Thanks for using cockpit!
1) I cannot find a way to add another network device.
This feature was missing, I will be probably included in the release
two weeks from today, since skobyda just sent a PR about this today.
2) I cannot find a way to manage (view, add/remove) the sound device (so fundamental).
This feature is missing as well. We will happily add it in our todo
list, or if you want to contribute to the project I will gladly guide
you into the implementation.
3) I cannot find a way to manage (view, add/remove) the video device (so fundamental).
Same as sound devices.
4) I cannot find a way to manage (view, add/remove), well any of the virtual hardware
devices other than a hard disk drive storage device (the network device can be modified,
the cdrom, if one exists can be removed but not re-added).
Well spotted. None asked for these features yet, but keep in mind that
VM page in cockpit is under heavy development, and a lot of features
are about to be released soon. I have noted down your requests, but
you can also create issues on our GitHub repository
so that we can track
better you RFEs.
5) In "Networking" I can add a bridge (this functionality has been removed
from Virt-Manager due to the effort to maintain the code), but the bridge is not available
in Virtual Machines to be attached to a network device. This is kind of fundamental, or a
basic concept, I am so confused why not. I can use virsh to add it, but that is not the
point, the UI if it is going to create the bridge, should then add it to the list of
virtual devices, or all the user to do so. Virt-Manager used to do this, until bridge
creation was removed.
You can create a Virtual Network using this bridge and then change the
NIC source to use that Virtual Network.
6) Sometimes the virtual cdrom device is available, sometime times it is not visible. It
can only be added when the VM is created, after which you can remove it, but you can never
attach another dvd/cdrom ISO, or reattach another virtual cdrom drive.
This is missing indeed. Please create an RFE.
7) there is no way to add a floppy disk drive. A floppy disk drive can be useful for
installing specific drivers that can be loaded using floppy disks during the OS
installation. For example, virtio drivers for when creating a Windows 10 virtual machine.
8) At first there were 0 Storage Pools, but after creating the VM there were then 2
Storage Pools. I found this a little confusing at the beginning, but did not stop me from
creating a VM.
So basically when you are creating a VM for first time, there is the
case that you don't have any storage pools configured. We use
'virt-install' script to create VMs, and that will create a Storage
Pool for the destination of the VM disk.
I wonder if I am doing something incorrectly?
Most of the operations you tried to do are currently not supported
unfortunately - but definitely will be implemented in the near future.
So stay tuned and in case you are interested to help with the
implementation of some feature just come on #cockpit channel on
freenode and I will help you get started.
