Description Moti Asayag 2013-08-22 09:18:40 EDT
Description of problem:
Currently, the AddVm command creates a Vm without any interfaces.
AddVmFromTemplate creates the Vm with the exact interfaces as exist on the template. However, if the vnic profiles/networks are no longer exist, the nic will be created not attached to any network and a UpdateVmInterface command should be follow to adjust the vnic to the required one.
This can be avoided by allowing the AddVm and AddVmFromTemplate to provide a list of interfaces that the VM should be created with.

The can-do-action of the AddVm/AddVmFromTemplate should validate the correctness of the nics.

This is needed in order to run automation for Predictable_vNIC_Order.

Another use-case for this RFE was brought up by ovirt-foreman integration:

Comment 8 Yevgeny Zaspitsky 2015-07-07 11:20:16 EDT
The RFE is intended to provide a REST-API user a way to create a VM with predictable vNIC order. The ${header} is one of the available solutions for the problem. However REST-API maintainers are against this approach, so the implemented solution is to allow the REST-API user to invoke "reordermacaddresses" action explicitly.

Patch https://gerrit.ovirt.org/#/c/43250/ is already merged in 3.6, and ready for verification.

Yaniv, Yevgeny according to comment 8 above ^^ the summary of this RFE should be changed(origin summary not relevant). Please change it accordingly, thanks.

AFAIK either Bugzilla doesn't allow updating a submitted description/comment or I do nt have permission to do that.
