There do not appear to be any snapshots listed...the following command
produces no output:
proxmox7:/var/lib/vz/images/115# qemu-img snapshot -l vm-115-disk.qcow2
When viewing the info here is what I get:
proxmox7:/var/lib/vz/images/115# qemu-img info vm-115-disk.qcow2
file format: qcow2
virtual size: 8.0G (8589934592 bytes)
disk size: 137G
I will keep looking around for answers...but if anyone has any other
suggestions please let me know.
