Fixed In Version:
Doc Type: Bug Fix
Doc Text:
The previous virtual machine payload ISO used only the Rock Ridge extension, and as a result Windows virtual machines could not use payloads with long filenames. This fix adds Microsoft's Joliet filesystem extension to the generated ISO, so that payloads with long filenames are now displayed correctly on both Windows and Linux systems.

Description Michal Skrivanek 2015-03-24 07:35:13 UTC
The payload iso is missing Joliet extensions for long filename support on Windows OSes, we do enable Rock Ridge for Linux guests so we should do the same for Windows
shouldn't hurt, they can coexist together

Verify with:
oVirt Engine Version: 3.6.0-0.0.master.20150519172219.git9a2e2b3.el6 
VDSM Version: vdsm-4.17.0-912

1. Create 2 VM: Windows7 and RHEL-7.0
2. Add payload via rest with the long file name (more then 15 chars) to each VM like: ABcdefg_xyz_ooo_1234.txt
3. Check payload on VM.

On both OS the file name is as configure.
