Select SYSTEM datastore in template

what should I set as template parameters to be able to select exact VM datastore ?
I have cluster of 3 nodes with 2 datastores (SSH and HDD). I am using Opennebula 5.


Hi Martin,

To tell the OpenNebula’s scheduler to deploy the VMs only on given SYSTEM datastore set SCHED_DS_REQUIREMENTS in the VM template the following attribute:


Using sunstone it is located in “Update VM template” -> “Scheduling” -> “Placement” -> “Datastore Requirements”. Set the “Expression” to TM_MAD=systemDatastoeName_or_ID

Best Regards,
Anton Todorov
