Issue

  • Is it possible to delete snapshots on a running virtual machine in order to release some space on the related storage domain without downtime on this virtual machine?

  • Why does live snapshot deletion not work in RHEV 3.4 or earlier?

Environment

  • Red Hat Enterprise Virtualization 3.5
