Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 1273947
Disable volume name customization when a VMware CR is choosen
Last modified: 2017-08-01 16:01:52 EDT
Description of problem:
cannot change the HardDisk name when provisioning a vm for vmware compute resource.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. add a vmware compute resource
2. provision a host on this compute resource with a custom HD name
3. Unable to see the custom HD name at vmware end
Unable to see the custom HD name in the vmware
Should be able to see the custom HD name at the vmware side.
Is this related to the newer fog?
This is with only Satellite6.1.3 no fog libs updated.
Created redmine issue http://projects.theforeman.org/issues/12652 from this bug
From upstream bug. Kedar, can you check into this:
Working in a big vmware environment, I can tell you that there is no way to customize the HDD name of a VM on the VMware side.
I know this is possible in RHEV/Ovirt (and maybe other CR managed by fog) but not in VMware.
So, this bug should be modified to something like "Disable volume name customization when a VMware CR is choosen".

Ok, let's update this bug as per the suggestion.
Upstream bug component is Compute Resources - VMWare
