Hi Nicolás, I assume that the host these VMs are running on is empty in the webadmin, right? if that is the case then you've probably hit . Changing their status to up is not the way to go since these VMs will not be monitored. Yes, there is no other way to resolve it other than changing the DB but the change should be to update run_on_vds field of these VMs to the host you know they are running on. Their status will then be updates in 15 sec.  https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=1354494 Arik. > > Thanks. > > Nicolás > > _______________________________________________ > Users mailing list > Users@ovirt.org > http://lists.ovirt.org/mailman/listinfo/users > _______________________________________________ Users mailing list Users@ovirt.org http://lists.ovirt.org/mailman/listinfo/users
