We needed a feature where we could suspend a running VM without loosing the snapshot files. For this we needed to vacate the job (vm universe) and then hold it instead of re-starting it somewhere else.
We achieved it by setting Job Requirements to FALSE before vacating the job.
Is any one aware of any problems with this approach?
Vacate will transfer the modified files to the spool directory, while hold will not. That's why we went for this approach.
Commands used are:
1. condor_qedit <jobid> Requirements FALSE
2. condor_vacate_job <jobid>
