Description Jiri Belka 2013-06-17 06:16:43 EDT
Description of problem:
BZ972739 introduces/correct TZs handling but there's issue when one defines a value which is not valid TZ. Instead of showing default fallback value in UI dialog, there's 'default: null'.

# rhevm-config -g DefaultWindowsTimeZone
DefaultWindowsTimeZone: Europe/Prague version: general

this shows mentioned - default:null

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. set some stupid value as TZ
2. check Vm dialog in Admin portal

Actual results:
defualt: null

Expected results:
default: (GMT) GMT Standard Time

Comment 1 Jiri Belka 2013-06-25 08:55:40 EDT
FYI (sf18.1) I tried to update the DB directly and I set time_zone for a vm to 'foobar'. In UI, TZ value is empty and the text box is white (thus it means, there is no 'default:...' in the text box). Although when starting such VM, its TZ is set to GMT for qemu-kvm process:

# ps ax | grep '[q]emu-kvm.*w2k3-02' | sed 's/ /\n/g;' | egrep "^w2k|^base"

# egrep "<name>|adjustment" /var/log/vdsm/vdsm.log | tail -n2
        <clock adjustment="0" offset="variable">

So maybe the UI should check if values in the DB are valid...

TZ value has 'defualt:null' in UI when such VM is down.
TZ value has no value in UI when such VM is running.
