Fixed In Version:
Doc Type: Bug Fix
Doc Text:
Previously, the correctness of an ISO file type was not enforced at the customization level, so the user could pass an invalid file, causing the virtual machine to refuse to boot. This error has now been fixed.

Description movciari 2013-11-19 13:44:36 UTC
Description of problem:
when running hosted-engine --deploy, when trying to install from cdrom file, after you provide path to file setup script checks to if file exists but doesn't check if it's really iso file

setup creates VM and tries to boot it from this file, inside VM boot fails and VM boots from PXE

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. create some file that's not an iso image file (for example empty file or text file)
2. try using it as cdrom file in ovirt-hosted-engine-setup

Actual results:
setup will not fail, it will create VM and try to boot it from that file, which will result in VM booting from PXE because it couldn't boot from cdrom

Expected results:
setup should check if file is really iso file and if it's not, it should give appropriate error message and let user choose another file
