save vm state
Pauses the CPU state of a guest virtual machine (VM), saves the state to a file, and then moves the VM to "shut-off" state to free resources.
|vm||Specifies a virtual machine.|
|vm_name||Specifies the virtual machine name.|
|state||Specifies saving the running CPU state to persist across switch reboots.|
The saved state persists across switch reboots and virtMgr process restarts. The next time the VM is started, either by explicit start vm vm_name command or by autostart (enable vm vm_name autostart), the saved CPU state is restored.
A suspended VM (suspend vm vm_name) can be saved. In this case, it is returned to a suspended state after the next time it is started, and requires an explicit resume ( resume vm vm_name) to continue processing.
You cannot apply this command to a VM with Integrated Application Hosting (IAH) dedicated ports attached.
The following example saves the vm "vm1" preserving the state:
# save vm vm1 state
This command was first available in ExtremeXOS 30.7.
This command is available on all platforms that support the Integrated Application Hosting (IAH) feature and have a Core or Premier license installed. For a list of platforms that support the IAH feature and for information about licenses, see the Switch Engine 32.2 Feature License Requirements .
