Oracle VM 3.4.x : OVM Manager Misinterprets on_crash parameter in vm.cfg upon Refreshing Repository
Last updated on MAY 07, 2017
Applies to:Oracle VM - Version 3.4.1 to 3.4.2 [Release OVM34]
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.
