HI  Jake ,

When you would cloned the incubator-cloudstack repository , you just need to navigate to this
path within it - core/src/com/cloud/vm/ .

Hope you are able to find this.

Hi Pranav,

Thanks for the reply. I cannot seem to find the file on my management
server. Would you happen to know the full path?
I installed this cloudstack from a repository and not from source as per the official installation

Best regards,

Hey Jake ,

I think this should be very much possible but would require some effort to modify the java
code here - incubator-cloudstack/core/src/com/cloud/vm/ . This file
tries to use the StringBuilder class to generate the VM name ( instance or router VM etc)
and writing it to the db.

Subject: Custom instance names ?

Hi All,

Wondering if it is possible to include the Account Name or User Name in the instance name
that is auto-created by cloudstack 4.0 (vCenter 5).

Current naming schema -> i-50-VM
Custom naming schema -> i-50-VM-companyA   or   i-50-VM-companyA-jimsmith

Seems like it should be possible with some variables added somewhere, but not sure.

Thank you for all your help!
