Doc Type: Enhancement
Doc Text:
Feature: Support unregister vm from ovirt-engine (removing the vm, but retaining its disks) Reason: Before adding that capability to CFME, the admin could only remove the VM entirely, without preserving its disks to be used later (i.e. by attaching them to a different vm ) Result: With this fix, the user will be able to remove the VM from ovirt-engine, but to preserve its disks. This feature is supported only for ovirt-engine that supports api v4 (ovirt-engine-4.0 and above).

Comment 2 Ilanit Stein 2018-06-13 09:33:48 UTC
Verified on CFME-, RHV-

Steps done under Automation:

1) In Automate->Explorer added a new domain and a namespace.
(As a reference, this link can be used to create the domain/namespace:
See the "hello world" method creation flow.

Copy instance Redhat-> Infrastructure->VMware->VimApi->"VMware_HotAdd_Disk"
to the created namespace path.
(See 'unregister_vm_copy_instance.png' attached).

2) Edit the Instance name into "Unregister_vm", 
   and the method name into "unregister_vm".
(See 'add_method_for_unregister.png' attached)
Set the method type as inline, and add this content:

# Description: This method is used to unregister a vm
# Inputs: vm_name

# Get vm object
vm_name = $evm.root['vm_name']
$evm.log("info", "-------->>>> Trying to unregister VM: <#{vm_name}>")

$evm.root['vm'] = $evm.vmdb('vm').find_by_name(vm_name)
vm = $evm.root['vm']
raise "Missing $evm.root['vm'] object" unless vm


3) Then run Automate->Simulation, with vm_name of VM that we want to unregister.
This VM should have a disk that is not of an existing template, and should be in state down for the unregister succeed.
(See automate_simulation.png)

* For the RHV-4.2 VM,
Once the simulation operation was complete, the VM was removed, 
and it's disk remained (was not removed).

* For the RHV-3.6 VM,
Simulation operation fail: the VM was NOT removed.
No error seen in the CFME UI,
however evm.log contain this error:
