
thinpool data
vgname pve
content rootdir,images

On my older proxmox there was no setting for dir: at all, only for lvmthin: local-lvm

Problem solved!

Thanx for the hint
