Changing the "Shareable" Flag on a Physical Disk Attached to a Running VM Does not Change vm.cfg of the VM in the Repository

(Doc ID 2367880.1)

Last updated on MARCH 14, 2018

Applies to:

Oracle VM - Version 3.4.4 and later
Linux x86-64

Symptoms

On : 3.4.4 version, Oracle VM Manager

If one change the shareable flag, in a physical disk attached to a running VM, the vm.cfg is not updated. This doesn't happen if the VM is stopped, in this case the vm.cfg is updated.

The vm.cfg is not updated even after stopping the VM. This cause an inconsistency between OVM Manager and the repository. vm.cfg don't have the flag, but requesting "VM Config File" in OVM Manager shows the flag.
