Subject RE: [PROPOSAL] Configurable setting to use linked clones or not on VMware
Date Tue, 22 Jan 2013 08:59:18 GMT
Hi ,

I am planning to take the QA job for this feature. Have reviewed the functional spec and have
the following questions

1-Do admin need to set some Global parameter or/and create service offering in order to provide
this feature to user?
2-how user is going to avail  this feature  ? is it same as defined in FS ( user will get
option to choose linked /full  clone depend on service offering).
3-Any other  APIs are getting modified apart from VMCmd ?
4-Any change in DB (in FS its mentioned under investigation) ?
5-same cluster can hold full clone and linked clone ?
6-how snapshot handling is done,  is it same as in FS(Snapshots generated on VMs using full
clones also produce delta disks ) .
7-upgrade path (To be investigated)? 
8-Volume creation (To be investigated)?
9-Storage migration(To be investigated)?
