Description Коренберг Марк 2010-07-07 10:54:40 UTC
Now, we have "Browse local" button.

But when connecting to remote server, there is no such button, which is the pain, because using pools is not always suitable.

VMware  have this opportunity since beginning. :)

Comment 2 Cole Robinson 2010-08-21 19:09:52 UTC
The storage pool dialog is all we can do at this point, there won't ever be a real 'Browse remote' button that pops up a FileChooser, the capability just doesn't exist. If you have issues with libvirt storage pools/volumes, please file separate bugs.

Comment 3 Коренберг Марк 2010-08-24 03:41:23 UTC
But when working on the local host, we can go over libvirt and browse files directly. So why not to do the same, but over network? I think sftp support will be nice.
