According to what I found in your web site, VZdump will not work for KVM
virtual machines. So how do I clone one?
" VZDump is a utility to make consistent snapshots of running OpenVZ VEs. It
basically creates a tar archive of the VE private area, which also includes
the VE configuration files. 
There are several ways to provide consistency: 
stop the VE during backup (very long downtime) 
use rsync and suspend/resume (minimal downtime)"

We are currently working on this. As soon as possible, maybe a week or two.
