Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 500940
virt-manager should delete failed guest images
Last modified: 2010-06-16 13:52:04 EDT
Description of problem:
Not infrequently there is a problem setting up a guest and this leaves an empty unused guest image lying around.
I think it would be better for virt-manager to ask if it is ok to reuse an ununsed guest image rather than
always just create a new one.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. install "myguest" from autofs'ed net iso image
1. no images/myguest.img
2. or maybe "There is already an myguest.img which is not owned by any guests. Would you like to use it?"
Currently new v-m will waste a lot of diskspace with orphaned disk images from aborted guests.
I went with your #2 suggestion, offer to reuse and existing disk image if no other guests are using it:
Probably also a good idea to offer a way to clean up created storage, but haven't messed with that yet.
