Description Fabian Deutsch 2015-11-09 12:40:51 EST
Description of problem:
It would be nice to have a drop-in dir for the vdsm.conf file, i.e.:

Conf files put into that directory could then be used to override directives in the vdsm.conf files.

My usage scenario would be: I manipulate the vdsm.conf file right after installation. But at registration time the vdsm.conf file get's re-written.
If we had the snippets, the snippet would be kept and would survive the registration.

This request has been proposed for two releases. This is invalid flag usage. The ovirt-future release flag has been cleared. If you wish to change the release flag, you must clear one release flag and then set the other release flag to ?.
Comment 8 Oved Ourfali 2016-05-26 04:00:16 EDT
Irit - should the bug move to POST now that you have a patch addressing it?
