I have a secondary VM pool for storing qubes. I need to remove it. I already moved all my qubes back to the default pool, but I can’t seem to tell Qubes to just get rid of it. “qvm-pool remove” complains that it’s still in use, even after a restart.
I tried booting from the Qubes USB installer to destroy the partition from there (I just zeroed out the first hundred megs). It worked… partially. Qubes still seems to think there’s a partition with a thin volume there. It won’t show under my attachable devices, although at least now it does show up in “ls /dev/bcache0p*”.
“qvm-pool remove” behaves the exact same way it did before I zeroed the partition so I don’t know what’s going on ._.
What do I do? I’m afraid something bad’s gonna happen after I re-arrange this disk array (it’s a RAID/bcache setup that’s getting completely re-done with new disks) if Qubes insists on getting a pool from there… and if there ends up being a partition with the same name as this one (which is very likely) then I hope Qubes doesn’t just syphon it out of me because I’m gonna need it
