Re: [ovirt-users] How is everyone performing backups?

2017-10-30 Thread Wesley Stewart
Sorry yavin, hit reply on my last email instead of reply all.  You probably
just got a couple emails from me!

I used the "wefixit" in the past, but I had trouble getting this to work
since I upgraded to 4.1.6

I also just realized that I am getting a weird error when I try to clone a
snapshot (Just sent a separate email about it which some of you guys might
have seen already).  I think that might be what was causing it to fail.

On a side note, I also went ahead and install Bacchus.  I love the UI and
the interface.  I got my ovirt manager added to Bacchus and it is seeing my
VM's, but when I try to do a manual backup, the site just becomes stuck and
is "spinning".  I think my error on cloning snapshots might also be at play
here.

 I was just curious if there were any other more elegant type

 Just curious if anyone had tackled this issue.

No it will finally still be available in 4.2, sdk3 will be removed later

I also have been keeping an eye on that subject. Thanks to the oVirt

You can/should definitely install Bacchus on a separate VM and yes you will
point your Ovirt manager to Bacchus. Simply follow the instructions on
README.

Bacchus looks really interesting.  I can't quite tell does that run on top
of OVIRT, or can I install bacchus in a separate VM and point to the ovirt
server?  I might give this a try next weekend and see how well it works.

Thanks for all the responses, it is interesting to see all the different
ways people are making this happen.

2017-10-27 Thread FERNANDO FREDIANI

Thanks for that.

Does anyone know any way to backup VMs in OVF format like or even output 
to a .zip .gz, etc ? Any way a server which is not necessarily in the 
same LAN (a offsite backup storage) receive these VMs compressed in a 
single file ?


In other words any way to perform these backups where you don't 
necessarily need to use Export Domains ?

We're backing up as physical machines with agents. But we're looking around
for commercial products supporting ovirt. At the moment we know that only
