Description of problem:
My proposal is to add a check-box to 'run-once' window which will allow user to open a console window automatically, immediately after staring the VM.

In my opinion, this feature will be very helpful to user because when installing an operating system from PXE, user has only few seconds to catch the PXE menu. During this few seconds user should be manage to open the console window manually. 

The check-box can be added to the 'display protocol' tab in the 'run-once' window.

Comment 1 Itamar Heim 2013-12-29 09:01:03 UTC
that's an inherit race condition by design. run once ends when the VM is in waitforlaunch state in vdsm. opening a console at this point will fail as no qemu process listening yet.

Comment 3 Michal Skrivanek 2015-03-27 08:04:49 UTC
note there is the Start in Paused mode

Comment 4 Yaniv Kaul 2015-11-12 12:43:53 UTC
I think it's a fine RFE, but due to the issue in comment 1 , we'll probably not going to invest in implementing it.

I do wish we could launch a VM much faster than we do today, btw.

Michal - unless you think differently, I assume we can CLOSE-WONTFIX.

Comment 5 Michal Skrivanek 2015-11-12 15:13:42 UTC
we do launch VMs quite fast, the trouble is with UI refresh. We eliminated the delay on engine-vdsm polling (up to 3s) so it should be better in 3.6, still the up to 5s UI refresh remains

closing based on partial improvement in launch time and workaround/suggestion in comment #3
