Comment 4 Avihai Shoham 2012-04-04 10:40:51 EDT
to fix this issue we need to resolve the round brackets which added to VM name.

Steps to Reproduce:
1.login to userportal 
2.have a VM with snapshots
3. choose snapshot and set it to preview mode (you will see that brackets were added to VM name)
4.RunOnce VM
Comment 5 Einav Cohen 2012-04-11 10:18:31 EDT
There is a possibility that there are two separate problems here, not sure if/how much they are related:

- The brackets should contain the VM description; in case the description of the VM is empty, you shouldn't see brackets at all. Here is seems that the description is empty, yet you are seeing the brackets; maybe the description is null and we are expecting a real string (i.e. empty string or non-empty string) and fail because of that; I assume that this happens only in "preview", when the relevant snapshot's configuration is being "loaded".

- When running the VM, there shouldn't be the exception - it seems more like an engine-core bug.

Tomas - please consult derez (that implemented the new snapshots view) with regards to this behavior.

[derez - you can take a look as well if you are seeing something that doesn't seem right]
Comment 6 Tomas Jelinek 2012-04-27 10:45:33 EDT
Currently it works for me - both the rounded brackets are not shown when there is no description and also the machine starts without any problem when the snapshot is in preview mode.

Could you please verify if it works also for you, so I can close this bug? I would say it has been fixed with some different patch.
