VM Template UI: Keep custom XML edits when saving in template view.

Recommended Posts

Currently I have hand edited options at the end of my VM XML config, as well as a manually selected network model `<model type='vmxnet3'/>`


    <qemu:arg value='one'/>
    <qemu:arg value='two'/>
    <qemu:arg value='three'/>
    <qemu:arg value='four'/>


Could the Template editor keep these custom edits by offering an editable field in the template to add <qemu:commandline>, and also offer a dropdown for the network card to allow selecting a model?


Thank you in advanced :)

Will look into this, but no guarantees when/if it becomes available.



This would really help with making edits to macOS VM templates :)

Should be an easy win for LT on this one. Doesn't sound too hard and man would it make it WAY more convenient for us who use custom XML to do stuff with our VMs. BIG ol' +1 from this guy 👍👍

This would be very useful!


As a workaround, you can use VIRT-Manager docker to make edits. It's non-destructive on edit. It's not as tailored to unRaid though, but does provide more options via UI - which allows you to easily break stuff.

Another possibility that might be reasonable to implement is to have a field in the form view where you can enter a custom XML fragment that is to always be present in the generated XML.
