comment Mount VM filesystem on host
just keep in mind, that the nbd module is probably going to become deprecated at some point, and you're better off using libvirt's libguestfs instead

Case 1: there might in fact be a solution through virsh, but it will be simple orchestration of the same solution. Case 2: it's not going back/forth on reverts, it's basically branching out. I'll add the solution in the answer

comment State of VM after 'virsh save'
In Windows you have VSS taking care of quiescing per app, in Linux, everything is separate, so you need to use qemu-ga with hooks into whatever software you have. fsfreeze is one thing, mysqldump is another example. In short, you need to take care of the apps you have in place via an in-guest agent, like qemu-ga.

So you want to dump all data in snap3, but not move the VM back to using snap2? Then before step 3, take a new snap3

comment How to configure and use qemu-guest-agent in Ubuntu 12.04? My main aim is to get the IP address of guest VM from Host machine
the guest agent can be contacted via the monitor commands, all the commands are prefixed with guest-. Not sure abut the IP, in oVirt it's done by another agent
