"You shouldn't have to create the backup volumes I think
already does the equivalent 'volutil lock ; volutil backup'. In fact it
prefers to do it that way because then it can lock all replicas
simultaneously and really get a consistent snapshot of the state of all
replicas of a volume."

Both programs actually initiate rpc-operations which result in creation
of backup volumes.

Note that in the description of the backup subsystem one talks about
"making clones" which is confusing as a "readonly clone" is a different
thing even if similar to a backup volume. Actually it is backup volumes
which are used for backups.
