Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 576121
Re-basing a single snapshot by 'qemu-img reebase' (reebase spelled correctly is a keyword bellowed by bugzila bots)
Last modified: 2013-02-28 23:51:51 EST
Description of problem:
We can't rebase a single snapshot.
base -> sn1
Expected behavior: after qemu-img rebase 'sn1' should contain
(base+sn1) data and shouldn't point to 'base'
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
Workaround suggested by kwolf: base -> sn1
1. Create new empty image 'new-base' similar to 'base'
2. Rebase sn1 on top of 'new-base':
qemu-img rebase -b new-base -F new-base-fmt sn1
3. Rebase unsafely sn1 on top of "":
qemu-img rebase -u -b "" sn1
4. Delete 'base' and 'new-base'
