[qubes-users] New qubes private storage not LVM anymore

Hi all,

for some reason my Qubes OS does create new qubes with private storage on pool “varlibqubes” instead of lvm. It was working before but i dont know the reason why the behaviour changed.

Thanks for any help.

Maybe you accidentally changed the default_pool setting?

Check `qubes-prefs`.

I’ve checked qvm-prefs and wasnt aware of qubes-prefs. Setting the default_pool parameter to lvm fixed it.

I dont remember that i changed it but i had broken SSD and as a result a broken volume group. Maybe thats the cause.

Thanks a lot.
