Thanks Cole, and thanks also to Kashyap for the useful link.

But, for me, traslate this info into a procedure (shell script) for do
an hot backup/restore of my virtual machine is difficult.

I intend use external snapshot for transfer, without poweroff, a guest
from host to bk-host.

With external snapshot, my idea was to transfer the base image from host
to bk-host and, at the end of copy base image, to remove the snapshot on

It's possible to do that or something like this?
there is already some scripts?

Thanks for your help ... and great work.
