Fixed In Version: ovirt-engine-
Doc Type: Bug Fix
Doc Text:
This fix addresses the attempt to move a disk with a damaged ancestor (e.g., the ancestor doesn't have an entry in the 'images' table), which leads to an NPE and an error. If the error persists, a possible workaround is to use the API to move the disk between storage domains. The fix documents the error in the Red Hat Virtualization Manager log.

Description RHV bug bot 2018-11-06 13:25:59 UTC
+++ This bug is a downstream clone. The original bug is: +++
+++   bug 1635405 +++

Description of problem:

When trying to move disks from UI, the dialog keeps spinning and ui.log 
throws a JavaScriptException: 'Cannot read property 'G' of null'

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


How reproducible:

100 % in customer's environment

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Get a working VM based on a template
2. Click on the 'Move' button in UI

Actual results:

Move Disks dialog keeps spinning and does not provide any information

Expected results:

Dialog should pop-up and let you continue with disk move flow

Additional info:

The VM had 2 snapshots referenced in DB, 1 for Live Storage migration which
didn't exist or is not associated to any volume


Use the API to move the disk between storage domains

curl \
--cacert '/etc/pki/ovirt-engine/ca.pem' \
--user '$USER@$DOMAIN:$PASS' \
--request POST \
--header 'Version: 4' \
--header 'Content-Type: application/xml' \
--header 'Accept: application/xml' \
--data '
  <storage_domain id="$sdUUID"/>
' \

Tested using :

I didn't manage to reproduce it eighter.
No errors found in logs (engine & VDSM) and browser developer console.

Moving to VERIFIED.
