Subject Re: Modifying a service offering in the cloudstack DB
Date Fri, 21 Jul 2017 01:37:38 GMT
Hi, you can actually do it thru DB, but it can lead to several
implications, like unfare resource provisioning. The better way is just
delete the offering, create the new with the same name and switch all VMs
either automatically or asking users.

Have a good day.

Dear all,

as there is no means to modify an existing Cloudstack Service Offering
neither  via Cloudstack API nor with the GUI, I’m wondering what would
happen if the CPU speed of the service offerings is changed directly in the
cloud DB (table service_offering). Does this have any impact on existing
VMs? Would this be a valid way to modify an existing Service Offering?

We did some very brief test and it seem to work fine, but before doing the
change in our production environment I’d like to know if anyone else has
done something similar?

The reason why I’m trying to do this is as follows:
In all our Service Offerings for user VMs we have set the CPU Speed to 1999
Mhz. Unfortunately, the CPUs of our most recent hosts only provide 1995
MHz, leading to the situation that no VM is deployed on these servers as
the hosts do not have the proper cpu capability (speed 1995 is provided but
1999 is required).

Cheers, Christian

PS: We’re still on Cloudstack 4.5.1
