VM Snapshot UI with virt-manager
Last modified: 2013-12-18 09:01:06 EST
This is a tracking bug for Change: VM Snapshot UI with virt-manager
For more details, see: http://fedoraproject.org//wiki/Changes/Virt_Manager_Snapshots
Add UI to virt-manager for easily managing VM snapshots.
Change is mostly complete in F20/Rawhide, setting to MODIFIED.
I've got Fedora 20 Alpha with virt-manager 0.10.0-2.git948b5359.fc20 installed. I'm looking for a button / link / menu item for managing snapshots and I don't see anything. Is this still to be implemented? If not, how do I take a snapshot in virt-manager? I'm currently doing them from the command line (on qcow2 disks) using qemu-img.

It's hidden by default at the moment, behind the cli option --experimental-snapshot-ui . Upstream has all this stuff in much better shape and turned on by default, I'll be doing a new build this week. You'll see a new icon in the toolbar of the VM graphics/details window, that's how you access the UI
