How to Take a Snapshot of a Guest VM in Oracle VM

1) Open the Oracle VM Manager CLI.

2) Find the server pool and guest VM IDs:

show ServerPool name=<Server Pool Name>

3) Find the virtual disk IDs:

show Vm id=<Guest VM ID>

4) Connect to the Oracle VM Server host.

5) Create a reflink to the vm.cfg file of the guest VM:

reflink /OVS/Repositories/<Server Pool ID>/VirtualMachines/<Guest VM ID>/vm.cfg <Reflink Name>

6) Create a reflink to each of the virtual disks:

reflink /OVS/Repositories/<Server Pool ID>/VirtualDisks/<Virtual Disk ID>.img <Reflink Name>
