Scripting snapshots and backups


Nov 7, 2017

I was looking to do some snapshots and backups programatically via scripts around qm/pvesm, however can't seem to find the said feature in the man pages. Is there another utility I should be looking at?
I found out the utility for backups, it's called vzdump right?
How do I script creating a backup schedule?

Realised "qm" can indeed manage snapshots. Double checked the help options and there it was..
