#58 closed enhancement (wontfix)

autoinstaller use lvcreate --snapshot for speed

The current autoinstaller uses dd to copy the old image to a new one. This takes 60-120 seconds in recent testing (I guess load's increased since my 20-25 second measurements in November.) It might be cool to use lvcreate --snapshot to make a copy-on-write copy of the golden image, so as to get the user going faster.

Turns out snapshots aren't supported on clustering LVM, which is what we're using now to support multiple hosts.
