Wishlist: Multi Compute Node and Horizon

asked 2013-05-08 19:18:20 -0500


I came across a limitation in Openstack Horizon dashboard while working on multi compute node in Grizzly. While we can specify the location [Compute node name]of a newly created VM instance in command line [using --availability-zone option], there is no such option in dashboard to select the compute node where the VMs should be created.

Basically a extra text box/pulldown menu for selecting the compute node when a VM instance is launched would be better.

Regards, Novel

There should also have an option for selecting the compute node where a VM instance is migrated to.

As of now, it is taken care by nova-scheduler and randomly chose the available zones according to some algorithms. Hope this could be resolved soon
