In Cactus, there was a very handy, undocumented feature that allowed you to launch a vm on a specific compute host by appending the hostname to the zone parameter:

    euca-run-instances -n $INSTANCES_PER_HOST -z nova:$HOST $AMI

This was useful for burn-in tests, to make sure every compute node was working properly. I don't think this works anymore in Essex. Is there another mechanism available?

This should still work if you are an admin.

Ah, thanks. I was using a non-admin user. Admin works great.

Thank you, Vish
