Subject RE: customising the ROOT disk

Not that I'm recommending or endorsing this method but we have done it in the past.  Stop the
instance, resize the root volume on your hypervisor directly (this process varies based on
the hypervisor and storage method used), adjust the size to match in the CloudStack database
(specifically in the volumes table), and start the instance.

true. you can do that if you have LVM or Volume manager in windows. But you have to be careful.
If that volume gets deleted out from under the VM, your VM is pretty much dead.

From  storage tab and create a data disk with the required size, assign it to the VM and then
increase the root volume group.

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.
