Description Matt Reid 2017-01-16 22:01:08 UTC
Description of problem:
One of the validation checks that we run on RHV storage domains can return this message:
"Storage domain my_storage is not empty. This could cause deployment problems."

How likely is it to cause deployment problems? Is it recommended to continue or should they stop everything and go figure out how to delete contents in that folder? Why is it important for it to be empty, what are we worried about?

If that linked to an article or the section in the docs where we had more context, that might help. It's styled as a warning, and you can proceed despite it, but if it often causes issues, maybe we should word it more strongly and change it to an error.

Any chance we can add more context and direction to that message to make it less ominous while including no recommendation?
