we are on OVirt 4.0.4. As explained the situation is as follows:

- On Disk we have the base image and the delata qcow2 file
- Qemu runs only on the base image
- The snapshot in Qemu is tagged as illegal

So you say: "Just retry a live merge and everything will cleanup."
Did I get it right?

Hi Markus,

What's the version that you are using?
In oVirt 3.6.6, illegal snapshots could be removed by retrying to live merge 
them again. Assuming the previous live merge of the snapshot successfully 
completed but the engine failed to get the result, the second live merge should 
do the necessary cleanups at the engine side. See 

Hope this helps,

Do you have some tip for me?
