At work we use XenServer to administrate all the VM's. Now I wrote a script which enables Linux machines quiesced support. The script works absolutely fine. It activates if someone triggers a quiesced snapshot. Now here's the big question: Do the protection policies support creating quiesced snapshots ?

Well I found out what I had to do:

I had to add some python code to xcp-storage-managers/drivers/vmpr to check if the VM supports quiesce if it does then it should create a quiesce snapshot else it should do a normal snapshot.
