The snapshot is greyed out and I have picked the right storage and eveything?
Followed all the instructions and using the correct storage type but the snap remains greyed out?
VM OS: Windows server

If someone could point me in the right direction that would be awesome!

Happy to provide any information to help!Ada.PNG

root@mgmt:~# cat /etc/pve/storage.cfg
dir: local
path /var/lib/vz
content vztmpl,backup,iso

lvmthin: local-lvm
thinpool data
vgname pve
content rootdir,images

Am I doing something wrong?
