Use of Browser Refresh Whilst in OVM Manager Wizard Leaves Job Pending
Last updated on MARCH 08, 2017
Applies to:Oracle VM - Version 3.1.1 to 3.1.1 [Release OVM31]
When using the wizard for a multi-stage operation - e.g. creating a virtual machine from an ISO where several prompts are issued to define details - after the first prompt is complete and the "next" button has been pushed, a job is created in status "pending". If the browser refresh ("reload page") is then used at any stage prior to the wizard finishing, and the "leave page" option then selected, the wizard is terminated but session remains, and the job remains in pending status.
If the same operation is then immediately attempted, the wizard will continue where it left off, and the operation can be completed.
However, if some other operation is attempted that requires a job to be created, job creation will fail with error:
OVMAPI_5013E Illegal to create a job within another job's transaction context
as will any subsequent attempt to resume the operation for which the job is still pending.
