RFE: virt-manager cloning dialog enhancements - hostname missing
Last modified: 2015-11-15 20:14:27 EST
Description of problem:
[RFE] virt-manager cloning dialog enhancements - machine ID missing
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).
Add '[Cloning] hostname: <fqdn>' above Name: ...
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
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.
Cloning UI dialog do not show hostname.
Cloning UI dialog has to show hostname.
The user should also be able to cancel a cloning in progress.
Since it's an RFE, moving to the upstream tracker.
Fixed upstream now
