Alexander which version of cockpit are you using? The feature to detach disks was introduced in cockpit 179. Also it's only available if libvirt-dbus package is installed.
Thanks for the pointer, I had been unable to find anything in the beta documentation regarding the need for that specific package. I will write an article for the knowledge base.
After installation, I tested the feature and it works.
@Alexander So in rhel-beta there is cockpit-machines-180 and at that version we were not requiring the libvirt-dbus package. From 181 release and afterwards it's a required dependency for cockpit-machines, so user should not be bothered to installed it separately.
Thanks for that, no need for an additional knowledge article then.
