The use case is to copy a volume’s backup snapshot which contains MySQL data to another host to attach it to the backed up container that was also copied over and keeps getting copied over with
lxc copy container remote:container --refresh. This would be a great help to backup containers with volumes and be able to spin them up on the backup location too.
Therefore I would like to request the
--refresh flag also for the
lxc storage volume copy command please.
lxc storage volume copy <pool>/<volume>[/<snapshot>] [<remote:>]<pool>/<volume> --refresh
Also it would be nice to have a flag with the container copying to bring over the volumes it has, of course one would have to make sure that the target storage backend and setup is the same as on the source.
