Subject [jira] [Updated] (CLOUDSTACK-10037) Virtual display support for VM
Date Tue, 08 Aug 2017 14:24:00 GMT

Tadas A updated CLOUDSTACK-10037:
---------------------------------
    Description: 
Hello, 
  When using ESXi you have option to go to Video Card settings on VM, and set how much virtual
displays you want to have for that VM. Would be nice to have this feature on CloudStack.

This is how we tried to get virtual displays working:
1. We modified VM settings to have 3 virtual displays on ESXi, which is controlled by ACS
but VM didn't see that setting so we only had 1 display.
2. Another thing we tried to export VM to ova file which has 3 virtual displays on our stand
alone ESXi server and imported that ova to CloudStack. To our surprise VM had two virtual
monitors out of 3, but we was having issues controlling VM over ASC remote console window,
so we had to install VMware tools of that ESXi which was behind ASC and after we did that
number of displays went to 1. 

Both ESXi servers at the moment we tested was running 5.5

It would be nice to have monitor button next to Destroy, Attach button which would let you
to set how many display you want to have and set video memory. It could be automatically predefined
by ASC system administrator so that user couldn't set more displays than administrator allows.

If we change now VM settings on ESXi to have 2 virtual displays which is controller by CloudStack,
VM only see 1 monitor, so this setting is not passed to VM.
