On my virtualization system there are some VMs. One of them was aimed for testing some services on it. So in this case i need to have the first state of that VM.
I search for solution too much and find the snapshot as a good approach for it. Then search deeper and found out that the virsh can do it form by snapshot-create. but beside it, there is an other command, snapshot-create-as.
The server runs the following operations often. It takes a snapshot of a logical volume, then backup up the content to the remote backup server. It is possible that multiple backups and transfer happen at the same time. Will too many rsync sessions and mounted snapshot volumes be a problem?
repo init -u $url && repo sync
.. committed some local changes and saved a snapshot
repo manifest -o ~/snapshot.xml -r
Will another 'repo sync' wipe the snapshot references from our tree or can we still revert to that snapshot later on?
Where to find reference to the snapshot in the local tree?
