Hi All, I have created a bash script that uses curl and the REST API based on the docs that I could find.
I have the script working all the way up until the VM-ToBeBackedUp-Disk is attached to the VM-RunningTheBackupScript with the mention of the Snapshot. Example: <disk_attachment> <disk id="33b533f8-13b1-4cc1-8091-31b07913b32a"> <snapshot id="34709147-4b0c-4684-b3d9-f4892873f36f²/> </disk> <bootable>false</bootable> <interface>virtio</interface> </disk_attachment> Posted to : https://-myFQDN-/ovirt-engine/api/vms/-UUID-OF-VM-RunningTheBackupScript/dis kattachments/ The above results in an attached disk to my VM-RunningTheBackupScript. The question I have is how to I image that disk from the VM-RunningTheBackupScript? The VM-RunningTheBackupScript is running Debian8 and that VM cannot see the attached disk as it is Inactive. I have reviewed many of the older scripts out there and it looks trivial, however everything I have tried has no joy ;/ If anyone on the list knows of the required magic, please advise ;) * If I have to go to using python etc, I will, but trying to avoid it if possible. Either way, I need some examples of how to proceed.
