             Summary: VMware detaching volume fails if volume has snapshots
                 Key: CLOUDSTACK-6043
             Project: CloudStack
          Issue Type: Bug
      Security Level: Public (Anyone can view this level - this is the default.)
          Components: VMware, Volumes
    Affects Versions: 4.3.0
            Reporter: Chris Suich
            Assignee: Kelven Yang
             Fix For: 4.3.0

When detaching VMware volumes, a call is first made to the hypervisor to remove all snapshots
for that volume. After this happens, the path for the volume potentially changes, but isn't
updated in the ACS DB, which causes problems when the call is made to actually detach the

For example, if the volume has a single snapshot, then the current path would be something
like VOLUME-00001.vmdk which is a delta disk for VOLUME.vmdk. Once the snapshot is deleted,
VOLUME-00001.vmdk is coalesced into VOLUME.vmdk, which becomes the active path. However, ACS
still believes the correct path is VOLUME-00001.vmdk which causes the detach to fail.
