See https://bugzilla.proxmox.com/show_bug.cgi?id=57

As a workaround, you need to add the disk in the /etc/pve/qemu-server/VMID.conf manually.

If you define the disk as unused in the config it will show also up on the gui and you can add it with the needed options.

> unused0: lvm-ims:vm-102-disk-2
> unused1: lvm-ims:vm-102-disk-3
