Subject [jira] [Commented] (LIBCLOUD-402) Handle default partitioning change in Rackspace driver
Date Wed, 18 Sep 2013 17:51:52 GMT


Chris Krough commented on LIBCLOUD-402:

The KB article states:
On October 1st 2013, we will be adjusting the default Disk Partition option to Manual for
our Linux base images as part of our ongoing commitment to align with other OpenStack deployments
and increase portability. This change is being rolled out to all of our base Linux images,
but you will always retain control to select the Disk Partition option that best meets your

but, creating your first server with manual partitioning causes Rackspace to automatically
generate a notification (via support ticket) which includes the following bit:

{quote}Will this disrupt my automation?
Beginning on September 1st, new Linux operating system images will be uploaded (with new Image
IDs) with their default mode set to "Manual".  If you continue to use the existing Image IDs,
servers will continue to be built with Disk Config set to "Automatic".  We recommend using
the latest images (by name) when possible, so you may wish to modify your automation to pass
in the "Automatic" disk configuration when building servers if you require greater than a
20 GB root partition.

It's unclear whether the KB article is saying that they will go back and change existing images.
