This update disables the 'Select as SPM' option in the Manager for Red Hat Gluster Storage (RHGS) nodes because selecting a RHGS host as SPM is meaningless since it doesn't provide a virtualization service.

Description Pawan kumar Vilayatkar 2015-09-18 01:58:07 EDT

- What is the nature and description of the request? 

Disable 'Select as SPM' option for RHGS (Red Hat Gluster storage) nodes in RHEV-M console

- Why do you need this? (List the business requirements here)

RHGS nodes cannot act as SPM by design, they are providing storage, no virtual machines are running on them

- How would you like to achieve this? (List the functional requirements here)

Remove (or disable) 'Select as SPM' option for RHGS nodes in RHEV-M console

- Do you have any specific time-line dependencies?

No. But this is a bug and should be fixed as soon as possible

- List any affected packages or components.


- Would you be able to assist in testing this functionality if implemented?


- For each functional requirement listed in the previous question, can test to confirm the requirement is successfully implemented.

This sounds more like a bugfix than an RFE.

An RHGS node obviously can't be an SPM, and this should be blocked from both the GUI and REST.
Comment 3 Sandro Bonazzola 2015-10-26 08:28:31 EDT
this is an automated message. oVirt 3.6.0 RC3 has been released and GA is targeted to next week, Nov 4th 2015.
Please review this bug and if not a blocker, please postpone to a later release.
All bugs not postponed on GA release will be automatically re-targeted to

- 3.6.1 if severity >= high
- 4.0 if severity < high

Is anyone looking at this bug/RFE?
Comment 5 Ramesh N 2016-06-20 07:05:32 EDT
'Select as SPM' action should be supported only for Virt Nodes. I Will add a validation to UI and Backend to make sure it is enabled only if the Node has Virt service enabled.
Comment 6 SATHEESARAN 2016-08-22 08:03:52 EDT
Tested with RHGS 3.1.3 ( vdsm-4.17.33-1.el7rhgs ) and RHV 4.0.2-7

While selecting the RHGS nodes, the option 'Select as SPM' is not highlighted

Note :
But while adding the new host, the new host deploy window shows up the policies related to virt node and also the SPM tab. The bug[1] has been filed for the same
