[ovirt-users] Console button greyed out (4.2)

Just had the same issue
@ 4.1, upgraded to 4.2(.1)
Updated cluster compatibility, then, data centre compatibility
All VMs lost their hardware (NICs (showed attached but unplugged), disks
(status changed to disabled) and console)
Our solution was simply to connect the NICs, activate the disks, then edit
the VM and set Console to headless.
Shut down the VM
Then before bringing it back up, unchecked headless in the VM
We then had to do a Run-Once which failed
Then did a normal Run.
Console was available, and all hardware came back fine.
Didn't have to delete and re-create anything (although had to perform the
above on all 70+ production hosts including our main web servers and HA
load balancers .. which wasn't fun) ...
Hope this helps someone
