Description Beat Rubischon 2017-12-27 10:29:17 UTC
Description of problem:

Provisioning a new VMware based VM from an image using hammer ignores the parameter --image-id, the image from the compute profile is taken.

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

Satellite 6.2.12

How reproducible:


Steps to Reproduce:
1. Attach Satellite to vCenter
2. Store templates
3. Provision new machine

hammer host create \
  --name "${vm_hostname}" \
  --ip "${vm_ip}" \
  --organization-id "${orgid}" \
  --domain "${vm_domain}" \
  --subnet "${SubnetName}" \
  --location "${SubnetLocation}" \
  --hostgroup "${vm_hostgroup}" \
  --compute-resource-id "${compute_resource_id}" \
  --compute-profile-id "${compute_profile_id}" \
  --provision-method "image" --image-id "${vm_image_id}" --build true \
  --enabled true --managed true \
                        start=1" \
               ip=${vm_ip}" \
            name='Hard Disk'"

Actual results:

--image-id is ignored, image from --compute-profile-id is taken

Expected results:

--image-id is considered
