Description Barak Korren 2016-08-02 08:08:11 UTC
oVirt has a built-in feature for pulling VM images from a Glance image server.
Right now, oVirt only supports pulling QCOW2 disk images into data storage domains.
Since Glance can also store ISO images, It would be useful if oVirt could pull such ISO images into ISO storage domains.

Example use case for this - distribute the guest tools ISOs through glance.ovirt.org which is configured by default on all oVirt instances.

Comment 1 Yaniv Kaul 2016-08-03 01:43:25 UTC
I strongly prefer via the image uploader, which should support ISOs and remote URIs in 4.1.

Comment 2 Barak Korren 2016-08-03 06:28:10 UTC
The image uploader is great. 

But using it for something we are supposed to _provide_ is cumbersome - the user will have to:
1. Find somewhere to download the ISOs from
2. Copy the URL
3. Paste it to oVirt

As opposed to just selecting from a list inside the ovirt UI.

Closing old RFEs.
If relevant, please re-open and explain why.
As always- patches are welcomed!
