RFE: Provide the ability to save/restore VMs in Conga
Last modified: 2009-04-16 18:55:00 EDT
Description of problem:
I am running VMs as services in a clustered environment. When I "xm save testVM"
from the node it's running on, that VM is saved then stopped. Cluster Suite
eventually realizes the VM is no longer running and re-starts the VM on another
node (my cluster policy is to relocate). I would like to see Conga able to
save/restore a VM. This would require being able to disable/enable the
saved/restored VM service within Cluster Suite. Currently my "work-around" is to
do an "xm save testVM", wait until that is finished and then "stop this service"
in Conga. Of course, the service is already stopped, but Conga seems to handle
that OK. Unfortunately, the VM service is put in to a disabled state. When I "xm
restore testVM" the VM is started back up, but Cluster Suite still shows
disabled. (lon tells me that rgmanager 2.0.29 will allow me to re-enable the VM
without causing a reboot, so I'll test that)) The end result I desire is to be
able to save a VM and keep it from restarting until I am ready to restore the VM
from the save file at a later date.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. create a VM as a service in a clustered environment with a restar failover policy
2. xm save the VM, the VM domU is destroyed after the save
3. wait until cluster suite realizes the VM has disappeared, the VM restarts.
Cluster Suite will restart the "failed" VM.
I'd love! if Conga could save then disable the VM so I can restore it at a later
Conga performs all VM operations via rgmanager (clusvcadm), so support would be
