    Creating snapshots for volumes which are in use

      Hi,

       

      I'm trying to snap a volume which is attached to a running Openstack instance. The snapshot is created but gets status Error

       

      Apparently this is a limitation in VIO 4.0 where snapping of in-use volumes is not supported.

       

      I'm wondering if any one else encountered this issue or worked around it?

       

      Detaching the volume from the instance is not an option because I have an active service writing to it which I cannot shut down
