On an Ovirt datastore the disk image names for the guests are named with an unfriendly UUID name. Is there any way to map that back to the human readable name given int the GUI?
It would be nice if this name was dropped in as a field in the .meta file. I see there is a DESCRIPTION= field, but it’s blank. I tried updating the description in the GUI, but it’s still blank (bug, or do I have to update something? I tried deact/activate the disk and it still didn’t update…)
I created a vdsm hook script for passing payload information (vm name)
to a virtual machine, which is placed in before_vm_start folder on my
hypervisor (CentOS 6.5).

When starting the vm the first time I can see that the vdsm script is
executed, but no additional cd drive is shown in this vm. But after
shutting down the vm and powering on again, the cd drive appears.
Here's the vdsm hook I use:
I don't really get why the payload isn't working when starting a vm the
This happen on oVirt 3.2 and 3.3.
Thanks a lot for help!
