Steps to Reproduce:
1.Export a vm with direct lun disk
2.Exported vm has no disk
the exported vm is not usable.
The vm should have a copy of the disk

Using LUNs directly as virtual machine hard disk images removes a layer of abstraction between the virtual machines and their data.
Here are the limitations by design:
- Live storage migration of direct LUN hard disk images is not supported.
- Direct LUN disks are not included in virtual machine exports.
- Direct LUN disks are not included in virtual machine snapshots

It could be (hence the RFE)

I see no reason not to add this option when exporting. It would mean of course that the disk would stop being a direct lun, but the request is valid.

technically it could be possible, although it would add a dependency on a storage domain disk in addition to the lun.
alternatively, once we introduce Cinder support then we'd be able to add 'managed' luns for which snapshots are supported by definition.

Closing old bugs. If this issue is still relevant/important in current version, please re-open the bug.

A customer is interested in this feature:
"Export VMs with Direct LUNs disks"
What's the reason of "WONTFIX"?

If there's a customer interested in it, we can definitely reevaluate when we plan the next version.

-- srm update
RHEV PM Yaniv Dary visited this customer in Spain last week and has direct feedback on the specific use case. Currently this cust has 181 multipath devices and based on discussion last week the customer is evaluating the migration from Direct Luns to SD as recommended by Yaniv, for better architecture, performance and scalability.
Pavel, why do we need another clone for this BZ?
