Description luke couzens 2017-01-31 13:08:36 UTC
Description of problem:If you decrease cpu socket count from a vsphere vm while powered on you receive an inaccurate error message.

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

How reproducible:100%

Steps to Reproduce:
1.Add vsphere provider to CFME appliance
2.Provision new vm (rhel7 in my case)
3.Turn on cpu hot plug withing VMWare
4.Reconfigure the vm reducing its cpu socket count

Actual results: Error: CPU hot plug is not supported for this virtual machine.

Expected results:I believe the correct error should be something like: 'unable to decrease cpu count in powered on state'.

Additional info:
Test was ran with vsphere 5.5 provider

Comment 2 Adam Grare 2017-03-06 16:24:04 UTC
This was fixed by https://github.com/ManageIQ/manageiq/pull/12275 and is in 5.8
We validate the requested changes against the hot-plug settings on the VM and print a more informative error message, in this case it will read "Error: Cannot remove CPUs from a running VM"

It should be noted that the error message that you reported actually comes from VMware not CFME, the reason being that while cpu-hot-add is enabled cpu-hot-remove is not, they just have one error message to report that.

That PR depends on a SQL migration (https://github.com/ManageIQ/manageiq/pull/12145) hence why it was not backported.
