Not at this moment, and this is not planned for the future, afaik. Did you play with the other SDK examples etc suggested during this thread? May I suggest that this is best done as a plugin/contribution to a backup solution, not standalone. I guess most sites with more than a few hosts use some such solution - FOSS (amanda/bacula/backuppc/etc) or proprietary (netbackup/backupexec/acronis/etc) - and backup of VMs (ovirt or other) should be handled in this scope. Searching the net I manage to find  and , which might be what you want. Note that I never tried any of them myself.  https://github.com/ovirt-china/vm-backup-scheduler  https://github.com/wefixit-AT/oVirtBackup Best, > > >> >> ---8<--- >> #!/usr/bin/python >> >> from ovirtsdk.api import API >> from ovirtsdk.xml import params >> >> # Connect to the server: >> api = API( >> url="https://engine.example.com/ovirt-engine/api", >> username="admin@internal", >> password="******", >> ca_file="/etc/pki/ovirt-engine/ca.pem", >> debug=False >> ) >> >> # Find the VM: >> vm = api.vms.get(name="myvm") >> >> # Print the id: >> print(vm.get_id()) >> >> # Disconnect: >> api.disconnect() >> --->8--- >> > > Many thanks for the above script.
