Re: [libvirt] Is there an API for clone?



Hi lancer,
As Osier said, libvirt hasn't a independent API for cloning an
existing guest, instead of using virStorageVolGetXMLDesc API to 
get a guest volume xml description and then calling  
virStorageVolCreateXMLFrom API to clone a new volume.

For python-virtinst component, you may use virt-clone to implement
this, for libvirt component, you may directly use python binding
API or virsh tool 'vol-clone' to implement it.

I hope it's helpful for you.

Hi, guys 

I know there is a command "virt-clone", but I couldn't find the equivalent API here : http://libvirt.org/html/libvirt-libvirt.html 
So, is there an API to clone an existing VM or not? 

Thank you!
