Subject Re: Resetting a VM is broken?
Date Thu, 20 Mar 2014 19:19:19 GMT
I was just using what was suggested earlier in the thread (I’m not really familiar with the
feature); if that is incorrect then I can change it to say,

“Warning: this action is irreversible. If you continue you may lose data. Please confirm
that you would like to proceed.”

this mean? To me it sounds like the VM gets re-instantiated from template and the "current"
root disk will be attached as a volume, in addition to a _new_ root disk. This is not what
is happening.
