Subject RE: customising the ROOT disk
Date Fri, 15 Feb 2013 20:22:19 GMT
The size of the root disk is set based on the template, and it can't be changed.  This has
to do with the fact that new root volumes created from a template are actually created as
a writable snapshot of the template.  This is done to save space and also to create the VM
faster, but the penalty is that all instances created from a template share the same size
root volume.

Subject: customising the ROOT disk


When I'm creating a new instance is there a way to specify the size of 
the ROOT disk? I see it uses the template's size (which in my case is 
tiny) and I need to have it increased.
