Description Itamar Heim 2014-01-26 11:45:36 UTC
+++ This bug was initially created as a clone of Bug #1055524 +++

In order to support we need to add the qemu-guest-agent by default to support freezing and thawing the filesystems.

The guest agent will implement a dependency on the package so it is installed when the ovirt-guest-agent is installed.

Comment 3 Jiri Belka 2014-02-06 13:49:21 UTC
Does it mean RH will improve QGA so it can do some usable things or we will have just more guest agents? :)

In QGA source there's many 'unsupported' comments for features right now.
