Can anybody confirm the safety of LVM snapshot backout (not a backup
-- but similar to snapshot restore) for a VM?

I understand that there is a step for restart of the CM and not live migration.

Will any thing of rsync will help considering a usage of DD on various
VM file formnats and various *visors(s)?

Or is there a suggested (best practices) way of coelsing VMs snapshots
and and possibily running a particular snapshot being coelesed?
