Description Amos Mastbaum 2021-08-12 16:11:30 UTC
Description of problem:

With MTV 2.1.0 / CNV 4.8.z, VMIO blocks the migration of RHV VMs configured with a non-UTC timezone.

 - lastHeartbeatTime: "2021-08-12T16:02:24Z"
    lastTransitionTime: "2021-08-12T15:55:43Z"
    message: VM's timezone is not UTC-compatible. It should have offset of 0 and not observe DST
    reason: MappingRulesVerificationFailed
    status: "False"
    type: MappingRulesVerified

The full VirtualMachineImport CR is attached to this bug.

With https://github.com/kubevirt/kubevirt/pull/3973, Kubevirt supports setting the timezone in the VirtualMachine spec.
This means that during the migration of a virtual machine from RHV, the timezone can and must be kept.

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. In RHV, create a virtual machine with a non-UTC timezone.
2. IN MTV, create a plan with the newly created virtual machine.
3. Start the plan.
4. Watch the VirtualMachineImport, Migration and Plan CRs.

Actual results:
The plan is in running state and the "faulty" virtual machine migration hangs.

Expected results:
The VirtualMachine CR created by MTV should reflect the timezone of the source virtual machine in RHV.
