There is no promise, but we are not dropping it at the moment. As long it's
there, old (3.6.x) ovirt-shell should continue to work. We do not maintain
either though.
Ansible seems to be a great and powerful replacement to ovirt-shell.
Another recommendation I can give is ovirtcmd[1], though I have not tried
it myself, I've looked at the code and it looks good.

We decided to just let it stay, instead of forcing everyone to convert.
Nice to hear such a new, community is the key, and ovirt devs seem to 
remember!
Note that none of the new features since 4.0 are supported in v3 API, 
it has far fewer examples, documentation or features for the SDKs 
themselves (see[1] for example).
So does that mean v3 API will be kept far in the future? What about 
derivated tools like ovirt-shell?


From personal experience, I believe it is also easier to develop with 
the new SDKs.

SDKv3 will not be removed in 4.2.

You may want to adapt it?


Note that you can gradually move to v4. You can mix v4 API with
v3 API and convert function by function.

  * Backup step is okay, and I get a usable qcow2 image

the step 2.

 1. /Take a snapshot of the virtual machine to be backed

An other case is when the vm to backup has more than one
disk. After I tested it, I found that only one qcow2
disk is saved on the backup vm. This is really a matter
when the original vm has many disks part of lvm, it
makes the vm restoration unusable.

  * About vm restoration, it seems that you are using
the upload_disk api, so the disk is uploaded to the
pre-defined storage domain, so it is not a real vm
restoration.

Do you plan to backup and restore a full VM (disks + vm
definition) in a next release?

Re: [ovirt-users] oVirt's VM backup

2017-09-21 Thread FERNANDO FREDIANI

Is it just me just finds strange the way oVirt/RHEV does backup ?

At the present you have to snapshot the VM (fine by that), but them you 
have to clone AND export it to an Export Domain, then delete the cloned 
VM. That means three copies of the same VM somewhere.


Wouldn't it be more logical to take a snapshot, get the then read-only 
disk and export it directly from any host that can read it, and finally 
remove the snapshot ?


Why the need to clone AND export ? What is the limitation to pull this 
VM directlly from host decreasing the time it takes the overall process 
and mainly the amount of storage necessary to do this job.
Ohh and before I forget by this workflow the disks are hammered a lot 
more decreasing their lifetime and may causing performance issues mainly 
during the clone process.

Re: [ovirt-users] oVirt's VM backup

2017-09-21 Thread Nathanaël Blanchet

Hello Victor,

I have some questions about your script


Le 07/07/2017 à 23:40, Victor José Acosta Domínguez a écrit :

Hello everyone, i created a python tool to backup and restore oVirt's VMs.

Also i created a little "how to" on my blog:
http://blog.infratic.com/2017/07/create-ovirtrhevs-vm-backup/


 * Backup step is okay, and I get a usable qcow2 image of the snapshot
   vm in the backup vm. It seems to be compliant with the official
   backup API, except on the step 2.

1. /Take a snapshot of the virtual machine to be backed up - (existing
   oVirt REST API operation)/
2. /Back up the virtual machine configuration at the time of the
   snapshot (the disk configuration can be backed up as well if needed)
   - (added capability to oVirt as part of the Backup API)/

I can't see any vm configuration anywhere but only the qcow2 disk itself

1. /Attach the disk snapshots that were created in (1) to the virtual
   appliance for data backup - (added capability to oVirt as part of
   the Backup API)/
2. /
   /
3. /Detach the disk snapshots that were attached in (4) from the
   virtual appliance - (added capability to oVirt as part of the Backup
   API)/

An other case is when the vm to backup has more than one disk. After I 
tested it, I found that only one qcow2 disk is saved on the backup vm. 
This is really a matter when the original vm has many disks part of lvm, 
it makes the vm restoration unusable.


 * About vm restoration, it seems that you are using the upload_disk
   api, so the disk is uploaded to the pre-defined storage domain, so
   it is not a real vm restoration.

Do you plan to backup and restore a full VM (disks + vm definition) in a 
next release?




I hope it help someone else

Regards

Victor Acosta

Thanks for sharing, looks great !

One remark, you should choose a license for your code and add it to the
github repo. [1]
