OpenStack Compute (Nova)

Support for file injection during instance creation

Registered by Eric Day on 2010-10-25

See http://docs.rackspacecloud.com/servers/api/cs-bindguide-latest.pdf page 24. This lets you specify files (e.g. /etc/banner.txt) that should be placed on the server to customize its image.

gundlach: (Do we want to support this? I thought I heard an argument about whether we wanted to support injecting files into images or not.) eday: I think we have to since the Rackspace API should be 100% supported.

Whiteboard

This blueprint has been superseded by https://blueprints.launchpad.net/nova/+spec/xs-fileinject, which allows for file injection both at instance creation (for feature parity with the current Rackspace API) as well as at any other time that such an action would be required.
