Description of problem:
It is tedious to create an export or a template from a running machine:
VM->snapshot->clone->template(->remove clone)(->remove snapshot)
VM->snapshot->clone->export(->remove clone)(->remove snapshot)
Having a single rhevm-shell command and web-gui operation to perform these would be very useful
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
Multiple steps needed to create an export/template of a running VM
Single step option (context menu in admin web ui + CLI command)
we have an implementation for Down VMs
Operating on running VMs is bit more complex and not part of the changes which will get in 3.6 at this point.
Do you want to keep this RFE still open since the request was explicitly about running VMs or is it good enough?
Yes, we are aware that creating templates and exporting powered off VMs is exists. In fact it is the only way at the moment. This RFE was there to specifically add support of doing these actions on running Vms.
There is already a way to do this described in #0 however it is too complicated. Please keep this request open.
thank you for confirmation.
So at this point I can confirm we will have an improvement in 3.6 for the down VMs only (single step)
adding exception request to try to address the remaining "bug" that it doesn't work on running VMs
Verified on rhevm-3.6.2-0.1.el6.noarch.
1. Created a vm (from some template).
2. started vm.
3. Created snapshot.
4. created template from snapshot.
works the same with non live snapshot.
works the same when creating template subversion.
