Local-lvm (storage) and VM format

There is a way to export disk of a powered on VM.
- backup the VM (snapshot mode), no compression.
- go under right dir: cd /mnt/pve/backup
- extract the dump: vma extract vzdump-qemu-720-2016_09_14-11_22_20.vma target-dir
then you will get the raw disk and do whatever you want.
