PVE on EXT4 local can't start image or lxc

I installed PVE on a single disk system, using EXT4. I have a local, but no local-zfs. Local is set to "VZDump backup file, ISO image, Container template", where local-zfs on other systems is set to have "Disk Images, Containers".

This one PVE doesn't have local-zfs, so no place to put an image or container? Help?
You can simply set "Disk Images" And " Containers" capabilities for storage 'local' - Its a configuration option.

Also, if you use our installer, it will set up and lvm-thin based storage called 'local-lvm' (which support snapshots).
