Subject RE: 答复: instance name in vsphere?
Date Fri, 09 Aug 2013 15:36:58 GMT
We are running vsphere 5.1 and each time we define name, that name gets appended in vsphere.

For example, if I define a hostname when I go through "Add Instance" Wizard, the name that
I define under "Name" field, when deployed will be "i-4-298-my-hostname-in-acs" in vsphere.

The way we achieved this, we took a source code of 4.1 and backported the patch "CLOUDSTACK-778",
generated RPMs - and installed it.

It works without any issues and has ben in production use for the past 6 months in 3 other
companies. We've also backported support for dVS into 4.1

If you would like to give it a try, I can post the latest RPMs, or you can grab the source
code and do it yourself. Its available on http://www.github.com/serverchief/cloudsand

CloudSand edition of ACS is backward compatible to 4.2 when it comes out. You can read more
about it on www.cloudsand.com

Alternatively, you can wait for 4.2 release and all these features will be available by default.
