Export VM WITH snapshots in tact


paolo nardini

Question

Hi all,

 

Does anyone know how to export/import a VM WITH snapshots in tact? I've tried exporting to XVA via the command line and also using OVA/OVF but each time I import, there are no snapshots. 

 

I'm migrating a VM from one pool to another and the only option is to import/export. I can't use the migration wizard due to incompatible hardware and xenserver versions.

 

Thanks

Hi all,

 

Thanks for your responses. I thought that it wouldn't be possible but thought I'd doublecheck. The team have been using snaps to boot into different environments for testing. 

 

Looks like I'll be exporting snaps to new VMs and they can deal from there.

 

Thanks again

FYI I exported them all to .xva's and then when I imported them they landed as templates. I ran the below two commands to convert each instance to a VM and enable boot:

 

xe vm-param-set uuid=<Template UUID> is-a-template=false

 

xe vm-reset-powerstate uuid=<Template UUID> force=true

 

Thanks
