Hi everyone

I have a little question.

When i create a new instance, it has 2 gb on a disk

root@controller:~# ssh ubuntu@ Welcome to Ubuntu 12.04.1 LTS (GNU/Linux 3.2.0-36-virtual x86_64)

  • Documentation:

    System information as of Sat Feb 2 19:27:34 UTC 2013

    System load: 0.0 Processes: 59 Usage of /: 43.8% of 1.96GB

ubuntu@vm2:~$ df -h Filesystem Size Used Avail Use% Mounted on /dev/vda1 2.0G 880M 1.1G 47% / udev 242M 8.0K 242M 1% /dev tmpfs 99M 212K 99M 1% /run none 5.0M 0 5.0M 0% /run/lock none 246M 0 246M 0% /run/shm

How can increase capacity on the disk by default?

Sorry for beginner question. I read about flavors where I can change the values of cpu, ram and disk. Its clear now.

Thanks for your answer.

This is setup by the flavor you chose when running "nova boot", based on what you describe here it doesn't sound like you're using/attaching a Cinder volume in this case.

You can get info on Flavors using "nova flavor-list" and it's also possible to create custom flavors. Teh Disk column is what you'll be interested in here.
