Add 'Create Snapshot' to VMs main-tab action panel
(and as a context-menu item when selecting a VM).
Updated "Creating a Snapshot of a Virtual Machine" [7511-550078] in the Administration Guide as follows:
* Removed screenshots referring to the prior procedure of creating snapshots using a button in the side-pane of the details pane for the selected VM.
* Changed Step 2. so that it would refer to the new Create Snapshot button.
Updated Revision History [21114-550084].
Power User Portal Guide: Not a bug; no changes required at this time.
See Comment 1 above for changes.
Moving to ON_QA.
*** Bug 978694 has been marked as a duplicate of this bug. ***
all looks good, except 8.9.2. (Using a Snapshot to Restore a Virtual Machine):
5. Start the virtual machine and it will run with the disk image of the snapshot.
6. Click Commit to permanently restore the virtual machine to the condition of the snapshot. Any subsequent snapshots are erased.
The 'Commit' (and 'Undo') buttons are not available unless the vm is shut down. Is this implied, or should it be a specified step?
Customers may want to 'Preview' their VM to check, then just click 'Commit' to keep running, without restarting again...
