I have Ubuntu 12.04 and VirtualBox 4.1.12. All manuals and help documents refer to Snapshot tab in top right corner of Virtualbox manager. But I have no idea where can I find it. Screenshot is attached.
Does anybody know anyting about how can I get acces to Snapshot manager tab? (Take a snapshot I can when machine is running).
We've been using Win2008R2's AD Snapshot feature to perform a nightly backup of our AD domain. I'm trying to figure out the steps that I need to run through to use one of these nightly backups to restore our AD domain on a 2nd server.
These are the commands we used to backup the AD DOM:
Our mysql ibdata1 file was deleted earlier today. This wasn't noticed until mysqld was restarted and there was no data in the tables. The machine is a CentOs VM in Xenserver. At this point a snapshot was taken. Then the mysql database was dropped and restored from a backup.
I'm trying to use Eric Hammond's ec2-consistent-snapshot utility on a dedicated mysql server.
I've created an IAM user and attached a power user permission policy (using the AWS console).
On a 32bit Ubuntu 10.10 ec2 instance and an XFS volume, I have installed ec2-consistent-snapshot following these instructions : http://alestic.com/mt/mt-search.cgi?blog_id=1&tag=ec2-consistent-snapshot&
I am building fedora live images and they use dm-snapshot to make root read-write. The problem I've noticed with this is that either the space allocated for the snapshot is inadequate, or it is generally unstable. My snapshot device is 1048576 512-byte or 512MB.
There's a command in the AWS EC2 API called ec2-register or ec2reg which has an argument -s for snapshot ID. You are able to create an image from a snapshot. I'd like to be able to do this in Python (currently using boto), but it doesn't look like it's built in functionality within boto yet. Is there still a way using boto to create an image from a snapshot id?
