Thread-topic: Questions about the api
Hello everyone,

I am writing a SR for Nexenta since I haven't found one and zfs seems pretty 
good until now.
My questions are more related to missing(?) api calls.
I need to know if I can set the following fields in a VDI for example:

Is-a-snapshot - there is a get_is_a_snapshot call but not a set_is_a_snapshot. 
Same for snapshot-of. Think it's usefull just in case I vdi-forget the snapshot 
and re introduce it with a scan or in other situations.
parent - there is a get_parent but not a set_parent call, this would be nice.

Of course I can use sm-config for example, to set a parent but still, since the 
field is there I would like to set it myself.

Thank you!
Tomoiaga Cristian
