[ovirt-users] Exclamation mark on Windows guests Ovirt 3.6.5

Hi Darryl,

This drove me nuts too.  For some reason the guest drivers were missing
something (still don't know for sure).  I tried changing timezones, etc.

Finally I found the "oVirt-toolsSetup_3.6.0_0.2_master.fc22.iso"

The setup on that image worked with Windows 7 Enterprise, Windows 10
Enterprise and Windows Server 2012r2.  My exclamation marks are gone.

Good luck, Jack

Hi Darryl,

do you have an ovirt guest agent installed on your guests? If yes, could you
please check in webadmin in VM main tab -> pick your VM which show this
exclamation mark -> guest info subtab -> what is in "type" part?
