Description Germano Veit Michel 2022-04-26 03:51:19 UTC
Description of problem:

1. Go to Virtualization -> Templates (sources were auto-populated by setting default StorageClass)
2. Create new VM with Wizard
3. Select RHEL8 (or any other)
4. Next
5. Customize Virtual Machine
6. Click Storage

Note down the value in 'Size':

Name        Source   Size             Drive   Interface   Storage class   
rootdisk    pvc      11362347344 B.   Disk    virtio      synology

7. Click the 3 dots for the disk and select 'Edit'

8. In the size field, the same number (in my case 11362347344) appears, but the unit is now GB, not B. This results in a ridiculously large disk.

* The Size column should use a more human readable unit for disk size, bytes it not it. GB would make more sense for Virtual Machine disks in general.
* The unit changed from B to GB, multiplying the size of my disk at step 7.

This problem should be fixed in newer 4.10.z build, by editing the disk, it didn't saved a large disk even through a large number shows in storage tab at first.
The only issue is a large number shows in storage tab at first, I think we will leave it unless customer request fixing.

Closing as WONTFIX based on comment #4, feel free to reopen if a customer encounters it again and requests a fix

Comment 6 Guohua Ouyang 2022-06-13 09:56:13 UTC
Reopen this bug based on the feedback from PM.
The only issue is the size of the root disk shows in individual Bytes, reproduce steps:
1. create vm from a template which has auto-update boot source
2. enter into customize mode
3. check the root disk size on storage step, it shows something like "34087042032 B"
4. check the root disk size on the review step, it shows something like "34087042032 B"

Comment 7 Hilda Stastna 2022-06-13 17:24:38 UTC
Hi Guohua,

I cannot reproduce in 4.11, also there is no any "Storage step" anymore (as mentioned in the Comment 6), we only have the Disks tab when customizing VM,
and there is no any issue with displaying disk size in bytes (in the column or when editing the disk - doesn't matter), no matter if auto-update boot source or not.
Could you, please, check it and make sure/add more info about the steps to reproduce? Thanks!
