TASK ERROR: unable to create VM 100 - lvcreate 'pve/vm-100-disk-0'


Jun 30, 2019
I've set the configuration to create a VM after I've extended the pve/data with a 2nd drive

root@pvps:~# lvs -a

  /dev/sdb1  pve lvm2 a--  931.51g    0

However when I submit the request to create the VM I get an error message:

Using default stripesize 64.00 KiB.
TASK ERROR: unable to create VM 100 - lvcreate 'pve/vm-100-disk-0' error: Cannot use thin pool pve/data with transaction id 2 for thin volumes. Expected transaction id 0.

Any suggestions please.
