Description Andrew Cathrow 2012-07-09 08:35:12 UTC
Allow VM to be edited while still running, with changes queued up to be applied when VM is next started

Comment 1 Yaniv Kaul 2012-07-09 08:45:36 UTC
Note that you actually want VDSM and friends (libvirt) to catch a reboot and turn it into shutdown and re-launch QEMU. This will allow an admin to (for example) increase the VM's memory and tell the user to reboot the VM whenever he's ready to do it and he'll get his updated parameters. VDSM will catch the reboot and turn it into shutdown, get the new parameters (memory) and re-launch the VM.
