NOOB backup questions to Synology iSCSI

Hey everyone,

First time using PVE and loving it so far. I've created a Home Assistant VM and managed to add an additional 64GB storage drive to the PVE environment using a Synology iSCSI target so pretty chuffed so far :p. Questions are:

  1. What are the steps available to make the iSCSI drive available to the Home Assistant instance for backup as I'm only seeing the local option at the moment?
  2. I understand that I cannot create snapshots to that iSCSI target. Is that true?
  3. If 2 is true, is it possible to transfer a local snapshot to that iSCSI target?
