Doc Text:
Feature: Adding the ability to register VMs with external LUN disks Reason: Until now we ignored external LUN disks in VM's OVF. In oVirt 4.2 beta we added the support for those external LUN disks as part of the VM's OVF. With the added external LUN disks, oVirt gains the ability to register those VMs to the engine and add the external LUN disks of those VMs as well. Result: External LUN disks are now part of the VM's OVF and can be added as part of the VM registration. Keep in notice that once there is an existing external LUN disk in the ovirt-engine setup it must be removed before importing the VM, unless the partial_import flag is true. In that case the VM will be registered without the external LUN disk

Description Maor 2017-08-02 05:42:05 EDT
Description of problem:
The VM's OVF currently indicates disk images which are part of the VM.
The OVF should indicate external LUN disks.
I assume that the file mapping of those disks in the OVF should be using /dev/mapper/xxx-xxx-xxx

Maor - everything here seems to be merged.
Are we waiting for any other patches, or should this be MODIFIED?
Comment 2 Allon Mureinik 2017-11-19 05:53:24 EST
This improvement is useful even outside the context of the DR tool. Maor, can you supply some doctext fot this please?
Comment 3 Red Hat Bugzilla Rules Engine 2017-11-21 19:09:15 EST
The documentation text flag should only be set after 'doc text' field is provided. Please provide the documentation text and set the flag to '?' again.
Comment 4 Elad 2017-12-14 10:50:11 EST
Cannot check with FC due to https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=1525989
Comment 5 Elad 2018-01-07 08:09:53 EST
VM OVF now includes direct LUNs, also with FC (https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=1525989#c3).

Used rhvm-4.2.1-0.2.el7.noarch
