Subject [jira] [Commented] (CLOUDSTACK-670) Configurable setting to use linked clones or not on VMware
Date Thu, 17 Jan 2013 14:24:23 GMT


Hari Kannan commented on CLOUDSTACK-670:

Hi Tamas,

The way I envision this is as follows - when a compute service offering is created, admin
can force this offering to be linked clone (or force this to be full clone). If he does this,
the end user has no choice - he will get what the admin decided. Alternatively, the admin
can leave the choice open - the end user has to make one choice, whichever he chooses is OK.

This method is very similar to the storage offering we have today. The admin decides the storage
size - if he does, end user doesnt get to pick. Alternative, the admin can create an offering
where he will force the end user to specify a size.

Does that make things a bit clearer?
