Description of problem:

[RFE] virt-manager cloning dialog enhancements - machine ID missing

Scenario:
  virt-manager displaying VMs located on localhost
           and displaying also VMs from remote host H (qemu+ssh)

  When user does machine clone on host H's VM he might get impression that VM will be cloned to localhost i.e. migrated to localhost which is not the case.


I thus propose to tune the cloning UI dialog the way it would be clear that in above situation the cloning will be done on host H.

In other words cloning UI dialog has to state host ID (FQDN).

Proposal:
  Add '[Cloning] hostname: <fqdn>' above Name: ...


Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
libvirt-0.9.11.7-1.fc17.x86_64
libvirt-client-0.9.11.7-1.fc17.x86_64
libvirt-daemon-0.9.11.7-1.fc17.x86_64
libvirt-daemon-config-network-0.9.11.7-1.fc17.x86_64
libvirt-daemon-config-nwfilter-0.9.11.7-1.fc17.x86_64
libvirt-python-0.9.11.7-1.fc17.x86_64
python-virtinst-0.600.3-2.fc17.noarch
qemu-kvm-1.0.1-2.fc17.x86_64
redland-virtuoso-1.0.15-1.fc17.x86_64
virt-manager-0.9.4-2.fc17.noarch
virt-manager-common-0.9.4-2.fc17.noarch
virt-viewer-0.5.3-1.fc17.x86_64
virtuoso-opensource-6.1.6-1.fc17.x86_64

How reproducible:
100%

Steps to Reproduce:
1. at least one machine created
2. start 'virt-manager'
3. right-click -> Clone...
4. try to find information what is the target machine where the cloned machine will be stored.
  
Actual results:
Cloning UI dialog do not show hostname.

Expected results:
Cloning UI dialog has to show hostname.

The user should also be able to cancel a cloning in progress.

Comment 2 Cole Robinson 2013-04-01 10:00:57 UTC
Since it's an RFE, moving to the upstream tracker.

Comment 3 Cole Robinson 2014-02-01 23:59:42 UTC
Fixed upstream now
