             Summary: [VMWare] Support OVA files with multiple disks for templates and uploaded
volumes
                 Key: CLOUDSTACK-4757
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/CLOUDSTACK-4757
             Project: CloudStack
          Issue Type: Improvement
      Security Level: Public (Anyone can view this level - this is the default.)
          Components: Storage Controller
    Affects Versions: Future
            Reporter: Likitha Shetty
            Assignee: Likitha Shetty
             Fix For: Future


Currently, Cloudstack only supports Template creation based on OVA files containing a single
disk. If a user creates a template from a OVA file containing more than 1 disk and launches
an instance using this template, only the first disk is attached to the new instance and other
disks are ignored. Similarly with uploaded volumes, attaching an uploaded volume that contains
multiple disks to a VM will result in only one VMDK to being attached to the VM.

This behavior needs to be improved in VMWare to support OVA files with multiple disks for
both uploaded volumes and templates. i.e. If a user creates a template from a OVA file containing
more than 1 disk and launches an instance using this template, the first disk should be attached
to the new instance as the ROOT disk and volumes should be created based on other VMDK disks
in the OVA file and should be attached to the instance.
