RHEV 3.5 beta1: live snapshot feature inactive

Latest response

i have updated our test installation to the most recent rhev 3.5 beta 1.

As i understand this version does not yet support RHEV H Hypervisors. So i went on and installed an RHEL 6.5 based one and the system was
added to the RHEV Management suite. My main problem is now that the Host does not support the live snapshot feature and im unable to find out why. The qemu-kvm-rhev packages and libvirt packages are even newer than on the RHEV H Hypervisor which supported it. Any idea how to figure out why vdsClient capabilities show me now live snapshot support?

Here are the package versions:

qemu-img-rhev-0.12.1.2-2.445.el6.x86_64
gpxe-roms-qemu-0.9.7-6.12.el6.noarch
qemu-kvm-rhev-0.12.1.2-2.445.el6.x86_64
qemu-kvm-rhev-tools-0.12.1.2-2.445.el6.x86_
libvirt-client-0.10.2-46.el6.x86_64
libvirt-lock-sanlock-0.10.2-46.el6.x86_64
libvirt-python-0.10.2-46.el6.x86_64
libvirt-0.10.2-46.el6.x86_64

vdsclient output:

In order to properly test a host with RHEV 3.5 Beta you should install RHEL 6.6 and subscribe the system to the 'rhel-x86_64-rhev-mgmt-agent-6-beta' channel. The package versions you have listed appear to be from the 'rhel-x86_64-rhev-mgmt-agent-6' channel that is used with RHEV 3.4.z.
