Hi all,

I've encountered an issue when I try to take a snapshot of a VM or CT where the disk as moved to a shared NFS storage.
In the Snapshot section there is a warnings:
The current guest configuration does not support taking new snapshots
A screenshot below:

This is the root disk information:

The above information screenshots are related to a CT, while for a VM where I moved the disk to the shared storage I still can take snapshots.
Could you please support on this?
