Hello All, I am new to Proxmox VE, I am trying to import a Linux KVM based VM with a qcow2 disk file, however I cannot find the documented steps on how to import it. I have tried reading the help file, but I dont understand how to use it, could you please assist me.

just create a virtual disk the idendictal size, remove it (on filesystem), and move the disk you want to import to the original location.
