Comment 11 Alona Kaplan 2012-07-30 10:49:54 EDT
The backend command checks if the network name on the nic (we want to switch rhevm to) is not null (or empty).
As the network name is null the canDoAction fails.
This is a wrong check cause the network name of the nic will always be null (or empty). If there was a network on the nic we won't be able to move the rhevm network to it.
