Subject Re: deployVm with data disk
Date Fri, 10 Jan 2014 05:53:19 GMT
Now that you mention it, I think CS does get confused about this. I may
have seen this last week.

The way it works (depending on if you're using an ISO or a template), CS
acts in a non-intuitive way. In one case (I can't remember if this is for
ISOs or templates), you pick a Compute Offering and a Disk Offering, but
the Compute Offering is really only used for non-storage parameters whereas
the Disk Offering is used to determine how large to make the disk, etc. If
the storage tags are the same (for the CO and DO), it works; otherwise, it

I believe I wrote a note to myself to log a bug for this. It appears you've
stumbled upon it, though, already.
