Unable to create container


Jun 15, 2019

I added added a ZFS volume as a directory for storing containers for proxmox. The problem I cannot create containers on this with the default ACL settings. The error code:
Warning, had trouble writing out superblocks.
TASK ERROR: unable to create CT 107 - command 'mkfs.ext4 -O mmp -E 'root_owner=100000:100000' /storage01/CT/images/107/vm-107-disk-0.raw' failed: exit code 144

If I switch ACLs to disabled I can create it successfully. I think it can be an acl or a permission related issue. What exact acl and or permission settings should I turn on for the ZFS dataset to make it work properly?

Thanks for your help!

why don't you use a zfspool storage instead of a directory based storage on top of ZFS. You can add it under "Datacenter -> Storage -> Add -> ZFS"
