Subject Re: root resize support in the UI
Date Sat, 29 Nov 2014 19:47:41 GMT
Vadim,

1. Only KVM for now, due to lack of interest I guess
2. The root disk value needs to be equal or larger than that of the template, otherwise you
end up with a broken disk, obviously. So go for minimal (say under 10G) templates that can
resize themselves, such as the ones at http://dl.openvm.eu ;)
3. The backend API has been supporting this since 4.4.0, it's the UI that is lagging behind
More details here https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/CLOUDSTACK-6181
