Description Yaacov Zamir 2020-09-30 12:04:45 UTC
Description of problem:
When an unsupported version of guest agent is installed, kubevirt may or may not send guest agent information. User needs to know that the reason for missing information may be an unsupported version and not just missing guest agent.

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. create a vm with an unsuported guest agent data.
   before creating the VM you can change the:
   supported-guest-agent field in the kubevirt-config config map.
2. check the VM detauls page

Actual results:
A message saying guest agent is not installed.

Expected results:
A message saying guest is installed with wrong version number.

Additional info:
Sometimes kubevirt will get data from an supported versions, acting like it's a supported version, and sometimes not, acting like ga is not installed.

Comment 3 Guohua Ouyang 2020-10-12 02:45:58 UTC
It shows below message when unsupported version of the guest agent is installed.

"This VM has an unsupported version of the guest agent. When an unsupported version of a guest agent is installed, some management features are unavailable and the metrics might be inaccurate. Check with your system adminstartor for supported guest agent versions."
