Subject Re: Custom instance names ?
Date Fri, 25 Jan 2013 05:23:54 GMT
Hi Ahmad,

I am aware of that global setting, but the problem is I would like instance name to include
the company or user name of the account that created the instance.
 '' Global setting only allows be to add static text globally, which is not
what I am trying to do.

Thank you for your reply.

Navigate to your global settings and search for ''. There you
can append whatever you like, the default value is 'VM'. That¹s where you
get the instance name 'I-<account_id>-<vm_instance_id>-VM'. Since this is
a global, all vm's managed by the cloudstack instance will reflect this.
