Description Nikolai Sednev 2015-11-16 08:18:13 EST
Description of problem:
Usability problem with serial-console. Unable to kick-off stuck or active serial-console connection.

In case I'm connected from one terminal towards VM over serial console and I want to get connected to the same VM from another terminal, I can't kick-off the first active or stuck session. 

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):


How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1.Connect to VM over serial-console from first terminal.
2.Try connecting from second terminal to the same VM over serial-console.
3.You can't kick-off the first active/stuck serial-console session.

Actual results:
You can't kick-off the first active/stuck serial-console session.

Expected results:
Customer should have the capability to end active/stuck serial-console session, for example if that is the same customer and he/she wants to establish serial-console connection from another terminal or he/she knows that session is stuck and would like to drop it, without waiting for the session time-out to expire.

Additional info:
Comment 1 Alon Bar-Lev 2015-11-16 08:22:31 EST
this has nothing to do with vmconsole, should be a command sent by webadmin.

again, qa should be instructed of the scope of this feature and start invest time in more productive tasks.

patches dropped, wrong approach.
