With the release of AOS 5.0 we have some major features and one i’m looking forward to work with is the Self Service portal, to get started with it the first thing we need to do is increase the CVM memory size. We can do this quite easily using the VIRSH command.
Lets take a look :
First we need to SSH to the AHV host, we can see the name of the CVM running on this host by running :
virsh list --all | grep CVM
When we have the CVM name we need to shut it down by running
root@ahv# virsh shutdown cvm_name
replacing cvm_name with the CVM name running on the host we do this for each command:
We can have a look to check the memory config running on the host
root@ahv# virsh dumpxml cvm_name | egrep -i "cpu|memory"
This CVM has the default 16 GB, this can also be seen from Prisim
Next we need to set the max size and memory size to 24GB
root@ahv# virsh setmaxmem cvm_name --config --size ram_gbGiB root@ahv# virsh setmem cvm_name --config --size ram_gbGiB
Then we can start the CVM and were
root@ahv# virsh start cvm_name
If you connect to Prism and look at the CVM you can see it now has 24GB memory
Repeat for the rest of the CVM’s and we should be able to enable the Self Service porthole.
