Re: [libvirt] [libvirt-glib] [PATCH 3/4] GVirDomainSnapshot: Add _set_config

Thanks for your response. I just wanted to know is there any way to fix this issue. Please provide me with the command that will help me to create "Clone" of VM running on ESXi also if possible also share the way to create "Template" of the VM running on ESXi.
It would be easier if we could manager ESXi from "Virtual Machine Manager".

Hmm at this point I'd error out if the name is different. If people complain about this, or if this is too limiting, then we can reconsider with clear use cases to decide how this should behave. How does that sound?
