This says that you want to create an external snapshot...

But this did not request the --disk-only flag, and was not executed
with (unreleased) libvirt 1.0.1.  Older libvirt doesn't support
external snapshots without the --disk-only flag (but the next
release will; assuming that you have new enough qemu).

This says your qemu is too old.  External snapshots were not possible
until upstream qemu 1.2; it is also available if you use RHEV 3.0
from Red Hat (but NOT if you use RHEL 6.3).
 
> is there anyone has the same problem with me ?
 
Yes, since you are trying code that hasn't been implemented
for the versions of software you have installed.
