Description Simone Tiraboschi 2016-01-21 04:11:27 EST
Description of problem:
Currently, if the user chooses to use the engine-appliance, hosted-engine-setup simply uses the disk size specified by the OVF.

Let the user customize (increase only) the disk size could be an interesting feature for many users.

To accomplish that we need also to install cloud-utils-growpart inside the engine appliance: cloud-utils-growpart, on the first boot, will automatically grow the partition and the FS to use the whole disk.

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

How reproducible:
100% RFE

Steps to Reproduce:
1. deploy hosted-engine using the engine-appliance

Actual results:
we just use the value provided in the OVF

Expected results:
hosted-engine-setup let the user customize (increase only) the disk size; the engine appliance will come with cloud-utils-growpart to automatically grow the partition and the FS to use the whole disk.

Bug tickets must have version flags set prior to targeting them to a release. Please ask maintainer to set the correct version flags and only then set the target milestone.
Comment 2 Sandro Bonazzola 2016-12-12 08:56:24 EST
The fix for this issue should be included in oVirt 4.1.0 beta 1 released on December 1st. If not included please move back to modified.
Comment 3 Nikolai Sednev 2016-12-12 12:07:46 EST
During HE deployment process, customer being asked to provide desired disk size for the engine:
Please specify the size of the VM disk in GB: [25]: 50
(I chose 50 just in case here).

Checked on these components on host:
Linux version 3.10.0-514.2.2.el7.x86_64 (mockbuild@x86-019.build.eng.bos.redhat.com) (gcc version 4.8.5 20150623 (Red Hat 4.8.5-11) (GCC) ) #1 SMP Wed Nov 16 13:15:13 EST 2016
Linux 3.10.0-514.2.2.el7.x86_64 #1 SMP Wed Nov 16 13:15:13 EST 2016 x86_64 x86_64 x86_64 GNU/Linux
Red Hat Enterprise Linux Server release 7.3 (Maipo)

Moving this bug to verified as it works as designed.
