Hi Sandro,
Since this is a production environment, our upgrade project is not so quick to complete.
Are you asking because you think this database issue would be cleared by an upgrade or maybe because we could check the bug on a currently maintained version? ☺

Hi Andrea, I'm a bit curious, any reason for staying on 3.5 and not upgrading to 3.6 / 4.0 ?

Hallo all,

I’m currently unable to import/activate VM due to error above.
It has been a long series of unfortunate events.
Long story short:
- VM running on storage on iscsi failing disks
- put storage and server in maint. Shut down server
- restart server.
- server has a misconfiguration on lvm/multipath rules (not due to ovirt)
- put storage and server active
- cluster goes down. Put storage in maintenance again. Detached storage from cluster (ach! That was unfortunate).
- cluster now ok. Storage ok. Activate storage.
- trying to import VM. Ovirt replies with error in subject and attached.

How can I recover from this situation?
It would be great to recover the entire VM, but I’m more interested in disks which are in unregistered state than VM itself.

Thank you all
