Description of problem:

EL 6.5 with oVirt 3.5 release indicates "Live Snapshot Support: Active"

Upgrading host to EL 6.6, oVirt 3.5 now states "Live Snapshot Support: Inactive" and now unable to create live snapshots on host.

No longer able to create live snapshot on EL 6.6


Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

OS Version: RHEL - 6 - 5.el6.centos.11.2
Kernel Version: 2.6.32 - 431.29.2.el6.x86_64
KVM Version: 0.12.1.2 - 2.415.el6_5.14

#======

A non-functional EL 6.6 system module versions...

OS Version: RHEL - 6 - 6.el6.centos.12.2
Kernel Version: 2.6.32 - 504.el6.x86_64
KVM Version: 0.12.1.2 - 2.415.el6_5.14
LIBVERT Version: libvirt-0.10.2-46.el6
VDSM Version: vdsm-4.16.7-1.gitdb83943.el6

Live Snapshot Support: Inactive


How reproducible:

Check "Live Snapshot Support" on a EL 6.5 system in oVirt UI reports "Active".  Upgrade a functional EL 6.5 system to EL 6.6 system and examine the Ovirt UI for "Live Snapshot Support" and it reports "Inactive".

This may libvirt change may have broke live snapshot:

most likely it is. It seems you are not running patched libvirt.

bugged:  libvirt-0.10.2-46.el6.x86_64
patched: libvirt-0.10.2-46.el6_6.1.x86_64.rpm


 To check that, it is enough to follow these steps

1 on the hypervisor host, run

  $ virsh -r capabilities | grep -i snapshot


2 the following is output from a misbehaving libvirt:

      <disksnapshot default='off' toggle='no'/>
      <disksnapshot default='off' toggle='no'/>

3 if libvirt output does _not_ contain the 'disksnapshot' element, so if
  command as per #1 yields nothing, libvirt is patched.

4 lacking the disksnapshot reporting, vdsm assumes the live snapshot is working, so the Engine will allow the operation.

Possibly a dup of BZ 1149460
