Subject [jira] [Created] (CLOUDSTACK-4957) ISO/Template registration "OS Type" drop down list should be depend on hypervisor support
Date Fri, 25 Oct 2013 06:09:30 GMT
Shanker Balan created CLOUDSTACK-4957:
-----------------------------------------

             Summary: ISO/Template registration "OS Type" drop down list should be depend
on hypervisor support
                 Key: CLOUDSTACK-4957
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/CLOUDSTACK-4957
             Project: CloudStack
          Issue Type: Improvement
      Security Level: Public (Anyone can view this level - this is the default.)
          Components: UI
    Affects Versions: 4.2.0
            Reporter: Shanker Balan
            Priority: Minor


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
won't support non-Linux templates either.

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

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