Description Arik 2015-12-29 07:44:20 EST
Description of problem:
If we want to import VM that is called X in VMware and for the imported VM to be called Y in oVirt, the import-VM dialog allows us to modify the name of the VM, however this conversion will most probably fail and in the worse case, if there is a VM with that name in vSphere, we will import the wrong VM.

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Load VMs from VMware
2. Change the name of a VM that is going to be imported in the import dialog to a name that doesn't match the name of any VM in VMware.

Actual results:
Conversion fail, a VM with the new name does not exist in VMware

Expected results:
The conversion should succeed, the VM in oVirt should be with the modified name

Additional info:
We need to differentiate the name that the VM is going to have and the original name of the VM and to use the original one in the conversion.

Verified on :

1)Import VM with new name.
2)Import VM and change the name to a name that match other VM name in VMware. and verified that the VM imported is the one that was selected and not the one with the same name.
