Description Marcelo Giles 2011-08-18 02:20:45 UTC
Description of problem:

Currently, it seems that the configuration of virtual block devices is hard coded. Customer would like to have the capability to customize partitioning/formating of virtual block devices in their instances as they can currently do with say kvm, rhev, etc guests. 

Ideally, this should be doable performing kickstart installations of the VM instances.

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

This will only be possible for non-snapshot type builds and only in certain scenarios.  

Passing along to Chris for further concerns and comments.

Comment 2 Chris Lalancette 2011-08-18 14:00:42 UTC
We do indeed need to define a partition table portion of the TDL.  If we do that, then the user will be able to define partition tables when they submit the job for upload-style builds.

For snapshot style builds, it *might* be possible to honor the partition table.  However, it will require some investigation as to how viable it really is, as it could get complex very quickly.
