I have an engine config backup and a backup of the oVirt storage
domain.

I viewed the engine backup, but the format as-is doesn't give any
obvious configuration details of the VMs at the time of the
backup.  Is the UUID as obvious as the file name of the VM's boot
volume UUID name?



I think it's the field 'vm_guid' in the table 'vm_static'.

You can restore the backup on a temp vm somewhere - make sure it has no
access to your hosts so that the engine will not start to manage them -
or just look at the db dump. The backup is a tar file, and you can look
at db dumps inside it using 'pg_restore filename | less'.


The guest UUID is configurable per VM in Edit dialog, you can use
a custom value



Thank you, I was able to get the UUID back!

[ovirt-users] Get UU

I need to create an old oVirt Windows VM.  The VM has an old licensed product 
that we can no longer get a licensed reissued for.  It looks like I need to 
feed back the original qemu UUID that was used when the VM was created.

I have an engine config backup and a backup of the oVirt storage domain.

I viewed the engine backup, but the format as-is doesn't give any obvious 
configuration details of the VMs at the time of the backup.  Is the UUID as 
obvious as the file name of the VM's boot volume UUID name?
