Target version:-


Snapshots created from VM menu, snapshot tab should be persistent across VM migrations, stops or reboots. Imagine situation that snapshot is made for a quick rollback while I deploy some new features to application. Now when the machine is stoppped or migrated in case of some problem I will lose possibility to rollback.

Some versions of libvirt/qemu do not support this feature, it seems that current one may have address this. I'll keep this open to further investigate this and update the core behavior if needed.

We heavily use snapshots during development and testing, as the infrastructure admin, I sometime want to suspend users VMs to operate on a node, but as snapshots are delete I can't.
