Description Robert Middleswarth 2012-05-03 21:17:38 EDT
These image files provide software that can be installed on guest operating systems to improve the performance and usability of the virtual machine. The most recent virtio-win and rhev-tools-setup images are referred to by the following symbolic links on the filesystem of the oVirt Engine:

• /usr/share/virtio-win/virtio-win.iso
• /usr/share/virtio-win/virtio-win.vfd
• /usr/share/rhev-guest-tools-iso/rhev-tools-setup.iso

These don't exist now and there isn't any info on where to get them.  Although I was about to find virtio-win.iso but not able to find virtio-win.vfd and rhev-tools-setup.iso I double checked for ovirt-tools-setup.iso as well and not able to find those at all.  This section either needs updated or removed.

Comment 1 Stephen Gordon 2012-05-03 22:11:26 EDT
Well, ideally I think the solution would be for us to release them since it's the most common thing people come to #ovirt looking for, but I will see what I can do ;).
Comment 2 Robert Middleswarth 2012-05-04 10:10:58 EDT
Ideally they should be installed.  Secondary would be nice to link to a place to download them.  Worse case is to remove the section completely.

Hi Ofer,

Will the virtio-win.{iso,vfd} and {ovirt,rhev}-tools-setup.iso files be distributed in the build(s) used for the next oVirt release? If not where should we be directing users to get them?

setting target release to current version for consideration and review. please do not push non-RFE bugs to an undefined target release to make sure bugs are reviewed for relevancy, fix, closure, etc.
