Description Jake Hunsaker 2014-06-23 15:54:22 UTC
Description of problem:

If an anti-affinity policy is applied to VMs that are currently running on the same hypervisor, the engine will not automatically migrate one of them off once the policy is applied. 

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


How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Have two (or more) VMs running on the same hypervisor
2. Create a new anti-affinity policy and apply it to these VMs

Actual results:
VMs remain running on the same hypervisor

Expected results:
Engine should detect that a new policy has been applied and migrate one of the VMs off.

Additional info:
Hard/Soft policy makes no difference on this.
