Subject Changing the NIC and disk controller type permanently
Date Thu, 16 May 2019 15:12:02 GMT

This is an old topic, [1] but it looks like behaviour changed in newer
CloudStack versions.

What is the recommended procedure to change the NIC and disk controller
types of an existing VM (in stopped state)?

We used

$ cloudstack addResourceDetail "details[0].key=rootDiskController"
"details[0].value=lsisas1068" "resourcetype=UserVm" "resourceid=$id"


cloudstack addResourceDetail "details[0].key=nicAdapter"
"details[0].value=Vmxnet3" "resourcetype=UserVm" "resourceid=$id"

( cloudstack = )

This seemed to be effective for the network adapter, but not for the
disk controller. The VM was booted with the lsiscsi (LSI Logic Parallel
SCSI driver).

Any help would be much appreciated, as these settings are necessary for
booting Windows Server 201X on VMware ESX. Note: we're running ESX 5.5.
