Subject Where should a system VM image be uncompressed?
Date Wed, 26 Jun 2013 17:00:39 GMT
I noticed that the system VM template is stored in S3 as a .bz2.  E.g. as a .vhd.bz2 when using
a Hyper-V hypervisor.

Naturally, you can't run a bz2.  Nor can you make a thin copy of it, say if it's a downloaded
as a TEMPLATE to a primary storage pool.

Should it be uncompressed before it goes into S3, when it is copied from S3 to primary storage,
or when a volume is created from the TEMPLATE?
