Description of problem:
A customer would like the ability to specify the name of the snapshots created by the snap_scheduler.py script. Currently, the script is run like this:
# snap_scheduler.py add "Job Name" "Schedule" "Volume Name"
The customer suggests a syntax such as this:
# snap_scheduler.py add "Job Name" "Schedule" "Volume Name" "Snapshot Name"
The customer also suggested preventing the time stamp from being added to the name:
# snap_scheduler.py add "Job Name" "Schedule" "Volume Name" "Snapshot Name" no-timestamp
The customer wants control over the name of the snapshots to make identifying them easier for scripts that mount the snapshots.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
