Fixed In Version: ovirt-node-3.0.0-6.el6
Doc Type: Bug Fix
Doc Text:
When on the Remote Storage page and configuring "iscsi initiator name", an error was generated in the UI saying "Invalid Data" if it was configured with an empty string. The iscsi initiator name doesn't allow an empty string to be used anymore, also setting "Rsyslog address" and "Netconsole address" with an empty string are not permissible and therefore no errors are produced.

Test version:

Now the iscsi initiator name didn't allow an empty, also setting "Rsyslog address" and "Netconsole address" with an empty string didn't throw an exception

so this bug has been fixed, change the status into "VERIFIED"
