I am a beginner with Proxmox VE and hope everyone can help me, thank you very much

Environment​

Proxmox VE version: 7.43
I have two physical disks, local-lvm and local-sdb1, the latter should be manually created, but I forgot how I did it exactly

Requirements​

Because local-lvm lacks space, virtual machines cannot start and IO errors occur, I deleted some snapshots, now they can start, but I want to move the virtual machine from local-lvm to local-sdb1

Problem​


When I move VM B to the new location through the web interface, I encountered the error unable to parse volume ID '/dev/sdb1' (500), VM B was produced by linking cloning, but VM A is the product of full cloning, so he can complete this operation very smoothly, I don't know where the problem is, I can't find the answer through Google

sdb1 cannot be passthrough in your .conf because it's already defined as a directory datastore "local-sdb1"
if it's a datastore, virtual disks are stored in sub folder of /mnt/sdb1
