Description Michal Skrivanek 2021-01-07 15:52:36 UTC
Let's add support for running a RHEL 9 guest
- new OS type and drop down
- icon
- make sure qemu-ga works ok
- especially check of QXL/SPICE console since SPICE is dropped from RHEL 9 )our RHEL8 host will have spice-server, but guest may not have qxl)

From bz 1941324:
Configure, by default, RHEL-9 Desktop/Workstation VMs with virtio-vga (and virtio-gpu) devices.

  - 3 hosts with RHV 4.4.7-3 and RHEL 8.4, vdsm-


  - Ran the RHEL based guest image regression on the latest RHEL 9 image with UEFI and BIOS.
    Result: All the tests passed.

  - Checked that QEMU information was retrieved from the VM and it is displayed properly.
    Result: The QEMU information was retrieved from the VM and it is displayed properly.

  - Checked that RHEL 9 is listed as an operating systems (Checked Rest and UI).

    Result: It appeared in the dropdown when creating/editing VM/Templates and also in the Rest API:
