Summary

Until oVirt 3.5 it was possible to copy only the disks attached to a template and only to a different storage domain. This RFE is about letting to copy also the VM and floating disks to the same or different storage domain.

Current status

  • Target Release: 3.6
  • Status: Done

Proposal

  • Enable to copy the VM and floating disks
  • Enable to change the alias of the copied disk
  • Enable to copy the disk also to the same storage domain

REST API

Send a POST request to the url: /api/disks//copy

<action>
    <storage_domain id="14e6e9f3-9fe9-493b-b9ba-793cb441f9ad" />
    <disk>
        <alias>newDiskAlias</alias>
    </disk>
</action>

If the <disk><alias> is omitted, the same alias as the original disk will be used.
