I have some problems.
My CT101 with home assistant can not make a snapshot? I do not know the reason, so farm I know I did not change something.
What I notice is that my CT volume is at this moment on my NAS. Strange why is this. Has this something to do with my Snapshot problem.? I am not a expert so please do be angry if I do not understand your answers!!
PVE relies on the snapshot capabilities of the storage the virtual disk is stored on or in the snapshot capabilities of the qcow2 format in case the storage doesn't support snapshots. My guess would be that you are maybe using a "raw" format disk on a NFS/SMB share, so you neither get the snapshot capabilities of the storage nor the qcow2 format, so it's impossible.
You are possibly wright... my question is, how is this changed this CT101 is running a year. And I never had this issue. Can I reverse this, by copy this CT volume to a local drive. My NAS turn off at the night. How should I do this action. I only use this NAS for system backups. I get also this message "The current guest configuration does not support taking new snapshots"
