Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 868395
Windows Client: Spice Option: Pass Ctrl-Alt-Del to virtual machine is grayed out
Last modified: 2013-06-11 05:21:59 EDT
Description of problem:
For the Power User Portal or User Portal console spice options, for a Windows client, the option to Pass Ctrl-Alt-Del to virtual machine is checked and grayed out. For a RHEL client, the option is available. Is there a reason for this? If there is a reason for not giving the user this option, why even show the option grayed out, it would be better to not have it at all since it isn't an option.
*Tested on Windows 7 client and RHEL
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
RHEVM 3.1 si20
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Go to the RHEVM user portal (Basic or Extended)
2. Go to console options
Pass Ctrl-Alt-Del to virtual machine is checked and grayed out.
Pass Ctrl-Alt-Del to virtual machine is an option that can be modified
can you please just confirm on windows os the checkbox is in fact checked? It should not be. Grayed out is correct. It's intended to give you a hint when you mouse over that this is not supported on Windows platform.
Yes, on both Windows clients that I tested, I see it checked and grayed out. The hover message does say: Not supported for this client OS, which I did not notice before. I will attach a screenshot.

Screenshot of Win 7 client showing Ctrl_Alt_Del option checked
So I'd propose to address just the checkbox, it should be unchecked and grayed out.
Doesn't seem urgent to me and I'd prefer to not to risk breaking anything, so I propose a fix for 3.2

hm, I wonder why it should be unchecked....as per bug 928862 it should be actually send as enabled.
it has to be unchecked because otherwise if you press ctrl+alt+del both the client and guest receives them (we had an issue with it recently: https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=918650)
3.2 has been released
