History

#1 Updated by Dominic Cleal almost 6 years ago

  • Subject changed from cannot change the HardDisk name when provisioning a vm for vmware compute resource to Cannot change the disk name when provisioning a VMware host
  • Category changed from Compute resources to Compute resources - VMware

Using image or network provisioning? The two methods create VMs in very different ways.

#2 Updated by Angelo Lisco over 5 years ago

Working in a big vmware environment, I can tell you that there is no way to customize the HDD name of a VM on the VMware side.
I know this is possible in RHEV/Ovirt (and maybe other CR managed by fog) but not in VMware.
So, this bug should be modified to something like "Disable volume name customization when a VMware CR is choosen".
