Hey Eyal,

it's really irritating that only ISOs can be imported as disks.

I had to:
1. Delete snapshot (but I really wanted to keep it)
2. Detach all disks from existing VM
3. Delete the VM
4. Import the Vm from the data domain
5. Delete the snapshot , so disks from data domain are "in sync" with the 
non-data disks
6. Attach the non-data disks to the VM

If all disks for a VM were on the same storage domain - I didn't have to wipe 
my snapshots.

Should I file a RFE in order to allow disk import for non-ISO disks ?
If I wanted to rebuild the engine and import the sotrage domains I would have 
to import the VM the first time , just to delete it and import it again - so I 
can get my VM disks from the storage...

Best Regards,
Strahil Nikolov

Hi Stranhil, 

Maybe those VMs has more disks on different data storage domains?
If so, those VMs will remain on the environment with the disks that are not 
based on the detached storage-domain.

You can try to import the VM as partial, another option is to remove the VM 
that remained in the environment but 
keep the disks so you will be able to import the VM and attach the disks to it.
