Description Dave Johnson 2014-02-19 17:59:27 UTC
Title: Python New Example (Detach a disk from a VM)

Describe the issue:
Basically I have a direct_lun disk shared between multiple VMs.  I ran into a issue where deleting the VM deleted the entire direct_lun disk removing it from all VMs using it.  The logical step was to detach the disk but the disk object doesn't have a .detach() or .remove()... only delete which deletes it everywhere.

After a bunch of digging, I found some help with how to do this and believe it should be added as a example.

# Find the VM:
vm = api.vms.get(name="myvm")
disk = vm.disks.get(name="mylun")
# Detach the disk:
detach = ovirtsdk.xml.params.Action(detach=True)
