Description Tim Hildred 2013-08-08 04:24:03 EDT
In previous versions of RHEV, there were two buttons you could create a VM with: New Server and New Desktop.

Now, there is only one button: New VM.

This will affect guides in 2 ways:

1) in all the places that we say "the New Server Virtual Machine window, or the New Desktop button to open the New Desktop Virtual Machine window", we simplify the sentence. We should really use conditionals here, conditionalizing the para within the step.
<para condition = 3.2>
The old version.
<para condition != 3.2>
The new version

2) Find the places, if any, where we explain why there were 2 buttons, and refactor them based on the new, single button process.

All strings that previously read "New Desktop" or "New Server" now read "New VM".

This does not necessarily mean that the RHEV docs suite is entirely clean; each figure in the books must be checked by an eyeball and cleared.

The above status message is not meant to imply that there are strings that read something like:

  Click New VM or New VM.

I manually edited each string so that it was sensible and not repetitive.
