Hello,

sorry if this is a FAQ: Is it possible to include the RAM with the vzdump command when backing up VM snapshots ?

Thanks

Stefan
 
No and you don't backup VM snapshots, you backup the disk and therefore there is no RAM included.
I guess it's a RBD snapshot, in any case it is a disk snapshot:

man vzdump ... --mode <snapshot | stop | suspend> (default = snapshot) ...

Is there another possibility to get the RAM included, without vzdump ?

vzdump snapshot is different from a storage snapshot and cannot created manually, but only by running vzdump.
Sorry, I don't understand this answer.

No. And again, you aren't backuping snapshots nor will the backup include any snapshots. When creating backups using the "snapshot-mode" a temporary snapshot will be created, and after the backup deleted, which has nothing to do with your normal snapshots.
