[SOLVED] rbd renaming does not reflect in GUI


Active Member

On proxmox 7.0-11, I've encountered this situation :

I renamed the disk of a vm : "rbd -p ssdpool mv vm-120-disk-1 vm-120-disk-0"
Then this does not reflect on the GUI (obviously as it does not know), and I cannot change this via the GUI :
Is there a workaround ?
Why I'm not able to select another disk ?

Thanks for the help
This is not supported over the web-interface.
You need to edit that in the config in /etc/pve/nodes/NODE/qemu-server/VMID.conf.
One could also use qm set, but you need to pass the whole drive option config line there, and for just changing the 1 to a 0 directly editing the config can be quicker.
