Description Alon Bar-Lev 2013-08-15 08:09:43 UTC

rhevm- prefix were the prefix of command-line utilities before the upstream ovirt-engine was introduced.

Then all utilities where renamed to engine- prefix while keeping backward compatibility using symlinks.

[BTW: the choice of engine- and not ovirt-engine- or ovirt- was probably not wise as it is too generic].

There is no reason to keep the legacy names within documentation, so please rename all references of rhevm- to engine- to use the upstream terms, so we can remove the rhevm- prefix in future.


Comment 1 Alon Bar-Lev 2013-08-15 08:15:13 UTC
Now I can also see that the rhevm string is used as service, this is not true for a while... should be ovirt-engine.

Comment 2 Tim Hildred 2013-10-28 00:04:03 UTC
Reassigning to Jodi Biddle ( as I am no longer working on Red Hat Enterprise Virtualization documentation.
