Description Sayli Karmarkar 2009-02-26 14:11:58 EST
Description of problem:
kickstart profile related API docs in kickstart namespace which create kickstart or import kickstart file etc say:

Method: createProfile
Import a kickstart profile into RHN.


    * string sessionKey
    * string profileLabel - Label for the new kickstart profile.
    * string virtualizationType - para_host, para_guest, or none.    <<<------

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

How reproducible:
Go to kickstart API docs. 
Grep for "none"
Actual results:
   * string virtualizationType - para_host, para_guest, or none.    <<<------

Expected results:
   We need to talk Mike(mmccune) about what final types are going to be used. Afaik, they are xenpv, xenfv and pvhost 

Additional info:

I have found it mainly in kickstart namespace, but it might be present at other places also. We need to verify that.

git commit: 4a399d68421491b1fc5b91f022674c9aaba1e8bb

Valid values for virtualizationType are para_host, qemu, xenfv and xenpv.

Updated API docs for kickstart.importFile, kickstart.createProfile, kickstart.createProfileWithCustomUrl, kickstart.importRawFile to reflect the new values.
