Description Fabien Dupont 2020-09-17 15:53:30 UTC
Description of problem:

Kubevirt doesn't support UEFI, but the import wizard doesn't block import of VMware VMs with EFI firmware. This should be blocked in the UI, or at least warned, to not create unusable VMs.

The property of VMware side is "Vm.Config.Firmware" and the value is either "bios" or "efi". Only "bios" should be allowed.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable): 4.5.8

Comment 1 Tomas Jelinek 2020-09-21 08:44:06 UTC
Leaving this on the blocker list since UEFI is very common and would cause lots of frustration to let the user fail.

Comment 2 Tomas Jelinek 2020-09-24 05:51:48 UTC
dropping from blocker list

Comment 5 Maayan Hadasi 2020-10-11 15:08:28 UTC
Verified as Fixed

OCP 4.6.0-fc.9
CNV 2.5.0
CSV createdAt: "2020-10-07 18:21:34"

Verification steps:
1. Edit VMware VM settings: VM Options -> Boot Options -> Firmware: EFI
2. Try to import it with wizard to CNV

Error message appears after selecting VM to import:
"VM has unsupported firmware: efi"
By pressing on 'Next' button - the following error message will be displayed:
"Some fields are not correct
Please select a valid VM."
