Comment 2 Juan Hernández 2014-02-04 09:48:42 UTC
This OVF information is presented by the RESTAPI if it is available in the database, the limitation is that for the active VM the database doesn't populate the vm_configuration column of the snapshots table. Once that column is populated the RESTAPI will automatically provide the information.

Comment 5 Satya 2014-02-19 17:43:29 UTC
I don't see any network/nic information in the xml. Is this by design?

Comment 6 Liron Aravot 2014-02-20 07:30:33 UTC
it's contained in the ovf as well, i assume that the tested vm just didn't have any nics.

quick note, as mentioned by metial - recieving the ovf of the active vm is done using a get request to /api/vms/GUID/ or /api/vms with the header All-Content (value : true) and not through /snapshots.

Comment 7 Meital Bourvine 2014-02-20 09:21:40 UTC
Indeed the tested vm didn't have any nic.
