Fixed In Version: ovirt-node-2.5.0-12.el6
Doc Type: Enhancement
Doc Text:
The edit-node command now shows the modifications to the ISO to reflect the included kmod parameters. This creates a different ISO image name for the node whenever a Red Hat Enterprise Virtualization Hypervisor image is modified for easier identification.

Description Mike Burns 2012-05-21 23:20:44 EDT
Description of problem:
when editing a RHEV-H image, a plugin needs to automatically alter the version information in the node to indicate that it is not just a base image.

This should be supported via a flag to edit-node that contains a string to be appended.


rhevh-6.3-20120521.0.el6 image

run injection tool with --name=storage_dup


In the case of multiple dups, keep appending to the end:


In the case of a missing --name (or similar) option, we should either:

1.  Fail and require
2.  figure out some smart way to automatically determine the name, maybe the name of the base rpm being installed

Some change to the version *Must* be made on *all* plugin injections
Comment 1 RHEL Product and Program Management 2012-07-10 04:22:08 EDT
This request was not resolved in time for the current release.
Red Hat invites you to ask your support representative to
propose this request, if still desired, for consideration in
the next release of Red Hat Enterprise Linux.
Comment 2 RHEL Product and Program Management 2012-07-10 21:49:24 EDT
This request was erroneously removed from consideration in Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6.4, which is currently under development.  This request will be evaluated for inclusion in Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6.4.
