Subject RE: [PROPOSAL] Raise cluster size limit to 16 on VMware
Date Thu, 03 Jan 2013 11:55:37 GMT
So based on the discussions would it be fair to conclude that this should be handled by adding
some column like 'max_host_per_cluster' in hypervisor_capabilities table. Currently the following
version entries are present for Vmware. For each version an appropriate value can be associated
based on the limitations/actual supported. For other HVs where this setting is not applicable
some dummy value, say (-1) can be entered.

hv_type	hv_version
VMware	default
VMware	4.0
VMware	4.1
VMware	5.0

Let me know if there is a consensus on this.

Thanks,
Koushik
