webadmin: there is no information presented on a direct lun once we create it
Last modified: 2016-02-10 11:56:43 EST
Created attachment 592685 [details]
Description of problem:
when we create a direct lun the disk is shown with N/A on the following fields: Storage domain, Allocation, Status, Creation date.
when we press the edit tab we also do not see no information on the lun
and we also do not have any information on the lun in the disks main tab
as a result, if I add a large number of direct luns (lets say I work only with direct luns and I have 200 vm's) I have no way of knowing what lun I added to each vm.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. create a direct lun
2. look at the lun under the disks sub tab (in vm's)
3. press the edit button
4. look at the disk in main disks tab
there is no information on the lun
we should have information on the lun.
Additional info: screen shots
The fields are not applicable, that's why they appear as N/A:
Storage domain - The luns are external and not a part of a storage domain
Allocation - There is no allocation type as preallocated/thin provision, those are actual disks
Status - No status is available, we are not managing the disks
Creation date - This info is not relevant for lun disks
of course they are not.
but edit disk should be showing information which they are not
reopening bug since we need to show some info for direct luns
Which info should be shown there? All fields are irrelevant or not available...
Tal, if I have a 100 vm's and I want to add a direct lun to each, once I did, how can I tell anything about the lun? how can I tell which lun I added to each vm, or any basic information on it for that matter? not having any info will make direct luns very hard to manage.
please speak to Ayal and PM's and decide on the course of action for this,
but this is most defiantly a bug.
Setting needinfo on PM - I feel the design is a bit lacking here. I understand why there's no information currently for the direct lun disks they don't correspond to current displayed fields - but clearly there has to be.

There is no question about it.
Currently the biggest problem here is as you say that the displayed fields are totally irrelevant to a LUN.
In the sub tab we will display the LUN info, however, as long as we have the abstraction that both regular disks and LUNs are treated the same way we will not be able to show info in the main tab.
Ayal, what options do we have to display at least the wwid?
