We have Nutanix AHV clusters and need to automate VMs snapshot process with Ansible. It require to take snapshot of VM before certain maintenance activity and restore the same in case of rollback. Need to understand considerations and steps involved in it.

@Jitendra Ingale Hi…  I am not sure regarding doing snapshots of VM via Ansible, but here is our developer site that has several github links to different  use cases.  You might be able to leverage some of that code.

Thanks @Michael.Manuele 

Can you give me commands to create and restore VM snapshot on Nutanix ?

I will further try to integrate with Ansible.

Folks,

 

Any update on this ?

 

I am basically looking for commands to create/restore VM snapshot on Nutanix. I want to execute it from bash scripts.

Hi

using bash, you have 2 options : ssh to your cvm to run acli commands, or curl/jq to call the REST API. But I’d use Ansible to call the API, if I were you :)
