In RHEV 3.6, it is now possible to create a disk as a clone of another disk, a function that was previously only available when working with templates.

Assigning to Byron for review.

Byron, this feature allows users to make a copy of an existing disk by selecting the disk in the Disks tab, then clicking 'Copy'. This functionality must be documented in the Virtual Machine Management Guide.
