  None (edit)
Description jniederm 2015-09-02 06:52:53 EDT
Description of problem:
Storage domains (especially the ISO one) may contain various auxiliary hidden files (like '.keep') that are not important from the engine point of view and make it difficult for users for find relevant files.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
4.0 master, commit c51fc13

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Create an ISO domain and attach it to DC
2. Create '.keep' file in the iso comain
In WebAdmin:
4. Open Storage main tab
5. Select the ISO domain
6. Select the Images subtab
7. Click refresh button

Actual results:
The list contains '.keep' file

Expected results:
The list doesn't contain any hidden files

Vdsm is not the right place to filter the dot files. Vdsm is not a user level tool but a helper for engine, and it should not implement such policy. The right place to filter these files is in the engine.

Moving this bug to engine for consideration.

not urgent, postponing

best would be to have a VdcOption with a mask, something like "*initrd*,vmlinu*,*mage"

Target release should be placed once a package build is known to fix a issue. Since this bug is not modified, the target version has been reset. Please use target milestone to plan a fix for a oVirt release.
