Hi,

I have an instance that I have loaded some software on and I would like to know the best way to get a snapshot of this instance and save it to a runnable image. I'm running on Ubuntu server with the KVM hypervisor. I've been trying to use the 'euca-bundle-vol' utility and have been able to create and save an image, but it won't run when trying to instanciate it using 'euca-run-instances'. I've associated a kernel with it and then observed the output of the console. The kernel panics saying 'No init found'. Not sure where to go from here.

Thanks in advance for advice! Don

nova image-create is your best bet here. That will automatically snapshot your image and store it into glance.
