Hello !

I'm looking for a proper way of handling snapshots with VMware. As transfers between nova and glance are very very long (and even times out), I wanted to try Instance run from image, stored on a cinder volume. And then I see that :

  1. snapshots can not be created if the volume is in-use.
  2. I can't delete the snapshot created in error state without changing its state to available AND the state of the parent volume. I use Liberty. How do you do snapshots with VMware ? 3.If it's like with KVM, rebuild an instance does use the snapshot but the volume itself.

Is someone using snapshots with VMware in a usable way ?
