Subject snapshots in kvm
Date Wed, 14 Aug 2013 11:39:23 GMT

This regarding snapshot process in KVM. Does libvirt allow creating snapshots on two disks
of a vm at the same time?
I have deployed a vm with root and data disk. Configured recurring snapshot policies on both
root disk and data disk and snapshot process triggered on both the disks with difference of
1 sec.
But one of them failed with libvirt exception:
Failed to manage snapshot: org.libvirt.LibvirtException: Timed out during operation: cannot
acquire state change lock

Is this expected? If yes could you specify the reason for my understanding?
