OpenStack Compute (Nova)

Rescue Mode

Registered by Jesse Andrews on 2010-09-03

Develop a feature to allow users to fix file system and configuration errors by: shutting down VM, creating new a VM with rescue image with random password as primary and customer VM disk as secondary.

This would not have to connect to console mode as the slice would have the same networking configuration as the “broken” slice and the only difference would be a new root/admin password and the secondary drive attached. This is just a new slice, with the old disk attached. On teardown, replace the 2nd disk as the primary.
