All, I recently tried to used the OVA export/import functionality. It seems I misunderstood the intentions. I expected OVA export/import to be reciprocal functionalities. I expected what we export as OVA to be importable as OVA in ovirt.
What I have found is the following: * It seems OVA export does export an OVA, though the format is not spec compliant * We use 'disk/' in the HostResource xml field instead of '/disk/' for example in the ovf. * It seems OVA import is intended specifically for VMWare OVA's? * I thought I read about export domains being deprecated, and incorrectly assumed the recently added OVA export/import was to make things better for one off import/export. Can anyone clarify the following: * Is OVA import really just VMWare OVA's? * Are we really not spec compliant with the OVA/OVF format as my example above shows? OR do I misunderstand something? * After spending my time yesterday, I recall now that the deprecation of export domain is in favor of detaching and re-attaching ANY data domain. * What is the purpose of our OVA export if we ourselves indeed cannot import our own OVA? Or can you tell me how we import our own if I'm wrong. Please feel free to overshare details :), as any context will help prevent more confusion on my part. ~Kyle _______________________________________________ Users mailing list -- email@example.com To unsubscribe send an email to users-le...@ovirt.org Privacy Statement: https://www.ovirt.org/site/privacy-policy/ oVirt Code of Conduct: https://www.ovirt.org/community/about/community-guidelines/ List Archives: https://firstname.lastname@example.org/message/MYWHJF4ZJS4VSJ2RWBSYDPPOWTI6VWW5/
