Description of problem:
When importing a VM image for instance via Glance, they have the field "Memory Balloon Device Enabled" unchecked. This is different than the default when creating a fresh VM from the default template.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Import an image from glance as template
2. Check the "Resource Allocation" tab
3. "Memory Balloon Device Enabled" is disabled
VMs from the new tamplate are then created without ballooning device.
Having "Memory Balloon Device Enabled" checked by defualt, like in every other VM flow.
The initial balloon setting is based on either the instance type (default ones have it disabled) or the selected template if no instance type is used, using "Blank" when you don't select any template
Tal, Import from Glance was a storage feature - was this intentional? If not then I suppose it could use "Blank" as well
No, it was not done on purpose.
most of the settings are not set by default when importing from external provider but since it's a desired behavior I've changed it

This happens for the template and for the vms created from the template imported.
oVirt 4.0.0 has been released, closing current release.
