“Image Locked” status in ovirt/RHEV-M GUI

This is just an informational note :


As you know, it is possible to perform lots of operations on virtual machines through ovirt/rhev-m gui.. Before performing such operations, the VM storage has to be locked to avoid further damage/data corruption.. That said, all storage operations, such as create/delete VM/Template/Snapshot, will lock the VM image to perform the same. The storage operations (ex: snapshot ) depends the VM disk image size and the data on it. The time needed to perform these operations¬† vary.¬† So you may see “image locked” status on this time.. If the “VM” is continuing in “Image Locked” status for long time ( It depend on the operation) it could be something wrong with it, need to analyse further..
