Description Ilanit Stein 2017-07-05 06:26:58 EDT
Description of problem:
CFME: VM transform from VMWare to RHV is not done as clone.
As a result, the mac address assigned to the VM, created on the RHV side is VMWare mac address, though it should have a new mac address, from RHV mac pool range.

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

On RHV, v2v import VM as clone, is set by default.
Comment 2 Ilanit Stein 2017-07-11 11:18:22 EDT
This is probably caused by RHV REST API bug: https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=1437152
Comment 3 Ilanit Stein 2017-07-20 10:33:12 EDT
Note that when running Windows VM with scsi disk import, and NOT installing drivers, the mac address, that the destination VM is taken from the RHV mac pool range.
It will be interesting to understand why when no drivers installed the mac address is set OK.
Comment 4 Tomas Jelinek 2017-08-14 03:11:26 EDT
It has been fixed on RHV side to always import it as clone so the mac address is always re-generated.

The fix is in RHV 4.1.5 and no change on manageiq side - moving to ON_QA

Verified on CFME 'Fine' nightly August 10/RHV-4.1.5.-3:

RHEL/Windows imported VMs, have a mac from the RHV mac pool range, and not the VMWare original mac address.
Comment 7 Ilanit Stein 2017-08-28 04:07:41 EDT
Verified on CFME-

VM imported from VMWare to RHV has a mac address from RHV mac pool range, and not the original mac it had in VMware.
