Rastislav hi,

The create VM from template was redesigned fixing lots of issues, I think this one was addressed too,
When creating a VM from template in the new flow, user will get the template "as is" without changes (e.g. no guest agent disk, cloudinit changes, ...), Rastislav am I correct ?

Comment 2 Rastislav Wagner 2020-11-23 07:31:42 UTC
@yzamir no, we still mount the guest agent (user have to go to advanced wizard if he doesnt want it mounted).

Bug is still probably there, I didnt change much in advanced wizard.

Comment 4 Chandler Wilkerson 2020-11-30 14:30:40 UTC
I just confirmed bug is still there in OpenShift Virtualization 2.5.1

Comment 6 Yaacov Zamir 2020-12-30 07:47:31 UTC
When fixing this bug look at this other bugs related to storage not using data available in the template to create storage in VM:

https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=1911382 - source volumeMode (Block) and target volumeMode (Filesystem) do not match" shows in VM Error

https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=1911418 -  The target storage class name is not displayed if default storage class is used (assigned Gilad)
