Oracle VM 3.4.x : OVM Manager Misinterprets on_crash parameter in vm.cfg upon Refreshing Repository (Doc ID 2214836.1)

Last updated on FEBRUARY 03, 2019

Applies to:

Oracle VM - Version 3.4.1 to 3.4.2 [Release OVM34]
Oracle Cloud Infrastructure - Version N/A and later
Linux x86-64


While vm.cfg contains on_crash = 'coredump-restart', refreshing repository causes OVM Manager to mis-interpret VM's 'Restart Action On Crash:' as "Stop After Dump", while actual vm.cfg remains 'coredump-restart'.  Likewise, if on_crash has its value 'destroy', then refreshing repository causes OVM Manager to show VM's 'Restart Action On Crash:' to "Stop after Dump" as well.  If on_crash is set to 'restart' or 'coredump-destroy', showing VM's 'Restart Action On Crash:' as  'stop after dump' which is ok.

Such issue could be observed if a VM is recently imported from the template, or if Oracle VM is upgraded from 3.3 or earlier versions.
