Wow, seems like a lot of work. Every time I update the master image, I would have to snapshot twice?
What if I create a pool with the 4gb master image and manually change the machines in the pool to 2GB. If I recompose, would they go back to 4GB?
So when I updated my master image (monthly), the current master image is 2CPU/4GB. I should shutdown and take a snapshot. Then change to 1CPU/2GB and snapshot again. I don't think I have to reboot the VM, since it will be rebooted during recompose.
Is there a better way, anyone do anything similar?
I would prefer to have 2 images with different Memory settings. During the life time of the Maste Image, there will be multiple snapshots, refresh and recompose. It will make things difficult for you to manage with different memory settings.
Basic design principal - keep things simple !!!
I really cant believe there is no better way to do this.
I dread having to have two master images (or snapshots) just to have two different memory configurations.
The only thing different between these two pools is the memory.
Anyone out there do anything similar?
