Can we rename a instance_name for VM with our own name?

asked 2012-10-21 11:29:42 -0500

When we boot a vm it is mapped with the instance_name i.e., instance-00000029 , can't we rename this with our own name, so that this would appear in kvm or esx as the display_name

Sorry, Openstack doesn't support the action. Every instance in openstack has it's own name, but not written in libvirt. The name is just shown in nova.
