hi all,

i have pve installed on a nvme 1tb drive but its only seeing 94gig (i show on the web gui and terminal)

/dev/mapper/pve-root 94G 15G 75G 16% /

but when i do an fdisk -l i see the 1tb drive

Device Start End Sectors Size Type
/dev/nvme0n1p1 34 2047 2014 1007K BIOS boot
/dev/nvme0n1p2 2048 2099199 2097152 1G EFI System
/dev/nvme0n1p3 2099200 1953525134 1951425935 930.5G Linux LVM

so how can i get pve to see it as i want to use it for creating vms

Jup, "local-lvm" is for VMs/LXCs, "local" for ISOs, LXC templates, Snippets and backups (but don't use this...stupid idea to have your backups on the same SSD as your VMs/LXCs). And "local" is sharing the space with your OS.
