Description Sagi Shnaidman 2015-12-01 10:12:01 UTC
Require vmfex-dev hook installation for VDSM 3.6.

Comment 2 Nir Soffer 2015-12-09 09:42:18 UTC
Why this hook should be required?

This hook is built with vdsm, and can be installed if needed.

If the functionality of this hook is always required, we should integrate this
hook in the networking code instead.

Comment 3 Sagi Shnaidman 2015-12-09 11:57:57 UTC
Sorry, I have to redirect this question.

Comment 4 Dan Kenigsberg 2015-12-09 12:39:01 UTC
vdsm-hook-vmfex-dev allows connecting oVirt VMs to UCS-defined port profiles, as explained in 


This functionality (connecting to VM-FEX) is repeatedly requested by customers. Since this hook is well tested and mature, shipping it with Vdsm is safe and useful.
