Description Maor 2017-11-28 21:54:40 UTC
Description of problem:
On a DR site to site scenario we fail over and fail back the engine setup syncing between the storage domains replications.
Since export storage domain can not be force detach, it can not be re-attach  to the setup without adjusting its meta data (see

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Add an export storage domain to the setup
2. Make the export domain replicated to another storage domain (or use the existing one)
3. Try to fail over the setup and attach the export storage domain from oVirt 

Actual results:
Attaching the export domain will fail since the metadata consists the pool uuid

Expected results:
We should add an ansible script to clean the export storage domain metadata

Comment 3 Maor 2017-11-29 15:39:54 UTC
Export domain does not run any VMs, so I don't see any crucial impact if the user will manually have to attach it again, combined with the fact that we plan to make export domain obsolete and use it as a data domain, I would make it a low severity

Feel free to change if you think otherwise

Noticed now that I opened a duplicate bug on that issue, closing this one since BZ1533428 already applied with the correct product/component.
