Backup a VM

Creates a ZFS snapshot and sends it to to LeoFS as a backup. Both incremental and full backups can be created. If a incremental backup is done the parent must be local.

In incremental backup here means that a incremental ZFS send is done with the parent as parent.

The following files are created in LeoFS:

  • <vm-uuid>/<backup-uuid> - the gzip compressed ZFS snapshot
  • <vm-uuid>/<backup-uuid>.xml - the zone config XML file from /etc/zones/<vm-uuid>.xml
  • <vm-uuid>/<backup-uuid>.parent - UUID of the parent snapshot if this is a incremental backup.
