Description Yaniv Lavi 2016-03-14 05:13:01 EDT
Description of problem:
After live storage migration(LSM),the snapshot auto-generated during live storage migration has to be manually deleted after shutting down the VM.It would be nice if the auto-generated snapshot and its backing file could be live merged without having to shutdown the VM.

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1.Live migrate a disk attached to a VM from one SD to another
Actual results:
After LSM,the snapshot auto-generated during live storage migration has to be manually deleted after shutting down the VM.

Expected results:
VDSM should live merge the auto-generated snapshot and its backing file after LSM.

Moving from 4.0 alpha to 4.0 beta since 4.0 alpha has been already released and bug is not ON_QA.
Comment 2 Allon Mureinik 2016-06-05 09:25:06 EDT
Ala, this is a highly visible customer facing issue - please provide some doctext for it.
Comment 3 Kevin Alon Goldblatt 2016-06-07 07:20:54 EDT
Test the with the following code:

Tested with the following scenario:
1.Created 3 Storage Domains, iscsi, nfs and fc
2.Created a VM with disks on each of the SD
3.Started the Vm and then performed a LSM of each disk to a different SD >>>>>
The auto created snapshot is created successfully
On completion of the LSM the auto created sns is deleted
The size of the disks are updated correctly

Tahila - please also note documentation bug 1343903 which lists several places the removed behavior is listed. I'm guessing that and the doctext of this bug should somehow be handled together.
Comment 6 Tahlia Richardson 2016-06-24 01:13:18 EDT
