Subject: RE: Reimage Instance

Hi,

It is not currently supported, but have no clue whether it will be
supported later or not.
CS is using linked in clones so you just cannot simply replace the template
the VM is based on because the VMs ROOT volume depends on it.
To “re-image” basically you’d need to destroy the VM with its disks then
re-deploy it with the new template but because it is a new VM new IP will
be allocated for it.
If you want the new VM with a specific (previous) IP address you’ll need to
manually edit the database.

Regards

I have used every public cloud out there and everyone will allow a reimage
of a VM from a template. Is this a feature that will fundamentally not be
supported Cloudstack, or just one that isnt supported currently?

Hi,

I’m using advanced vlan isolated networking with dhcp.
For me the internal IPs do not matter as the public IP belongs to the
account and the virtual router will sort out the rest.

Via the GUI you cannot preserve IPs but manually via the database you can
change what IP belongs to what VM.

My recovery procedure is to deploy a brand new VM, re-attach the data
volume to it and update the firewall/static-nat rules if any to the new VM.

How do you preserve hostname and IP address if you want to spin a box up
from scratch again....assuming you are using advanced networking and dhcp?

Hi,

I don’t think there is.
You can change the template of your VM by manually editing the database and
then shut it down and restart it.
This way at the next start CS will re-deploy the new template for the VM
and start it.

Please be aware this is not recommended in production due to this method
will confuse the storage clean-up scripts and will kill your live VM in
case the old template it was based on no longer required.
It is always recommended to create a new VM instance with the new template.

Subject: Reimage Instance

Is there a way through the Cloudstack UI, to respin an already active
instance with a new template? I see a way in the API, but nothing in the UI.
