Subject ISO/Template Registration - OS Type Dropdown List
Date Fri, 25 Oct 2013 06:10:45 GMT

To register a ISO or a template, one must choose the operating system represented
by the template/ISO from the “OS Type” drop down list. If the “Type” is not listed,
one must choose “other".

However, the “OS Type” list is hypervisor dependent. For example, FreeBSD is not a
supported type for XenServer and neither is Apple Mac OS X. But the full list is
presented anyway. LXC also won’t support most types.

Many a times users have chosen an OS Type only to have ISO creation fail on XenServer.

It would be nice if CloudStack would show a filtered list depending on the hypervisor
for ISO/Template registration.

I have filed an RFE
