Description Martin Pavlik 2013-10-08 08:58:58 EDT
Description of problem:
It does really not make sense to have VM Network checkbox in the middle of Manage network dialog.

1) it is confusing because all the checkboxes look the same (in unchecked state)  and 4 of 5 can be changed, just the VM network is not interactive (because VM network is property set per network, not per cluster)

2) VM network checkbox as indicator of network role is redundant since user can see network role icon in background on Networks main tab

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Red Hat Enterprise Virtualization Manager Version: 3.3.0-0.24.master.el6ev 

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. create new network
2. pick the new network and go to Clusters sub-tab
3. click manage networks (see screenshot)

Actual results:
VM network checkbox is confusing for the user

Expected results:
Remove VM network checkbox form Manage Network dialog or at least make it clear for user that this checkbox is not interactive

Suggestion for change:

Replace VM network checkbox with green vm icon which is shown under Role column in main tab Netwoks.

VM network = True => green VM icon is shown
VM network = False => no icon is show

In my opinion this would make it clear for the user that this field is not to be changed in this dialog window.
