Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 1304729
Hovering above an exclamation mark next to vm icon does not produce the expected message
Last modified: 2016-07-19 06:03:07 EDT
Description of problem:
Upon some problematic state or configuration of a vm, an exclamation mark appears next to a VM symbol in webadmin-> Virtual Machines tab, and hovering above it should present the user with the relevant message.
e.g. If there's a difference between the Timezone configuration of the vm in the system and the actual timezone of the vm, than the following message should appears when hovering mouse above the exclamation mark:
"Actual timezone in the guest differs from the configuration".
Right now no message appear with the exclamation mark, this was tried with different causes for this behaviour (1 - the above example, 2- difference between VM's actual OS and the OS configured in rhevm).
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Create a vm and install some RHEL OS on it.
2. Set the VM os in rhevm to some windows version and restart the vm.
3. An exclamation mark appears next to the vm icon - hover the mouse above it.
Nothing happens, no message is seen.
The following message should appears in this case:
"Actual operating system type differs from the configuration"

It seems this regression has been caused by:
Assigning to UX for investigation why has this change been introduced
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.
My bad, it looked like dead code to me. I'll fix.

Verified in rhevm-webadmin-portal-3.6.5-0.1.el6.noarch
1. Have a running VM with RHEL7 OS installed (guest agent too) and time zone set to GMT+2.
2. Shut down the VM and change OS type to Windows 7 x64 and Time Zone to GMT.
3. Start the VM again.
Results: exclamaion mark appears next to VM status icon, hovering over it shows a tooltip:
Actual timezone in the guest differs...
Actual operating system type differs...
See attached screenshot for details.
The amount of text isn't honestly optimal for the small tooltip, but for now I guess it's better than no information at all.
