Hi :

Does anyone know if Nova compute API  support for
"boot from volume"[1]  exists yet for jcloud1.8.x?

Thanks,

To create a bootable volume from an image and launch an instance from this volume, use the --block-device parameter.

For example:

$ nova boot --flavor FLAVOR --block-device source=SOURCE,id=ID,dest=DEST,size=SIZE,shutdown=PRESERVE,bootindex=INDEX NAME
