[v2v] No error message when importing Windows VM, without Driver install.
Last modified: 2017-07-18 09:26:33 EDT
Description of problem:
When running a v2v for a Windows VM, it is possible to press submit, and VM is indeed imported from VMware to RHV, however without the virtio driver, this imported VM will not be able to run Windows.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
CFME-5.8.1 + Few fixes that allow install driver field to function/RHV-4.1.3
Steps to Reproduce:
There should be an error message, when trying to import Windows VM, without installing the proper drivers.
> this imported VM will not be able to run Windows.
This statement is not true. The virtio drivers are only necessary for certain windows VMs (e.g. if you use IDE disks you don't need them) and the user may already have installed the drivers in the VM beforehand.
Also please not the v2v in RHV webadmin UI allows you to do exactly the same thing, perform v2v without drivers ISO attached, we are simply giving the user the same choice as in RHV.
