Hello everyone,

I am not sure if this has already been discussed.
Basically right now I can migrate a VM from one storage to another with just a 
reboot + a few seconds, regardless of the VDI size. (I can give details if it's 
Everything is done in background and I would like to have some sort of VDI-copy 
in SMAPI that will allow me to do whatever I want using api calls like 
VDI-snapshot that allows me to actually create the snapshot a.s.o.
I would also like to know if there are any plans to allow a VDI switch while 
that VDI is in use or at least to avoid a full reboot. 
What I am trying to achieve is live migration of a VM from one storage to 
another which shouldn't be that hard to do.

Best regards,
Tomoiaga Cristian
