Hi. My distro is NixOS 20.09 using lxd 4.5 and lxc 4.0.4. Basically I would like to use LVM as a storage backend.
I have a thin storage pool configured:

mkfs.ext4 successfully in my terminal using the same arguments as above.
A similar failure to run
mkfs.ext4 also occurs if I try to move or copy a container from my default storage to the
