Description Allie DeVolder 2013-10-03 15:14:15 UTC
1. Customer Name 
Richard Davis (PGDS Ltd)

2. What is the nature and description of the request?
Upon import of a VM from the Export storage domain, we would like to see an indicator to show which of the disks to be imported is the os (boot) disk of the virtual machine being imported. Similar to the indicator in the "Disks" tab. 
This then allows us to import the os disk on the desired storage domain. (Many people have a separate storage domain for VM os disks)
3. Why does the customer need this? (List the business requirements here)
It ensures that we import the VM's boot disk onto the correct/desired storage domain.

4. How would the customer like to achieve this? 
An "os" indicator in the VM Import screen to show which of the disks is the boot disk.

5. For each functional requirement listed in question 4, specify how Red Hat and the customer can test to confirm the requirement is successfully implemented. 
Conduct a test export/import of a VM and ensure that the correct disk is being indicated as "os".

6. Is there already an existing RFE upstream or in Red Hat bugzilla?

7. How quickly does this need resolved?

8. List the affected packages 

9. Would the customer be able to assist in testing this functionality if implemented?
