Subject RE: Identifying a VM's ROOT disk offering via the database
Date Tue, 02 Jul 2013 17:23:06 GMT
Andy,
     For what it's worth, on my deployment that is exactly what I had to do, though it was
to specify which node the local storage for the offering would be on.  I had to create four
identical service offerings (in terms of cpu/ram) that had different storage tags.
Thanks,      David Ortiz
