Fixed In Version:
Doc Type: Enhancement
Doc Text:
This release adds the ability to register unregistered floating disks through the GUI. Previously, because floating disks are not part of any virtual machine or template, the user could only register floating disks from the REST API, not from the GUI. Now there is a subtab in the GUI called "Import Disk" which allows the user to register a floating disk into the setup. Storage domains also support a functionality called "Scan Disks", which scans the storage domain for unregistered floating disks that are not reflected in the setup. This can be helpful for managing disks from external storage domains.

Description Maor 2014-09-04 07:11:45 UTC
Description of problem:
There should be an extra button in the GUI which will import all those floating disks. Currently those disks will not have an alias, this should be fixed once the alias will be saved in the description meta data.

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Try to import a Storage Domain with floating disks

Actual results:
Those floating disks could only be registered through the REST

Expected results:
There should be a button to register all the floating disks

Marina, please consider the main reason to add the import domain feature was DR, not moving storage from one DC to another.

We can explore that once it's in and we know the change size and risk. Is that any workaround for the customer to readd the vdisks?

The backend and REST API parts are already there.
This BZ is about exposing the same functionality in the webadmin.

Comment 14 Mike McCune 2016-03-28 23:07:19 UTC
This bug was accidentally moved from POST to MODIFIED via an error in automation, please see mmccune@redhat.com with any questions

Comment 15 Allon Mureinik 2016-04-07 08:41:54 UTC
Maor, as far as I understand, the GUI part is merged, and we're just lacking some REST parts.

If this is correct, can you please move this BZ to MODIFIED and open a new one on the REST parts?

Comment 18 Kevin Alon Goldblatt 2016-06-07 13:19:15 UTC
Test the with the following code:

Tested with the following scenario:
1.Created 3 types of Storage Domains, scsci, nfs and fc
2.Created 3 floating disks on each
3.First put into maintenance, then detached, and then removed all 3 domains without Formatting them
4.Via the Storage Tab imported the domains again successfully
5.Via the Storage Tab selected each domain and attached and activated them again
6.Via the Storage Tab selected the newly imported, attached and activated storage domains - selected the 'Disk Import' tab - all the floating disks are displayed. Select all the floating disks and successfully imported them.

Now to perform a Full Test Cycle as this is an RFE.
