I'm afraid this is somewhere in LINSTOR. The proxmox plugin just
generates snapshots (or deletes them, but never restores them). The
restore is then done by linstor (on the cli, no support in proxmox).
That must happen in combination with the migration and LINSTOR mixing up
old/new volume names.
Robert, for reference:
boring SN name generation (the "snap" part is some user input):
and SN creation:
All of that looks too boring as that the plugin could have messed up
