I have a libvirt guest that has 2 drives:

  1. QCOW2 image
  2. RAW access to a whole physical drive.

From time to time I wish to take a snapshot of the QCOW2 image so I could easily revert if I chose to, virt manager has the snapshot button greyed out and shows this:

Snapshots are only supported if all writeable disk images allocated to the guest are QCOW2 format

Is there a way to tell it to ignore the physical drive (I don't want to snapshot it anyway) and snapshot just the QCOW2 image?
