Creating an instance with a specified name, or renaming an instance name after it got created?

by Franck Dernoncourt   Last Updated August 09, 2018 22:00 PM

I created 4 instances on OpenStack using euca-run-instances -k Franck -n 4 ami-00000023f.

The created instances have the following instance names (as listed on OpenStack's Horizon web interface)

  • Server b00b1b04-e9f9-4582-86ca-f5773a465f42-b00b1b04-e9f9-4582-86ca-f5773a465f42
  • Server 4d765b51-0511-474c-98f0-ef6199a23c7f-4d765b51-0511-474c-98f0-ef6199a23c7f
  • Server 378964ac-630e-4490-b738-383bed6bacb1-378964ac-630e-4490-b738-383bed6bacb1
  • Server b00b1b04-e9f9-4582-86ca-f5773a465f42-b00b1b04-e9f9-4582-86ca-f5773a465f42

Is there any way to create an instance with a specified name, or to rename an instance name after it got created?
