Subject Re: [VOTE] 3rd round of voting for ASF 4.2.1 RC

There is definitely an issue with snapshotting for kvm. 

I've been done some tests, but not finished yet. What i've discovered is that if you take
a snapshot of a live server, the snapshot creation works perfectly well for me. The snapshot
is created and saved without an error. However, i've tried to convert the snapshot into a
template and create a new vm using this template. The snapshot to template works fine. However,
creating a vm from that template did not work. 

If I try to create a template from a stopped server directly without using the snapshot, the
vm creation from the template works perfectly well. 

I've not done much investigation, however, i've noticed that when I am doing vm creation using
snapshot and template process the database shows QCOW2 as the file format. Doing directly
via the template is showing RAW file format. I will do some more testing to verify and post
management server logs.

Can someone check KVM volume snapshots before declaring this GA? It's 
been consistently broken for me in 4.2.1-SNAPSHOT with NFS as well as 
GlusterFS shared mount point. 
It was working in 4.2.0 afaicr. 

I've sent several emails about this as well as bothering people in
