Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 859957
Document behavior of restart button and which providers it works for
Last modified: 2012-12-10 17:06:07 EST
Description of problem:
The restart button for applications/instances only works with Amazon EC2, but does not work for RHEV/vSphere. There is a BZ open (https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=859954) to grey the restart button out in the UI for providers that do not support the action, but we should also have a note in the documentation on which providers support restarting instances.
Actually, vsphere instances will reboot as well but require the vm tools agent installed on it. Additionally, we may want to note that the reboot is more of a reset as we are not doing a proper os guest shutdown and restart, see bug 866577.
This documentation has now been dropped to translation ahead of publication. For any further issues, please open a new a bug.
