Why RHV is showing incorrect logical device name for the disks after upgrade to 4.3

Solution Verified - Updated -


  • After upgrading the environment to 4.3, the logical device name for the disks in RHV is showing partition name (/dev/vda1) instead of the device name (/dev/vda).
  • Disks without mounted file-system have no logical name displayed in RHV.
