the VM should be in image_locked state when performing offline snapshot operation
Last modified: 2016-02-10 14:13:27 EST
Description of problem:
When the VM is performing a snapshot operation and nothing else can be done, the VM should be in image_locked state
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
is20.2 / rhevm-backend-3.3.0-0.30.beta1.el6ev.noarch
Steps to Reproduce:
1. delete (create, preview, commit) a snapshot whev VM is down
VM status is down during snapshot operation
VM is in image_locked status
the removal of the lock of the vm during snapshot is since this patch (old one):
possibly the intention was that you could do other vm related operations while the snapshot is being taken. like updating the vm configuration.
As this issue is very old, i think that regardless this could be postponed to 3.4 (as changing it might add some instabiility) and then we could decide on what is the behaviour that we want here.
On second thought, the initial description of the bug is incorrect - if a VM is in image locked it cannot be RUN.
