I'd be interested to know when you need to hack it, which in most normal
flows shouldn't be needed?
I was running oVirt 3.2 w/ POSIXFS storage and Gluster. After 3.3 came
out, I exported a few VMs, and imported them into a GlusterFS domain on
3.3. After lots of trouble w/ that domain type, I exported the VMs
again, blew away that GlusterFS data center, made a new POSIXFS data
center, and went to re-import them. oVirt told me no, there were already
disks in the system with these names, and I'd have to clone then
I went ahead and cloned, even though that's a bit less convenient, and
required some config file fiddling to deal with the changed MAC address,
but it's times like these when I feel a desire to crack the DB, if not
to change things, then to figure out what ovirt thinks is happening.
