Description

Hi,

We will use Zinn as an expandable system for our customers, mainly e-commerce shops, so they can get some extra CPU / BW for punctual marketing operations. The system will heavily use your the 'cloning' facility, there will be a simple template storage cloned and autoconfigured from our side.
We initially planned to use a vsite by customer, but i realized there's no way i can clone a storage from a vsite to another, so we're pretty much forced to use a single vsite for all of our customers. Would it be thinkable to add the ability to clone a storage from one vsite to another ?
On the same idea, we'd really like to be able to copy / move a storage from a vsite to another.

Thanks !

Interesting feature. vsite is currently an isolated container which various daemons try to keep in a consistent state, whatever happens.

However this seems feasable to move services (machines, storages, etc) from a vsite to another. Limitations would be:

  • Source and destination vsite must belong to the same client
  • Source and destination vsite must belong to the same site_group
  • User requesting the operation must have privileges to remove services of said family from the source vsite
  • User requesting the operation must have privileges to create services of said family in the destination vsite

Thoughts welcome.
