OVM Manager needs to be rebuilt/reinstalled on various scenarios. Once this is done, the Manager recognizes the OVM Servers(OVS), VMs, Storage, Networks, etc and associates itself with these entities. However the Simple Names associated with these elements are lost and the Manager Web UI displays only IDs. Fortunately, the Manager creates a XML file with all the Simple Names on a daily basis. This XML file can be used to restore the Simple Names back after a rebuild/reinstall. See special notes for 3.2.
