Hi all, I have ovirt 4.2.7, self-hosted on top gluster, with two servers. I have a specific VM which has encountered some snapshot issues. The engine lists 4 snapshots and when trying to delete one of them I get "General command validation failure".
The VM was being backed up periodically by a python script which was creating a snapshot -> clone -> export -> delete clone -> delete snapshot. There were times where the VM was complaining of some illegal snapshots following such backup procedures and I had to delete such illegal snapshots references from the engine DB (following some steps found online), otherwise I would not be able to start the VM if it was shut down. Seems though that this is not a clean process and leaves the underlying image of the VM in an inconsistent state in regards to its snapshots as when checking the backing chain of the image file I get: *b46d8efe-885b-4a68-94ca-e8f437566bee* (active VM)* ->* *b7673dca-6e10-4a0f-9885-1c91b86616af ->* *4f636d91-a66c-4d68-8720-d2736a3765df ->* 6826cb76-6930-4b53-a9f5-fdeb0e8012ac -> 61eea475-1135-42f4-b8d1-da6112946bac -> *604d84c3-8d5f-4bb6-a2b5-0aea79104e43 ->* 1e75898c-9790-4163-ad41-847cfe84db40 -> *cf8707f2-bf1f-4827-8dc2-d7e6ffcc3d43 ->* 3f54c98e-07ca-4810-82d8-cbf3964c7ce5 (raw image) The bold ones are the ones shown at engine GUI. The VM runs normally without issues. I was thinking if I could use qemu-img commit to consolidate and remove the snapshots that are not referenced from engine anymore. Any ideas from your side? Thanx, Alex
