I think something that should be taken in consider if doing that, is
that the VM which the template is created from will stay in image lock
Not necessarily. Once we get one copy of each disk down, we can
the vm and use these copies as the source of the other copies.
Also what would be the desired behaviour if few of storage domains
not be available, and will fail. (right now, if counting on the
AsyncTaskManager mechanism, the all operation of create template will be
rolled back, and the template would not be created at all.
Yes, the failure cases
need to be considered. I would think that as long
as one copy of each disk can be created then the template should
persist. If we can't create a copy of each disk then we need to roll
back and not create the template.
But in this approach how do we convey the list of failures back to the user?
