Windows Server support

asked 2013-02-07 20:22:01 -0500


I want to use Heat for Windows Server instances provisioning and configuration. Is it possible with existing version of the Heat? If not, when to expect a Windows Server support?

Thanks, Georgy

Heat does not currently have any support for Windows instances - although it could probably launch a windows instance using an image from glance

We do not have support for the in-instance tools (heat-cfntools) on windows, nor have we done any testing of the windows cloud-init which would be required to allow customization of the instance once launched.

There is a blueprint to investigate adding support for windows instances, but there is not anyone currently assigned to it, and we are not working on delivering it for the Grizzly release cycle:

If this feature proves important to enough users (or potential users), I guess we may decide to look at it during the H development cycle.
