Hello, I got a question here. When we create consistent active external snapshots with flag “VIR_DOMAIN_SNAPSHOT_CREATE_QUIESCE” , the qemuDomainSnapshotFSFreeze will be called firstly to freeze all filesystems in vm, and then create snapshots. For windows vm, freezing filesystems used by vss service. If IO pressure in vm is too big or internal error happened in vss , freezing filesytems will failed , and qemuDomainSnapshotFSFreeze returns 0 which meaning that no filesystems are frozen. In the function qemuDomainSnapshotCreateActiveExternal, libvirt creates external snapshots all the same in such a situation that qemuDomainSnapshotFSFreeze returns 0, but the created snapshots are not consistent snapshots in such a situation . So shouldn't we abandon creating snapshots and goto cleanup in the situation that qemuDomainSnapshotFSFreeze returns 0?
Yeah, there should probably be a check that the number of frozen filesystems is the same as requested and error out if it's lower. Martin
