Paravirtualized virtual machines not being able to perform autoinstallations in provisioning tab
This document (000019846) is provided subject to the disclaimer at the end of this document.
The patch will not fix the issue for existing clients, rather only for new ones. In order to resolve the problem in existing SUSE Manager clients, a small script will need to be run. This will be explained in detail in the "additional information" section.
"VirtualPC" is an unknown type of virtualization to SUSE Manager. It was added with the patch.
INSERT INTO rhnVirtualInstanceType (id, name, label) SELECT sequence_nextval('rhn_vit_id_seq'), 'VirtualPC', 'virtualpc' FROM dual WHERE NOT EXISTS(select 1 from rhnVirtualInstanceType WHERE label='virtualpc');It can be applied by simply running:
spacewalk-sql 003-add-virtual-instance-type.sqlLastly, a hardware refresh will be needed on each of the previously existing para-virtualized servers (in SUSE Manager web-UI, after selecting the system, navigating to "Details", "Hardware" and then clicking on "Schedule Hardware Refresh").
