Description Neha Chugh 2017-11-08 07:37:24 UTC
Description of problem:
By using Dependent parameter in add_disk method doesn't work for Vspere 6.0 though it works for Vsphere 6.5
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
cloudforms 4.2

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Prepare a custom method to add the disk in persistent mode by using below code 
2. vmhost.add_disk("[#{}]", real_size, {:dependent => true})
3. The dependent parameter doesn't work but it creates independent persistent mode of disk.

Actual results:

The dependent parameter doesn't work but it creates independent persistent mode of disk.

Expected results:

it should create persistent disk.

Additional info:

Via "Reconfigure VM" option, it is able to add disk in dependent peristent mode manually but not through automate method.
Also, the same code works for Vsphere 6.5 but not for Vsphere 6.0. Customer cannot upgrade the vmware version so looking for the workaround.

Additional logging for vm.add_disk

This adds additional logging to add_disk so that we can see the options passed in.

1. scp 5713_add_disk_logging.tar.gz to /var/www/miq/vmdb
2. make a backup copy of app/models/vm_or_template/operations/configuration.rb and app/models/manageiq/providers/vmware/infra_manager.rb
3. tar xfz 5713_add_disk_logging.tar.gz
4. systemctl restart evmserverd

The log lines will look like this:

MIQ(ManageIQ::Providers::Vmware::InfraManager::Vm#add_disk) ManageIQ::Providers::Vmware::InfraManager::Vm#add_disk: disk_name: [[NFS Share] ag_test_2/ag_test_2-3.vmdk] disk_size_mb: [300] options: [{:persistent=>true, :dependent=>true, :thin=>true}]
MIQ(ManageIQ::Providers::Vmware::InfraManager#vm_add_disk) ManageIQ::Providers::Vmware::InfraManager#vm_add_disk: VM [24] [ag_test_2] options: {:user_event=>"Console Request Action [vm_add_disk], VM [ag_test_2]", :diskName=>"[NFS Share] ag_test_2/ag_test_2-3.vmdk", :diskSize=>300, :thinProvisioned=>nil, :dependent=>true, :persistent=>true, :bootable=>nil, :datastore=>nil, :interface=>nil}

This will tell us exactly what options the add_disk method is being invoked with

Comment 17 Greg McCullough 2017-11-13 16:59:46 UTC
Neha - The ability to pass the options through automate was added to the 5.7 release on March 16th in PR

The test appliance you are using has a build of which is almost 1 month before.

Looks like they will need to a later build that contains the PR changes referenced above.
