Let's close this.  libguestfs doesn't use snapshot=on any longer.

** Changed in: qemu

  snapshot=on fails with non file-based storage

Status in QEMU:

Bug description:
  The snapshot=on option doesn't work with an nbd block device:

  /usr/bin/qemu-system-x86_64 \
      -device virtio-scsi-pci,id=scsi \
      -drive file=nbd:localhost:61930,snapshot=on,format=raw,id=hd0,if=none \
      -device scsi-hd,drive=hd0 \

  gives the error:

  qemu-system-x86_64: -drive
  file=nbd:localhost:61930,snapshot=on,format=raw,id=hd0,if=none: could
  not open disk image nbd:localhost:61930: No such file or directory

  If you remove the snapshot=on flag, it works (although that of course
  means that the block device is writable which we don't want).

  Previously reported here:


  and I can confirm this still happens in qemu 1.4.0.
