Can I create an instance with a specific name with euca2ools?

asked 2014-06-26 00:13:49 -0500

Is it possible to create an instance with a specific name with euca2ools? (instead of something like Server b00b1b04-e9f9-4582-86ca-f5773a465f42-b00b1b04-e9f9-4582-86ca-f5773a465f42 )

I'm tempted to answer with another answer (why not use novaclient?) but I'll only say that in a comment :)

Code legacy, I'll definitely switch to nova as soon as I have the opportunity :)

Thanks! Since links break, I copy here: Unfortunately, the default use of the euca commands uses the name server-<number> to identify a started instance. This is often not desirable, as many users have similar names and it will be difficult to find your own images when lots of users start images.

To fix this, you can however use the nova commands and say:$ nova rename Server-2599 $USER-2599
