Doc Text:
In Red Hat Satellite 6.6, you can now select a destination storage domain when creating a host on Red Hat Virtualization. When selecting a template that includes disks for a host, you can change the storage domain and the storage allocation. This clones the disk from the template and changes the storage domain and allocation of the cloned disk, allowing you to select a destination storage domain without needing to manually clone the disk in Red Hat Virtualization first.

Description Andrea Perotti 2018-03-21 13:44:10 UTC
Description of problem:

When Satellite uses a VMware compute resource, the 'new host' procedure allows to deploy a new by using a template image, and in the 'virtual machine' tab, we can select host, cluster, datastore and disk size.

When using RHV compute resource, the possibilities are way more limited, and is only possible to  "add storage", but is not possible to modify the template settings.

This means if the template is on storage domain A, can't be set the storage domain B as target. 

From RHV mgmt console, when deploying from template, those options are selectable.

The Use Case here is to have the possibility to deploy:
- on multiple datacenters 
- on multiple Storage Domains 

from a single basic template and customizing it at provisioning time via Sat6, without using RHV console.

The problem has been verified with RHV 4.1.8 connected to:
- Satellite 6.2.13 
- Satellite 6.3.0
