Dear list,

	I'm trying to write a suspend/resume script for bacula to enable
	it to backup (running) virtual machine images. I'd like to be able
	to map from a fixed server name to the dynamic vm_id, but can't see
	any obvious way to do this. Any suggestions ?

	(I had hoped running "onevm list -l id,name" might give the full 
	name but it seems to be cut off at 8 characters which is a bit risky
	to match on.)
	Or perhaps the backup agent should run inside each virtual machine
	rather than backing up the vm image ?. Any advantages/disadvantages ?
