[libvirt-users] failed to pivot job for disk vdc

I did a virsh snapshot-create-as --domain meta sn1 --diskspec
 vda,file=/var/lib/libvirt/images/meta-sn1.qcow2 --disk-only
 --atomic --no-metadata

Then I successfully blockcommitted 2 disks:
virsh blockcommit meta vda --active --verbose --pivot
virsh blockcommit meta vdb --active --verbose --pivot

But when doing
virsh blockcommit meta vdc --active --verbose --pivot
I got:
Block commit: [100 %]error: failed to pivot job for disk vdc
error: block copy still active: disk 'vdc' not ready for pivot yet
Domain snapshot sn1 created

And now it looks like this:
virsh domblklist meta
Target     Source
vda        /var/lib/libvirt/images/meta.qcow2
vdb        /var/lib/libvirt/images/meta-home.qcow2
vdc        /var/lib/libvirt/images/meta-pgsql.sn1

How do I make vdc to be the initial disk, not the snapshot one?
