Found in Releases:


After upgrading to foreman-1.4.0-0.1.RC1

I am unable to edit the VM Settings
As it gives me EC2 as type i assume something else is broken

Applying the change from #3867 fixed the display issue, but not the real problem underneath

Here some more infos from the logs

The message about VM editing is simply to say that Foreman can't change the details of existing VMs at the moment - you'll need to use vSphere itself for that. 1.3 might have given the impression that you could, but on update it wouldn't have changed anything, so we added these notices to let users know.

I'm not sure I understand the point about EC2, could you elaborate on how to reproduce this issue please?

Updated by Markus Nussdorfer about 10 years ago

thanks for clarification.
on host creation it works as expected, therefore everything is good.

about the EC2-Type, it seems that in fact it is a duplicate of #3867
to reproduce:

create new compute resource -> choose vmware as provider -> safe
in the overview the type is displayed as EC2

due to the greyed out fields i had the impression it was a different issue.

  • Priority changed from High to Normal

Thanks for the confirmation, the fix for #3867 will go out today in RC2. I'll leave this open, but as a feature request for VM editing under VMware.

Does this mean that I can't add disks to an existing VMWare instance with Foreman yet?

It's quite easy to implement this for cpus, corespersocket and memory for starters.
I've filed a PR against fog-vsphere to implement the necessary changes.
