Changing the "Shareable" Flag on a Physical Disk Attached to a Running VM Does not Change vm.cfg of the VM in the Repository
Last updated on MARCH 14, 2018
Applies to:Oracle VM - Version 3.4.4 and later
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.
