Description Jens Petersen 2009-05-14 21:26:12 EDT
Description of problem: Not infrequently there is a problem setting up a guest and this leaves an empty unused guest image lying around. I think it would be better for virt-manager to ask if it is ok to reuse an ununsed guest image rather than always just create a new one. Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable): virt-manager-0.7.0-4.fc11 How reproducible: everytime Steps to Reproduce: 1. install "myguest" from autofs'ed net iso image 2. retry 3. retry Actual results: 1. images/myguest.img 2. images/myguest-1.img 3. images/myguest-2.img Expected results: 1. no images/myguest.img 2. or maybe "There is already an myguest.img which is not owned by any guests. Would you like to use it?" 3. ditto Additional info: Currently new v-m will waste a lot of diskspace with orphaned disk images from aborted guests.
Comment 1 Cole Robinson 2010-03-03 18:54:04 EST
I went with your #2 suggestion, offer to reuse and existing disk image if no other guests are using it: http://hg.fedorahosted.org/hg/virt-manager/rev/a42fc22785af Probably also a good idea to offer a way to clean up created storage, but haven't messed with that yet.
