Subject RE: ACS 4.4.0 - Xenserver OS Templates
Date Mon, 03 Nov 2014 16:30:01 GMT
Well not all of us have 10Gb networking and when copying the templates from secondary to primary
the smaller the disk the faster it get to the customer. Resizing the disk on my san will be
a lot faster than on my nfs server. I'm not sure why no one is really interested in it. I
mean one template for all HD sizes sounds great as I don't have to create and maintain lots
of different sizes. Also I would be able to bill by resource usages on the HD's just like
ram and cpu and network. My Cloudstack is working just fine and we are ready to deploy but
creating 64 different images to me doesn't sound fun.

Is password reset and hostname set working with these templates?

Check for templates, they're mostly 8GB in size, with the hope root resize will
become available across all HVs; though people do not seem very interested in it.
What work around do you mean for linux and freebsd?
