[one-users] [RFC] Release 1.4 - Multiuser support

Dear OpenNebula-Team,

if you use onehost disable, it just changes the flag of the host, so that
no other vms are deployed on it.
I would suggest to change this, or add another command, that migrates all
vms on that specified host to other hosts, so as an cluster administrator
I can take a host out of the system to take it down for maintenance with
one command (so that I do not have to check the onevm list, which vms are
on that machine, and move them one after each other).

The other suggestions come from my last mails, thanks for your fast
response Ruben.

Best regards,

current version

not yet

> This message is to discuss:
> ========================
> Different users will be able to submit and control VMs, each user will
be able
> only to control its own VMs. Based on this multi-user support we will be
> to:
>  * Build priority scheduling policies
>  * Set user capacity quotas
>  * Report per-user accounting information
> Although we plan to support simultaneous users, low-level hypervisor
> operations
> will be performed with the oneadmin account. In this way the
configuration of
> the cluster remains easy and scalable.
> Our first approach to authentication is based in plain Unix accounts.
