Subject: Re: [Users] VMs and volumes disappearing
Thank you for your answers, but I still have some questions left ;-)

If you want, I can send you my log. I wasn't sure if that's what you meant.
I just had the same problem again.
- Stopped oVirt engine
- Checked the 'async_tasks' table. It was empty!
- Started oVirt engine
- Same set of imported VMs as last time deleted!
I thought that lingering records from the 'async_tasks' table were to
blame, but apparently, that's not the case.
Can you tell me what I need to check/do/modify/update/delete before
restarting oVirt that will keep my VMs from being deleted? (Please see
below for a note on upgrading like you suggested)
make sure you dont have records at async_tasks with vdsm_task_id of "empty guid"
- but i'm really not in favor of such hacks, this is a hack. I strongly suggest you
solve upgrade issue (please communicate with ofer on this).

I have read the thread about disappearing VMs from August and indeed it
sounds like this might me the same problem.

There are no updates, at least Yum doesn't give me any. I enabled the
beta channel just now, but that doesn't make a difference. 3.3.0-1 is
the latest version. What am I missing?
martijn@ovirt:~> sudo yum list all|grep ovirt-engine.noarch
ovirt-engine.noarch 3.3.0-1.el6 @ovirt-beta
I'll let ofer answer that.
