I have got 2 compute nodes, and I'd like to choose in which one the instance will run. How can I do this? Maybe any parameter in "nova boot"?

Solved, first I created an aggregate zone (and It created an availability zone). Then, you can add machines to this zone. The instance can be boot on this new availability zone.

For example:
nova boot example --image 778d0d68-4e98-40a5-ad01-97ab60ca9035 --flavor 1 --availability-zone new_zone
