So I successfully upgraded my engine from 4.06 to 4.1.1 with no major issues. A nice thing I noticed was that my custom CA certificate for https on the admin and user portals wasn’t clobbered by setup. I did have to restore my custom settings for ISO uploader, log collector, and websocket

I don’t know of a function built into oVirt for scheduling snapshots. If you don’t already you may want to setup an export domain (NFS based), on separate storage. Just a reminder: snapshots are not backups and they should only be kept temporarily. We use this tool for backups:
