Oracle VM:The Oracle VM Manager GUI Shows Old Repository After Moving A Guest To A New Repository (Doc ID 2423774.1)

Last updated on JUNE 26, 2020

Applies to:

Oracle Cloud Infrastructure - Version N/A and later
Oracle VM - Version 3.3.1 and later
Linux x86-64


The OVM Manager does not show the updated repository name after a VM guest is moved.  The old repository name is shown instead.

A CLI query does show the correct repository.

On the OVM Manager host, run the following: 

# ssh -l admin localhost -p 10000
OVM> show vm name=<vm_name>
. . .
VmDiskMapping1 = ID [ Mapping for disk...]
. . .

 Next, look up the mapping information:

OVM> show diskmapping id=<id from above output>
. . .
Virtual Disk=00Xx.img
. . .

 for those disks:

OVM> show virtualdisk name=00XX.img 

That shows the repository the disks are stored in and this value is the correct location.


 Move a VM guest to another repository.
