Another option is to use ManageIQ, which has support for Ansible automation
(and oVirt of course).
See the release announcement[1].

Hi Yaniv,
as the user asked for a GUI too, I think that using Ansible for oVirt
backup could be improved by an available GUI.
I have just seen that there is a sort of "survey" to see what is the
feeling/interest in having an opensource alternative for commercial Red Hat
Tower here:

https://www.ansible.com/open-tower

I just joined and who is interested could do the same.
Afaik there is currently only the limited feature Semaphore at the moment
(never tested by me, while I have some experience in using commercial
Tower):
https://github.com/ansible-semaphore/semaphore

Re: [ovirt-users] oVirt VM backups

2017-07-27 Thread FERNANDO FREDIANI
One thing that I cannot conceive when doing oVirt backups is the need to 
clone the VM in order to copy it. Why, as in VMware, isn't possible to 
just Snapshot and copy the read-only disk ?

Hi All,

For VM backups I am using some python script to automate the snapshot

trying to backups a Windows 10 VM)


I was wondering if there is there any plan to integrate VM backups in 
the GUI or what other recommended ways exist out there.


Thanx,

See https://github.com/wefixit-AT/oVirtBackup as an option.

Now that I think of this, it's probably just as easy to write as an Ansible
role and add it to https://github.com/machacekondra/ovirt-ansible-roles

If you are using Gluster, I believe
http://www.ovirt.org/develop/release-management/features/gluster/gluster-dr/
is also relevant.

Hi,

Yes, the python script is using this API.
I was thinking to have in the GUI for VM backups sth similar as the gluster
volume snapshot schedules.

Hi Abi,

Don't you want to use the backup API feature for that:
